Yesterday, early evening I came down with a crashing headache and I felt like every part of my body ached! I thought ‘what the heck is going on’! So, took a 500 mg Tylenol and went to bed at 6 ish, still no relief so took another one at 9:00 and fell asleep finally.
I was happy I had cooked my mother and I’s dinner, did up and put away all dishes, the cats were fed and liter boxes done before lying down. I can’t rest properly until my chores are completed…how I am!
I had received a call from the Oncologists office to go to the lab…off I went for a non fasting blood draw as a pre op for my paracentesis procedure earlier in the afternoon, and while I was driving to the lab the radiology dept had called me and I did pick up my cell phone while driving, pushed the speaker button and got all flustered looking for a safe place to pull over and talk….I think that is what gave me my headache to be honest.
Anyway, this morning it was still with me, but not as bad…I made myself a nice pot of coffee and ‘viola’!! My headache is completely gone! I remembered that yesterday I only took a sip or two before going in for my shot and when your a coffee drinker…I think it is just something your body is use to having and it along with become flustered with the phone call while driving….I got the headache!
Moving forward now…the radiology dept called me just a bit ago and I will be having my procedure on Monday at 10:00. Transportation arrangements have been made, they will be picking me up between 8-8:30 as I need to go to admitting…out patient admitting at 9:00.
No Leukine shot today is scheduled, but Saturday and Sunday each at 9:00 AM I get one, and Monday I am scheduled for one so if radiology didn’t tell my Oncologists office already, I will let them know for the shot on Monday and the Lab on Monday…I won’t be there.
At least I know where I am headed this week! I thought I was going to have to go in today for my procedure and was thrilled my headache is now gone so I can now have a normal day…no appointments to dash off to anyway!
Yes, stomach is big, as big as it was in January when I had my stomach drained of fluid and the diagnosis finally came about from EGD with biopsy results came through….cancer.
The procedure doesn’t hurt, they give you a little something so you are comfortable, so not afraid to have it done like I was the first time!
Yesterday when I went in for my shot, I met a very nice lady with bone cancer. She has been up and down with her treatments overtime and had the most upbeat personality! She got her pain Rx from the Dr. and stated she can’t live without her pain medication and was off to a casino to play the slots!! Said life is too short not to have fun and she was absolutely precious to speak with. I truly admired her for all she has been through.
I also noted in both of the facilities I have been to that they have little baskets setting on a table here and there with beanies that people have crocheted. The baskets are over flowing, so will be putting crocheting any at this time on the back burner. I also noted that those with extreme hair loss are not wearing them, they are wearing all cotton fabric hats that tie up in the back. I think the cotton fabrics are far more comfortable to the scalp then all of the acrylic beanies I saw…but if I do decide to make them in the future, it will be with organic cotton and they will be individually wrapped and placed in the baskets.
So on with my day, I want to shower, and go visit with my sister and my nephew…home from school the rest of this week after his heart procedure. My sister has a bad headache herself today and I want to see if there isn’t something she needs help with around the house.
I was thinking our weather has changed from Winter weather to sunny and warm out now weather…maybe too that is why we girls got headaches! I just don’t know. Both of us can get stressed out pretty much when things don’t go smoothly and perhaps that has a lot to do with it too.
Needless to say, I am going to enjoy my day, take my big stomach to the shower now and we shall go visit for a little bit!!
Have a wonderful day!!
