It’s Thursday! Day +10 and this whole journey it was the day I thought would be the earliest I could be released. But here I am, sitting on my couch, cuddling with my little one.
Yesterday was hard. I have no energy and to do the simplest task is pure exhaustion. I was in so much stomach pain and my heart was still racing. After all the excitement, I crawled in my bed, toasting Vonna with a dose of Maalox and slept. Now, I may have gotten up and used the bathroom in the middle of the night, I don’t remember. What I do remember is waking up and realizing I got 14 hours of sleep. Unbelievable! I feel better. I was sleep deprived and running on pure adrenaline these past few days.
Today, Operation Hibernation starts. I plan on staying in as much as possible until my counts rise. So I will post less frequently. Then I can go out when there is low crowd and less people. I am excited to start eating some fresh veggies and fruit tomorrow. My neutorpenic diet is much less severe then it has been. I still am sporting my low gerd diet and God Willing even that will go back to normal now that I am off the roids. The hardest thing to get used to is the energy level. Simple tasks exhaust me and I can’t help around the house like I want to. I’m can barely get myself a water. Anything I do requires a rest afterwards. I feel very helpless. But, as I feel better, we will start to walk and start to gain strength. Then before you know it, I will be running around. Day by day…
That’s all for now! Thanks again everyone!
