Day +3641: It comes and goes in waves…

“It always does, always does
We watch as our young hearts fade
Into the flood, into the flood…

11/29/2020: Vidaza cycle 2 (or 23), day 4 of 5. This treatment week has been difficult, nothing specific or dramatic but a general feeling of fatigue and physical unwellness. This, in turn, has affected my mood.

However, Dr. B says I’m doing well, and I trust him. My blood counts dropped a little more since last month but that’s to be expected until the chemo starts working, hopefully by next month. My lungs sound clear, and my oxygen levels are good. No weight loss, bruising, or mouth sores. Michael takes great care of me.

With my white counts on the low end and Covid on the upswing, we’re keeping to ourselves for the holidays. Wishing all of you a safe and healthy Thanksgiving! Please be careful. Let’s all look forward to better times ahead.

xoxo,
Karen

  1. How can your mood not follow your feelings of physical unwellness? Happy to hear the doc thinks you are doing well and you trust her or him. A quiet holiday here as well to stop the spread.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and Michael and looking forward to better times ahead!

    Lots of love,
    Debbie
