Bock, Bock, Bock

Okay, it's only Tuesday! Time goes by so slowly, yet when I look back I can't figure out what I've been doing. The days seem long. When I feel better and my hemoglobin is elevated I don't sleep as much. Everyday, even every hour I feel differently. One minute I'll be dancing in front of the bathroom mirror (not a pretty sight) and the next I'll be laying in bed feeling nauseous. No, the nausea isn't from watching myself dance. My Dad and I decided they wouldn't give me three weeks to recover if I didn't need it. I am tired, more and more often I get nauseous, I'm itchy, I'm moody (just ask my Mom), and my taste buds change. Speaking of my taste buds, everyday my Mom asks me "Carolyn, what sounds good?". This is a harder question to answer than you think. Some things sound good and others don't. I am not that hungry. I decided I wanted rotisserie chicken and corn. So after they all ate roast beef sandwiches and potatoes (which smelled gross to me) she went to buy a chicken. She came home 15 minutes later and starts cooking corn. My Mom has it all ready and honestly, it smelled terrible. So needless to say we have an entire rotisserie chicken and corn if anyones hungry? I felt awful about not eating it, but I couldn't help it. Sorry Mommy.

Today was probably the hardest day yet. I flat out didn't feel good. I have lots of color. We are guessing it is probably not my hemoglobin. We are thinking it is the after effects of chemotherapy, but then again I'm not a doctor. We are going to clinic to talk to the one with the med school diploma Thursday to check my counts. Until then, I'll be climbing.


  1. Carolyn, think of this as a great exersize...15 yrs from now, married n pregnant: moody, nauseous and changing taste buds! it will be a piece of cake I promise you will enjoy! Even then your Mom will be asking you, "Carolyn, what sounds good"! Keep the Faith Baby!
    We Love YOU! XOXOX
