Post Chemo #1, Day 5 (morning)

The days are starting to run together on me. Dan had to remind me that it was Monday today. Last night was bad...worse than I had hoped. I felt really awful. As it turned out...I had a slight fever (101). They said to call if your fever gets above 100.5. So, I called. They were really good about it. The on call doctor thought it was still too early for my fever to be caused by low blood counts. He figured it really is just a virus of some kind. He asked me to take ibuprofen every 6 hours and to call back in the morning. The motrin helped. I got some relief and some sleep.

Feeling weak and shaky this must go on. A nice long, hot shower helped. I'll be taking Olivia to school soon. I will try to keep my mind off of my misery and hopefully I can get through it easier.
