If it's not one thing it's another. A new day more Adventures. Did manage to get in 7,000 steps just by spending 5 hours in a chair. Going to see if I can get to 10,000 today maybe that'll flush this stuff out of my body quicker.
Well that sucks but so glad that you have an understanding and helpful husband
At least you got some good rest.
Just curious, does walking help the body flush chemo out faster? I know they tell me to drink water and stay hydrated but I thought we wanted to keep it in our system to do it's job... honestly I don't know enough about how chemo works to know how much time is required to get the total benefit before it leaves our body.
