Feeling better

This round of chemo has been much easier than last round. My sister asked me what I did differently.... how I wish I knew! Then I could duplicate it!

I'm still quite fatigued - getting the kids ready this morning really wiped me out. And I'm still dealing with some nausea. It seems to hit in late afternoon. Again I wish I knew why that was, but for now, I lay down and take my gravol.

I've been able to eat since Thursday, which is fantastic. I've been living on a fairly limited diet of water, watered down Gatorade, premium plus crackers, cereal with milk (crispix and cheerios) and small portions of Ben & Jerry's chocolate ice cream (that was new today). But at least it is eating! Hopefully in the next few days other food will become a bit more appealing and more able to "stay down".
