Damn, this new chemo has me so dizzy that I can't even walk through the grocery store without fear of fainting and making a scene. So now I take the little motorized scooters, and I feel ridiculous. Did you know that it is impossible to open the refrigerator cases while seated in one of those little scooters? Now I know how people in wheel chairs feel! I am used to being more independent.
Good thing: this chemo is so nasty that they give me steroids before each treatment to help my body tolerate it. The steroids have fixed my bad knee about 90%!!!!!! Yay! Thank you, God! I can walk. Now if I can only stop being so dizzy.
Bad news: complication to my abdominal surgery. Not serious. There is a pouch of fluid collection just below my rib cage. It is just beneath the skin and it is harmless. It is about the size of a fist. I am told that it will be naturally absorbed by my body -in a few months. Meanwhile, I feel like I am John Hurt in "Alien" and I have this thing protruding from my stomach. This sucks.
Good news: We are flying my daughter and her family to visit us in October. I get to see my Grandbabies! My son says he wants to come at a different time, but I will believe that when he appears at the airport. Maybe this time he will come. I think he is in denial.
Thanks for listening to me whine. I am really frustrated.
