Having a good day for a change. No chemo side effects today, but usually the day after I'm ok; it's usually the 2nd or 3rd day that I start feeling them. I slept good last night, slept in a little bit this morning, (but not so long that it should keep me awake tonight) with minimum pain. I was able to put off taking a pain pill until 11:30am. My shoulder was starting to hurt then. It wasn't bad, but my doctors are always telling me to stay on top of the pain, to take the pills before it gets too bad. I'm just bad sometimes about waiting too long because I don't like how tired they make me feel.
I've been having a craving for porcupine meatballs, (those are meatballs made with rice in them, in a tomato sauce). I bought the ingredients yesterday. Since I knew I might not have the energy later in the day, I made the meatballs this morning. Now all I have to do when I'm ready to bake them is pour the sauce on them before I stick them in the oven.
Been puttering around the house a little bit, but not doing anything too strenuous. My goal is to have some "spoons" left for Saturday.
