Its been a bit of an up and down week. Last weekend was certainly a low point and things seemed to be getting better for a bit. But then this weekend has been pretty rough and feels like she is back to square one. Lots of cramps, pain and vomiting despite all the heavy antiemetics. And lots of fatigue. She has not felt this tired and sore before. Will have to engage the pain and symptom folks tomorrow to see what they think. Kath is due for another big CT scan some time in the next week or so. If you recall, there was a mass on her pancreas we need to check on. So the closer we get to that, the anxiety level will start to crank up. For now, we are not really thinking about it.
One of the “plus” things about all the radiation treatments I have discovered in retrospect is that it gives you a sense of progress. You sort of feel that with each treatment, you are “doing something” and you make “progress” because in simple terms, you click over that counter. Now that its all done, there is a lot more time to let your mind wander which can be a bad thing some times.
All the emails and posts really do help, a lot. Kath looks forward to each and every one so keep em coming. She loves to hear what everyone is up to while she is stuck in the bubble.
