A Week in the Life of Dollycas
My trip to the wound care clinic this past week had me really depressed as there just seems to be no improvement. The doctor there said it was time to go to my oncologist for a little help. Both she and I feel that one of my cancer drugs is hindering my healing. When the warnings of the drug say it “can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections” and low blood cell counts, which we saw a couple of weeks ago that I am experiencing, I agreed it was time for action. I was barely home from the clinic when I received a call to stop taking the medication, which I did that day. But until the drug clears my system, and it could take a while, I am still feeling tired and rundown. I go back to the wound care clinic next Tuesday and meet with my oncologist and have labwork on Thursday. I know I was on the medication for a reason and had been tolerating it well until recently. I hope he can come up with a new plan of attack so I can get my legs healed and feel better by the holidays.
On Thursday my spirits picked up nicely. Daughter #2 took me to get my first haircut since Mr. Dollycas shaved my head when my hair was falling out in clumps due to chemo. It had come back in with some nice curls but was also coming in very uneven. It is really thin but soft on the top and longer in the back, especially on one side. Another side effect of the drug was hair loss so since I am off of it now I thought it was a great time to get it evened up and hopefully promote new growth. I cried as I looked in the mirror. I felt like a new woman. Daughter #2 commented I had some pep in my step. Still tired but grateful to look more like me. I am used to having really thick hair that grows fast so I hope that comes back eventually.
Other than that I spent a lot of time at my desk. I am really behind booking book tours and that is not fair to my bloggers or the authors. My email inbox was also overflowing. I had decided to work late Friday night to catch up on emails but Outlook started to have major issues after 6 p.m. which was very frustrating. Maybe it was the world’s way of telling me to go and relax and I did with a good book and some television. It was back up and working yesterday so I am back to winding my way through all those lovely messages.
How was your week? Pick me up, tell me something fun you did last week!
