Dave had chemo last week. By Saturday he felt awful. Fatigue and stomach malaise were the biggest issues. He was grumpy and short tempered. This seems to be the day he feels at his absolute worst after infusion. Then each successive day seems to get a little bit better. He starts to feel almost completely back to normal by about Tuesday of the week following treatment.
The Saturdays of the weeks he doesn’t have chemo are not much better. He is anxious and stressed. I can’t begin to imagine how challenging it must be to finally feel better and then have to gear up to do it all again. So we stay busy. We make plans and find things to look forward to. This is our new normal, and we are starting to get the hang of it.
