I didn't see that comin'

Treatment #1 Round #2

I sooo did not see it coming. I have never felt sick during a treatment before, but yesterday!

Well, yesterday I felt so sick. My muscles were shaking, I got hotflash upon hotflash, nausea, lightheadedness. Finally had to call the nurse over to check blood pressure and give me something. She stopped the pumps for about 15 minutes to give me a break. My dear wonderful friend Lisa was there with me for this and took the afternoon off to stay with me when she saw that I wasn't feeling so Hot (get it? haha even though I was feeling really Hot. lol

So I then took a nap and felt much better when I was awake. Still though, my muscles were shaky and I felt like a lead weight when I stood up to go. I made it home safe and sound, went to bed early and feel much more human this morning.

The nurse said I shouldn't go through that every time....Lord, let's hope not!!!

On to regularly schedule tasks today!

Good news first....this new med will not give me cold sensitivity in my mouth so I can keep drinking cold wheatgrass juice, and smoothies. Bring it on!
love and hugs to all.


  1. Sorry to hear that this treatment made you feel sick, but glad to hear that you will be able to continue with your smoothies! Your in my thoughts! Hugs!

  2. Just happened upon your blog. I can't imagine what you must be going through. I hope that you continue to fight this and WIN.

  3. I'm so happy for you that you will be able to continue with your cold smoothies. Another silver lining:)
    Hopefully the nurse is right about the possibility that your following treatments will not cause you the same discomforts!
    Love you so much and will be with you soon.

  4. That sounds horrid!! I'm glad your new meds won't give you the cold sensitivity- maybe you'll get to go out this winter after all!! Love you-
