Some days I hate cancer. I used to have a crazy-awesome immune system. Now I have tonsillitis. 😦
My poor husband never gets a break.
The doctor said if I had come in a day later it probably would have already been pneumonia. It was already in my lymph nodes. I’m glad that I was on the ball and went in when I did.
As a result, though, I am unable to sleep (again). My hot flashes were unbelievable yesterday/ last night. I don’t know if it was because I wasn’t able to take my medication until the swelling went down, or if the addition of the new medication, but the night sweats were some of the worst I have ever had.
Please pray for quick healing for me and strength for my husband. He is constantly having to step it up for me and I worry that he will wear himself out. Yesterday he took complete control of our son. The only things I was able to do was fix his dinner (then head straight back to bed), and read his story at bedtime. Hubby did everything else, including learning and cooking a new recipe last night. He never complains, and he says he doesn’t feel like he is doing extra, but I feel he is almost constantly caring for both of us. And we haven’t even gotten to chemo yet. I feel so incredibly frustrated. I never get sick. Never. I have been more sick this year than in the rest of my life combined. I understand that is part of cancer and a compromised immune system, but that doesn’t stop me from feeling upset and frustrated. Prayers would be much appreciated.
