Day after

I think my life is going to change a bit while I go through my treatments.  The nurse told me I would find myself wide awake yesterday evening, but I was so drowsy by 7:30 pm I crawled into bed, finally getting up around 1:30.  I stayed up for a couple of hours and then slept til 8:00 this morning.  I usually hate it when I wake up in the middle of the night unable to go back to sleep, but I may as well get used to it for now.   The after effects of the next treatment might be totally different.

I would like to go with Jeannie & Donald to Costco today.  I'm a little hesitant about getting into crowds and there will be lots of people stocking up for tomorrow's game, so I may just give them my list.  Joe has invited everyone to his house but as I don't care for football and don't want to be in a crowded house, I will skip it.   I'm fortunate to have remained healthy throughout the past year or so, with the exception of the lack of energy, and I hate to be brought down at this point.  

My coffee tasted so good this morning - nothing like it to start the day off on a good note.  If you like coffee, that is.  I make it sort of a ritual, grinding the beans, etc., and it's one of the best parts of my day.

I may be back later and add to this post, but I'll probably be back with you tomorrow.  


  1. Hope you get lots of rest. Thinking of you!

    1. Thanks, Karen. That means a lot, especially considering I feel like a prisoner in my own home although I sure don't want to go anywhere there are a lot of people.

  2. Is one of the ingredients dexamethasone?

    Virtual hugs,


  3. I, in my old age, have developed a liking for coffee too.... i always liked the smell but never the taste. Mom LOVED it, wish i could have developed the taste earlier so i could have shared that with her....
