Day + 10   Sleep and Bliss

Hello Everyone,

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!

Xoxo
