Day 46 – Today I’ve got a T. Rex #hatONit from Courtney! Look at those chompers! Spent the day looking at data and making figures, with a very satisfying break for pilates. I walked a lot yesterday and it felt so good to stretch out. The picture with the installation in it is from the List Visual Art Center’s exhibit from the Villa Design Group.
I am doing really well on this chemo regime. I’ve had three infusions of it so far and I know what to expect now. I get the infusion on a Wednesday, sleep for two days, feel pretty crappy for two days, followed by a few mornings with some nausea and days feeling fine. Then I get about two weeks of feeling really normal. I was on another chemo regime earlier in the year and I was functioning, making it to office about half the time, working from home a lot. After switching chemo regimes I see how much I was dragging before, how much better my energy is on this regime. A screwed up night’s sleep no longer ruins the next several days. I’m not exhausted for the rest of the day after picking up some groceries or cleaning the kitchen. I feel so fortunate that feeling this good coincides with the final push to defending my degree. Having the energy to work long days is such a relief.
