Waiting on Second Chemo

It’s getting late here and I’m wide awake. I’m starting to get a bit nervous waiting to head to chemo lounge tomorrow. I’m not sure why I’m nervous as the first treatment went quite well. I guess I’m just hoping that this one goes well too.

The kids had me over tonight to hold the baby and play with the puppy before I start my ‘toxic’ period. 😀 That little girl is gorgeous and she smiles in her sleep. The puppy likes licking her… personally I think she probably tastes like milk and her diapers sometimes smell like something puppy would love to roll in if found in a field. 😛

I’m not oozing so much from the incision any more, but I think part of it is still open. If I put my finger down there  it goes in to far and I got a bit queasy and don’t touch there any more. I’m going to ask the nurses tomorrow if I could have a few new steri-strips to put on it again.

My bowels haven’t quite decided how they want to behave yet. After my constipation bout two weeks ago  things have been a bit better. I now go much more frequently but it’s not really diarrhea. Can’t tell my behind that things are better. I’m a little sore down there and find that wet wipes are my friend (I feel like the baby 😛 ).
