I’m still here.
Yesterday was rough. It’s early, but I’m feeling a bit better today. I haven’t taken any pain meds yet and I’m managing okay without them. That’s a good sign. I’m still limited in what I can do. Moving is difficult. Bending is basically impossible. I can’t lift more than five pounds for the next week. I hate being so limited, but I know it’s important to heal. My discharge papers say that after I’m healed, this drain should not limit my day to day functions. We shall see.
I cried a lot yesterday. It was a big pity party over here. It was an awful day, but I survived, and hopefully I’m stronger for it.
I start the new chemo this afternoon: Eribulin. I’m nervous. I joined the Facebook support group for the drug and it doesn’t sound good. But I’m trying to stay hopeful. My doc says it’s a lot like Abraxane, and I managed okay on Abraxane. Send me good vibes please.
