We made it to Houston. It was quite a drive but we listened to an audiobook to help kill the time. My husband did all the driving and I slept off and on. Normally when I come to Houston, it’s on my “off” week. For some reason this trip is on my “bad” week. So I’m feeling pretty exhausted. I’ve thrown up a few times, but I’m hoping that it’s just the normal after-chemo issues and not that I caught Little Man’s stomach virus. I really, really don’t want to carry that nasty stomach bug into a cancer hospital.
There were no openings in the hotel last night, so we stayed with my husband’s aunt and uncle. We’re really blessed to have them here. They’ve helped a lot on the trips out here. This is the first trip where we have a car, so staying with them was an option. They offered to let us stay the whole time but all of my appointments today are after 4:30, and it would be late before we got back. It’ll probably be nine o’clock before I get back to the room as it is. Tomorrow I won’t see the doctor until 2:00, so my husband and I are hoping to go to the aquarium in the morning. I hope I feel up for it.
I’m not really nervous about this trip, but somewhat apprehensive. I don’t know what he’s going to tell me. Do I get a break? If so, for how long? A month? Six months? How often will I have to scan while I’m on my break? Can I scan at home or will I still need to come to Houston? I’m actually finally feeling so much better now that I started that new water pill. I have lost 22 pounds of water weight in a week and a half. Crazy hunh? I feel like a new person.
That’s about all the news for now. I will try to update as I know more.
