Things are okay so far, one day further in. No nausea, no more butt pain than usual (i.e. I slept fitfully, but I slept), a little tired, no more sniffles. In about half an hour I take another dose of chemo pills, with lunch, then have radiation again just after 2 this afternoon.
No big plans for the weekend, except more of those pills. It would be really nice if I could sleep straight through the night, but that hasn't happened for a couple of weeks now. Otherwise, game on.
I've been emailing with a guy in almost exactly my situation, just begun chemo and radiation this week, but in a suburb of Paris, France. He's 48, and both he and his wife have been writing to me about their experiences. His treatment is a bit different, but it's useful to communicate with someone on a similar trajectory, even if he is in another hemisphere.
