3rd day not as fun!

The third night of chemo was a little harder. The nausea meds didn't work as well but still no vomiting, thank god. They are pumping me with so many fluids that I have gained 13 pounds of water in 3 days. That is not feeling the best but they started me on a water pill so I will be peeing even more.The extra weight is hurting my joints and everything so I am finally excepting the pain pills. I don't know why I said no before. My wonderful parents are stopping by today, so that wull make me very happy. The staff is so wonderful here and that helps alot. Sorry if I am rambaling I have had a lack of sleep latlely!

Love you all!

You poor thing! You are handling it so well, I am sure. Just think, the sooner you feel bad the sooner you will start to feel better! I hope the next few days are easier!

Hi Kathy,
You are an inspiration to us all. Like mother, like daughter. You hang in there, girl. There is a light at the end of the tunnel. Soon you'll be doing the Conga line with me at Amanda's wedding! We all want to donate platelets. Tell us how and we're there. Hugs and kisses to you, Tim and Ryan.

Can I e-mail you my platelets? I have a bunch left over from May also that I can e-mail over if you come up short.
