Wow, didn't know a drug could work so fast. I took my first dose of Temodar last night before bed at 10:30 and by 2:00 was up sick. Now I know, so tonight I'll take the anti nausea med first and hopefully fight off the nausea and sickness. It's making for a rather yucky morning. I think I'll be off coffee until this drug is all done with. One of my indulgences I'll have to do without. Oh, and no wine either. Besides not needing or wanting the acid taste, you're supposed to stay away from alcohol. It will be easy. Somehow you lose your appetite and taste for the things that are bad for you. So I had a bottle of "Ensure Immune Health" instead this morning, creamy milk chocolate shake, yum!
Today will be day 3 of radiation to the chest. There's an X on my chest, right above my cleavage (or lack there of) and slightly to the right side where they are targeting. So far so good. Everyday at 10:30am I'll be there.
I'm hoping to run one last bit of Christmas errands today afterward. I think this may turn out to be a long week with the start of chemo... so I better get it done!
