Topic: Garage sale shopping after chemo today
Chemo today went better do to the two nurses working together to access my port. None of the trauma of last week. One pressed on my skin to hold the port in an upright position while the other one pushed in the needle ....and it worked...and was the least painful of all the previous attempts since April to access this darned thing. It was the short chemo day, just a steroid and Gemcitibine.....and on the way home, we stopped for a burger and fries.....only thing that sounded good.....and then the car magically turned down a street with a garage sale. It was billed as "Having no more babies sale." Whoohoo!!! My friend , who had taken me to chemo, let me go to the sale and I picked up about 25 pieces of quality clothes for my little grandson for only $33.00. It was all name brand stuff.....Gymboree, Carters, Children's Place......nice haul. I hadn't gotten to do something like that for quite a while, so it was good therapy at the time, though very hot and humid. There's nothing I like more than buying some things for that little grandson, Robert. He turns 3 years old on June 24th.....let the spoiling begin. )))
The steroid I got during chemo gave me some issues this afternoon......very sleepy and some gastro type problems. Later this evening, that settled down and my stomach/chest feels better again. I'm not very tired.....again...probably the steroids...but will try to go to sleep in a little while. I am now starting finally to yawn.
