Checking in for 2023-11-27:

  • Today I finished my last course of Lonsurf for this round. I'm really tired. Today I didn't really do much of anything because I couldn't get my head straight to work on my projects. I owe part of that to taking last week off and deflating a lot of the momentum that I had built up, and part of that to just being tired. With this week being a chemo week I'm hoping to build that momentum back up so I'm not completely flailing this week.
  • I mentioned that I gave myself permission to slack off last week. I don't regret it much though as I needed a bit of break, but I'm still a bit disappointed that it's taken me a bit to get back into the swing of things. I need to remember that productivity isn't a switch that I can just turn off and on and expect full intensity.
  • Tomorrow I have an appointment to get my blood drawn and visit with Dr. Jaiyesimi. Also will hopefully be getting my shot of Epoetin alfa (nee: Procrit). I'll also need to talk to him about my blood pressure since it seems the Losartan isn't bringing things down like we thought it would. Might need to see a cardiologist, though I'm hoping I can get this to go down with exercise. Trouble is finding the energy to want to exercise. I need to work on this habit.

More as I know it.
