I am sad to report that I am worse today. Last night I started vomiting a lot which, in turn, caused significant abdominal pain. They put me out of my misery with an extra dose of pain meds. I was able to sleep for about four hours or so.
The vomiting continued all morning until I asked my nurse if there could possibly be any other options besides Zofran. That clearly wasn't helping. She came back a little later after having a pow wow with the pharmacist. They now have me on a "cancer cocktail" - a combination of meds that they offer to cancer patients who need a powerful anti-emetic. I still feel extremely nauseous, but so far I've only thrown up twice.
The events of last night and today have exhausted me. I have not been able to eat and can only sip liquids slowly. I had to write to Gavin and Brian's teachers to tell them they wouldn't be at school and each email took me about 15-20 minutes. I kept falling asleep and would wake up having to erase a whole lot ajjdhnnsdkjßxhdduwjb x
See what I mean?
The doctor was in and was unimpressed with my progress. He said I'd likely be here a couple more days. I'm sure you can guess how I feel about that... and I'm sure you are right.
