Day 2 condition after 1st chemo treatment 2/27/14
24 hours after chemo there were minimal side effects consisting of battles with nausea, sluggishness & acid reflux. Things started to deteriorate a bit as she slept or should I say attempted to sleep through the night. The acid reflux caused pain under her right shoulder blade which was so bad that she was up & down throughout the night. Finally she fell asleep around 4 a.m. only to awake around 11 a.m. feeling like she had been run over by a Mack truck. Since she has been awake she has been experiencing severe flu like symptoms that include body aches, sluggishness and the persistent acid reflux but thankfully the nausea is gone. Her appetite was not quite as good today as yesterday but she was able to stomach enough food to maintain at least a bit of strength. She is feeling bad today but still as beautiful as ever. When I look at her face I see the most beautiful woman in the world however when I look deep into her eyes I can tell she is in a battle. It was a tough one but we'll be better tomorrow.
