Chemo and grocery shopping yesterday
Wednesday, March 06, 2013
Yesterday I had another long session at the chemo clinic; they were short one nurse so that meant more waiting time for everything. My hemoglobin went down more, to 9.1. That didn't surprise me, because of the level of my fatigue. Sometimes, I think it's not just the low number that makes me tired, but how fast it drops. Last week, it had been 10. something, so it was quite a drop this time.
After chemo was finally done, my best friend and I grabbed a quick lunch then she took me grocery shopping. I was soooo tired by the time I got home, around 5pm. I'm glad to have the shopping over with, but I think with the way my fatigue level has been, it's probably not a such a good idea to shop the same day I have chemo. At least next week is my "off" week.
As tired as I was, it took me a long time to fall asleep last night. I was fighting nausea and a headache too. Feeling better today even though I am kind of slow moving, feel kind of like a sloth! I got a Sit and Be Fit workout in and finally, after procrastinating much of the day, got started on the laundry.
The weather is slowly starting to warm up; I will be glad when all the ice is gone. I almost had a fall yesterday, while I was outside spreading ice melter around my walkway. My left leg unexpectedly slid backwards; I caught myself before I fell, but I jerked my "bad' hip in the process and it's still a little extra sore from that today. I don't think I did any damage to the joint, but I think I might have pulled some muscles there.
