It has been a slow and cautious recovery. As of today, I am eating solid foods however very cautiously. This morning I made an omelet with cheese and brown rice. My daughter and I split it. It set well in my stomach. Then this afternoon I made a milkshake for us both. My strength feels almost normal until I do something or a group of somethings at one time that takes a bit of energy, sometimes I’ll feel the drop in my reserves and get light headed and other times I’ll just get tired and take a nap.
This however is soooo much better than I was Thursday night, Friday morning when I had the fever. I am so thankful I listened to my instincts and pushed the water, by 4am my temperature was 37.6 C. This was such a strong affirmation for me in regards to trusting and following my instincts that I hope I’ll never doubt them again.
I am preparing myself for my visit to my Oncologist on Monday. I need to ensure I remain strong in my convictions and stand my ground when she tries to convince me to continue chemo. So wish me luck and pray that I’ll remain strong and my mind will be much quicker than it usually is when trying to discuss matters like this with a specialist.
