Day 4 after Chemo #1...a little harder than the rest!

10:45pm - It has been a pretty rough day. She didn't make it to work until around 2:00pm and managed to get in about 4 hrs before coming home wasted and with a fever. We ended up calling the Dr. who prescribed an antibiotic for the fever. She had a warm bath, barely got in the last of "The Biggest Loser" and was off to sleep. Hoping for a much better day tomorrow.

10:00am - The nurse said that Tue may be Connie's hardest day...and it appears to be. I got her up at 7am and she was feeling very achy already. Had her take all of her pills and she went back to sleep for 45 min. Got her up again and she felt less achy then and managed to get dressed and ready for work, but just as I was coming up the stairs to say good-bye (or see if she was going to need me to take her to work) she was rushing to the couch to sit down as a wave of dizziness suddenly overcame her and she rested for another 15 min and tried to get up again. More dizziness. I finally got her to call into work and at least go to sleep for a couple hours and try again after that. She's now back in bed and was asleep about the time her head hit the pillow.
