Chemo #5 was Wednesday. The meds that they give me during the chemo help avoid allergic reactions, etc. They also tend to make me feel really, really good for a day and a half afterwards. As in manic. I dash about the house with lots of energy and feel well until I crash two days later.
Today I crashed, but the landing was surprisingly soft. This time I'm experiencing only mild weakness and achiness in my legs. No nausea. Some "inertia" which describes the feeling better than do the words "tired" or "lazy". It's a strange feeling...I lie on the sofa and think about getting up and doing something but my body totally disregards anything going on in my brain.
Garden News: Not only the robins but also the local squirrels have found the cherry tree. This morning one little fellow was happily hopping through the tree, shaking the branches and leaves. All I could see was his fluffy tail sticking out through the leaves. He was a coward, though, for the moment he heard me slide open the patio doors he hopped to the ground and made a hasty escape.
Where is Whiner the $800 Cat when I need him?
