An Unwanted Journey: Day 0207 - Nausea
Saturday saw my first experience with chemotherapy-induced nausea. It wasn't too bad and I took my anti-nausea drugs as recommended. But, it did lay me low enough that I had to sleep almost all day and night. I also had no appetite whatsoever, something reflected on the scales this morning.
Thank goodness for the US Open and the FIFA world cup games. When I was awake, I could catch a little from my vantage point in the recliner in the family room. Unfortunately, I was too tired to catch the 4-0 romp of the Edmonton Oilers over the Caroline Hurricane at night. There really is so little on TV that I am grateful for the sporting events.
Today is Father's Day and I am feeling much better. The heat and humidity are tough, though. My wife and I went for an abbreviated walk this afternoon, but I was amazed at how little resilience I had after a day of resting. It will take time for me to build up a reservoir of strength and endurance.
