Taxol number 1 is done. Only 3 more treatments to go! I did have an allergic reaction to the Taxol, but they gave me Benadryl, extra steroids, and some Ativan, which knocked me out. By the time I woke up, I only had an hour to go, and I was feeling much better.
So far, I haven’t had any side effects. In fact, I feel pretty normal. I’m tired because the steroids kept me up last night, so I think I’ll take a nap before lunch. However, last night felt great. Dave came over and we watched Argo. I stayed up much later than I typically do on chemo nights. I had lots of energy and no nausea at all. I feel pretty much the same today, though slightly tired. If I continue feeling like this, then Taxol will be a breeze compared to AC. *knocks on wood*
My new bedding arrived yesterday and I like it. I’m going out to do some shopping this afternoon, but I think I need a nap first. I still want to get the end tables and new night stand. Weekends Only has some I like so I’ll probably go check it out. Plus, I feel the need to go to Nordstrom Rack and try to find something cute to wear this evening. Tonight Dave and I are going out, and I’m looking forward to that. I think this will be the best weekend I’ve had in a while. I’m completely amazed and totally thrilled with the lack of nausea. I can tolerate almost anything else.
