No posts the last few days. Why? I’m sleeping! It feels good although I admit, I wish I was spending a majority of my time doing cooler stuff.
A combination of things are going on with my body these days. I continue to heal from the WBR, while reacclimating to the twice daily Crizotinib (again).
My ears are feeling almost 100%. I’ll be up to wearing jumbo sized earrings soon! (My motto: Shorter the hair; the bigger the earrings.) My head is still shedding. The Meaderm continues to work like a charm, when I’m awake to apply it.
The body is certainly reacting to the Crizotinib, much like last time when I started in October 2011. I’m extremely drained and moderately nauseous. I’m taking Zofran or Compazine to combat the nausea and it seems to help. I’m patiently waiting for my body to adjust and these side effects to subside, again like last time. I’m not looking forward to the constant GI issues returning, which I imagine will do once I eliminate the constipating drugs, like Zofran.
Things are looking on the up and up. I’m looking forward to distancing myself from my cancer diagnosis until my next chest/liver CT in 8 weeks and that brain MRI in 9 weeks.
I’ve made some committing purchases the last few days – two amazing outdoor chairs for me and SW to enjoy the backyard and a replacement camping tent. I’ve got things to do this summer that hopefully include backyard birdwatching and bouldering out-of-town with my dear friends.
