My Diary from the Trenches

Day 60


Day 60. On day 60 I am happy to be home in remission and savoring the beautiful weather. Things have been going pretty well. I’m getting more comfortable with the IV medication, though this is the first night I will have to do it entirely on my own (wish me luck). I’ve changed my Tylenol schedule so I’m taking more in the evenings in an attempt to get me through dinner time to bedtime. Unfortunately bedtime is still really rough. Because the fevers always break in the middle of the night while I’m sleeping, I’m not getting much sleep at all. I won’t go into the gory details of what happens when my fevers break, but it isn’t pleasant. Next Tuesday will be one full week on both medications and I’m hoping to see some fever relief after that. In the meantime I’m managing.

I got a new wig today. I like it better than the one I had but it still feels a little odd to wear fake hair. However, with it on you could never tell I was in treatment for anything which is nice occasionally. Thank you Robyn for going with me and going through all of the styles. It was fun to see what haircuts I will never give myself in the future. And I do look best as a blond. We tried a red wig because I always considered that for a change and I just don’t think it’s me.

I’m looking forward to seeing some friends tonight and then relaxing tomorrow. I hope everyone has a good weekend.
