August 15, chemo was a ‘go’. My weight is holding steady at 116 pounds.
I’m starting a deliberate, slow exercise routine. Walking for now, and a bit on the exercise cycle. My main goal is not to overdo it. I can see myself being quite enthusiastic and doing too much. Well, I typically do that!
Blood counts were ‘go’ for chemo today. Fever watch is still on. I had an almost-alarm fever this morning, but all signs were clear at the hospital so we went ahead with the chemo dose today.
I stopped at the grocery store on the way home from the hospital (it’s on the bus route) for ingredients for a quiche. Not just any quiche, but one after the fashion of what a dear friend made for me. Broccoli, asparagus, artichoke hearts, summer sausage, spinach on top. No crust. A little gluten-free baking mix in the eggs, along with the almond milk.
For a first attempt, it’s a good one! it’s very firm, next time I would add more almond milk.
Food is on my mind a lot, because I have lost another 3 pounds since my last check-in 2 weeks ago. I only weigh 116 pounds now! Food and eating seem to take up more of my thoughts than much of anything else.
Signing off for now,
Tuesday, no, Monday overnight I was uncomfortable with a fever. Not high enough to warrant a hospital visit. I’ve taken Tylenol to keep the temperature down, once I determine it is not too high.
This afternoon, my temperature was not indicative of fever. It was normal.
So I am wondering if this is the end of that fever session… I certainly hope so!
