Treatment Day 33…

5 Week Mark!  Only 3 more days to go!

On that note…I got to sleep fairly decently last night, but it didn’t last.  Fell asleep around 11pm, if not earlier…but I awoke around 2:30 a.m. or so.  Tried getting a snack of cucumbers, but that didn’t help, so at 3:30 a.m. I made some hot chocolate with milk…that seemed to work around 4:30 a.m., but Dawnette decided to wake me up around 5:30 a.m. (not gonna complain…read between the lines… ;o) ).

Anyhow, needless to say I was exhausted.  I didn’t really go back to sleep, but went to my radiation treatment as usual at 8 a.m.  When it was over, I went home & had my usual Monday morning meetings.  I was in immense pain as I had multiple bowel movements.  I tried icing it down during my meetings, but it didn’t do much to help.  I took an extra morphine & hydrocodone & that seemed to help some.

Nothing in the refrigerator looked good for lunch, and while I’m sure I’ll regret it later on, I jotted over to BK quickly to grab a burger & some onion rings.  I worked till early afternoon & then I simply had to rest.

When Dawnette got home, I was passed out until about 7:30 p.m.  I got up & did some minor chores (sweeping the kitchen, family, dining & living rooms).  That exhausted me, so I went upstairs & laid down & worked on bills, answered work e-mails, etc.

Finally around 9 p.m. I got a bit hungry, so I went downstairs & made us a ham sandwich, some corn nuggets & cucumbers in a vinaigrette mix.  We watched a movie & just relaxed until bed time…
