Round 42 started on Saturday, May 11th. We started it on a Saturday, as my regular nurse Elizabeth came back, but she was going out of town on Wednesday for the birth of her grand baby. I didn’t mind doing it on the weekend, but I don’t think my husband was too thrilled! I also found out from Elizabeth that she’s moving in August, so she won’t be my nurse anymore. I’m so sad, but she’s going to live with one of her daughter’s to help her with the kids. Hopefully I can find a good replacement that I like and get along with.
The next day was Sunday, Mother’s Day. I don’t usually do anything for Mother’s Day anyway, and none of my kids were around, except Anthony, who lives with me, so it was all good. So this was how I spent my Mother’s Day:
I slept most of the infusion until Anthony got home from work. I’m glad I slept, because I had a migraine. I don’t know why, but for some reason, I’ve been getting a lot of migraines lately during and after my infusions. I’m going to have to talk to my doctor about it.
Anyway, when Anthony got home from work, he brought me flowers for Mother’s Day. I was so surprised! It was so sweet of him, and made me tear up. They were so pretty!
Day 3 was the day before my birthday. I can’t believe I was turning 51. Here’s me in the last day I can wear this shirt.
I slept most of the day, because my head and back were hurting. No matter how much fluids or water I drink, the side effects still get me. I just can’t get away from them.
Happy birthday to me! I can’t believe I have to do my infusions on my birthday, but at least it’s the last day. Also, I can’t believe I’m 51 years old. Man, where do the years go?
I’m so glad I got to see Elizabeth again, but I’m sad that she’s moving away in August and I won’t see her anymore. We’ve been together for 3 years. I’ll miss her!
After this round, I got really bad migraines, and had to stay in bed all weekend, and part of the following week. My migraine medication isn’t working, and I may need to find new medication to help me. Hoping to see my neurologist soon.
