Kicking Breast Cancer's Butt

Daily Archives: May 16, 2013

Ugh, I’m so tired.  My hands and feet sort of ache, which I think it caused by one of the anti nausea drugs.

The first time we did this, I was so relieved and euphoric that I immediately went out and had a beer, and a huge meal.  By 8pm, I was miserable.  I took it easy this time.  No idea where I’ll land or when the IV anti nausea meds will wear off.  I’m not too worried, I kind of know what to expect.  And I have a battalion of anti nausea medications to attack the roller coaster of nausea ride.

Oh, and I agreed to do a clinical study on fatigue.  No extra appointments, it’s all surveys I complete on line.

I’ll write more later.  Think I’ll take a nap right now.

I’m getting ready for my second infusion.  Showered, used my Nioxin as advised by Jami at MODA, did my makeup (forgot eyelid primer, oh well), then started on my hair.  Seems like if I mousse it when it’s still wet, it takes longer to dry, and I don’t get the lift that Emi did when she styled it for me.  Well, I started to blow dry my hair, realized I forgot the mousse.  Oh, well, it still looks cute.  Went to put in the styling paste on the back and the bangs – there is quite a bit more hair coming out than normal.  Not huge clumps, as I was afraid of, just 30-40 strands, where it seems like I get 10 or so when I style my hair.  So it begins, I think.  I tried not to cry, as I didn’t want to mess up my eye makeup. Not sure I can keep it up all day.  Wish me luck.

Good thing I’m getting fitted for a wig today, huh?

I still need to learn how to tie a head scarf, but that’s what YouTube is for.

Here we go….
