So Tired…

So…Chemo And Neulasta within two days.  I am exhausted.  Nothing hurts yet but it’s hard to explain how sluggish and achy my entire body feels.  Today is a slow moving day.  Turtle slow…snail slow…syrupy molasses slow.  Sigh!  I was feeling so good with just chemo…it’s Neulasta that makes everything ache.

I am reading this but it’s hard to focus for long stretches of time.  So I am reading in short spurts.  It’s good but it has a lot of sadness in it.  Probably not the best book for the way I am feeling today.  It’s the Neulasta Effect…it doesn’t last but when it hits you know it.  Hopefully in a day or two I will be back to whatever my normal is.  Today is just not a good mood day.  This book is about two policemen.  They buy houses in a development about an hour away from their jobs in NYC.  One wife is so excited to have a new friend next door but the woman who moves in is strange, mean, aloof, weird.  They each have a child in the same grade who love hanging out together…and then a troubling incident and that’s as far as I got.  But I can’t put it down.  It’s not even what I wanted to read…but I just sort of picked it up and once I started it was too interesting to stop.

So…this weekend will be quiet…the kitties seem to sense when I am not feeling well and stay close and calm.  They comfort me.

See you Monday with more thoughts about books…

Hugs…

    Sorry, you are not feeling well. You need to pay attention to your body and rest. You can catch up on your reading when you feel better!!! Take care.

    Oh, yes, you need some good books, not books that make you feel sad. I love reading suspense thrillers…or even books in a series like the Robyn Carr books. I’m enjoying The Best of Us…

    Have a calm and enjoyable weekend!

    I sorry today was uncomfortable for you physically. I think you’re handling it like a champ. You are brave to be open about everything and it is a privilege to be here alongside of you while you go through this. Hugs, my dear friend.

    So very sorry to learn of your illness. My younger daughter has been battling breast cancer for over a year now. She still faces more surgery for reconstruction, etc. I wish you strength and courage as you face this battle. My prayer is that you will have a full recovery and a wonderful life ahead. All best,
    –Michael
