SUSAN’S JOURNEY WITH MYELOMA 2007-01-12 17:50:00

HI EVERYONE,

ITS ME —I FIND THAT THE MORNINGS ARE THE WORSE FOR ME. I GOT UP FEELING PRETTY BAD THIS MORNING. I EAT A BLUEBERRY MUFFIN AND DRANK SOME GATORADE AND YOU GUESSED IT THEY CAME RIGHT BACK UP. I FEEL SOMEWHAT SHAKY. I WENT TO CLINIC AND GOT SOME IV FLUIDS AND SOME NAUSEA MEDICINE THRU THE IV I THINK THEY CALL IT ANZEMET OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT I ALSO GOT IV STEROIDS TO HELP WITH NAUSEA. I ALSO GOT IV BENEDRYL. I SEE THE DOCTOR PRETTY MUCH EVERY DAY AND HE SAYS IT WILL GET BETTER. I CAN’T WAIT TILL THE DAY I CAN SAY YOU’RE RIGHT IT GOT BETTER BECAUSE RIGHT NOW I CAN ONLY SEE ABOUT 1/4 OF AN EYEBALL TO THE LIGHT. THE DOC ALSO SAY I MAY BE ABLE TO GET THE CATHETER OUT SOMETIME NEXT WEEK YEAHHHHH. WELL I CAN SOME WHAT EAT BUT MY TASTE BUDS ARE NOT BACK YET THE DOC SAYS MAYBE ANOTHER 2 WEEKS FOR THAT. I FIND THAT SMELLS BOTHER ME ALOT EVEN THE SMELL OF MY OWN HOUSE AND MY LITTLE DOG I CAN’T WAIT TILL THAT GOES AWAY. WELL THATS ABOUT ALL TO REPORT FOR NOW. HI AUNT BLANCHE–WISH ME LUCK.
