Treatment Day 26…

Well, the inability to get to sleep right away continues.  Again about 3 am before I was able to get to sleep.  Hot chocolate with some toast seems to help put me to sleep though…3rd night in a row I’ve done it & I’ve gone to sleep shortly thereafter.  Plus, I’ve been using milk instead of hot water.  I’ve forgotten how much better hot chocolate is with milk…SO much creamier!

Anyhow, once I got to sleep, I slept for about 4 hours before getting up to get ready & get to my radiation treatment.  The bowel movements continued, so the morning it was *rough*.  I had 4 bowel movements in a 2 1/2 hour span – I was so miserable that shortly after taking my pills at 11:30 am, I signed off from work for the day so I could rest.

It seemed to help as I awoke when Dawnette called to tell me she was on her way home from work.  When she got home I got up &  made dinner…was in the mood to cook & felt refreshed from the nap, so I made skewered bacon wrapped shrimp (marinated with garlic, pepper, butter & grated cheese), along with stuffed mushroom caps (pruchetta, salami, diced mushrooms, garlic, butter, ham & multiple cheeses) and finally, pruchetta stuffed with marinated carrots (balsamic vinagrette mix with garlic)…it took over an hour to prep everything, so I went & rested for the 45 minutes or so everything took to cook.

Dawnette & I watched a movie & I’m gonna try to get some sleep.
