Hello my favorite people!
It is one very HOT day here in Houston. We need a nice storm.... just enough rain to cool things off and water the land. Not much has been happening. I've been feeling okay. I'm good some days and really nauseous other days. The best anti-nauseous medication is Zolfran and unfortunately I can not take it because it gives me horrible headaches. I was actually in the emergency room a few times over the last three weeks due to the horrible headaches/migraines. So my doctor gave me another "MD Anderson" only special concoction called ABH (it's a capsule containing ativan, benadryl and haldol) for the nauseousness. It works pretty good.
My hair has been thinning out in spurts. It comes out most in the shower. It seems thinner to me but my stepmom yesterday said she couldn't tell a difference. She brought me over a pot of her homemade chicken tortilla soup (yummmm.... it's good) and my dad brought me a pink harley davidson bandana cap (it's cute). Anyways - cutting my hair short was a good idea because it does look thicker and hopefully I won't have to lose it all and shave it.
David's truck is on the fritz and the a/c went out in it. He is driving my car until we can either fork out the money to get his fixed or buy him something else. With me not working, we have to be much tighter with our budget. My medical bills get thrown into a box in the bedroom..... I'm afraid to even look at them. Insurance of course doesn't cover everything.
Well, it's lunch time so I'm going to go have a bowl of the tortilla soup!
p.s. this is a photo of me getting my chemo last time and yes, my hair is that short now.
