Friday the 13th turned out to be a lucky day
There were several patients in the chemo room today in really bad shape. I won’t go into it here but I felt so sad for their circumstances.
I came home, took a bath and went to sleep. My weight (I don’t care about it btw) has been going up every day, even though my appetite is poor and I haven’t been eating much. I realized I was pumped full of 2 extra liters of fluids all 3 days which equals 6 liters. I looked it up and a liter equals 2 pounds which means I have 12 extra pounds of fluid in my body and I am definitely retaining water. I feel like a big giant water balloon.
This is really interfering with my sleep as I seem to be in the bathroom every hour (sorry tmi). I should have made them catheterize me so I could just sleep!
Thats today’s update. Going to just try to sleep now.
