I’ve had a couple not so great days. Saturday was actually fine…we went to the Stanford women’s basketball game and the Sharks game. In between we ran a few errands and had dinner at one of my new favorite joints, The Habit Burger. Everything was fine…until Sunday afternoon. I was enjoying the Super Bowl when one of the effects of Perjeta hit me full force. Here I was all prepared for constipation from Taxotere, when I got the opposite. I got a hold of Velia the nurse right at 8:30 am, and she called in a prescription for Lomotil. Ted brought it to me around noon, and around midnight things finally got better. In the meantime I had a bout of nausea, felt like I was running a fever (I wasn’t) and just all round felt like crap.
I was able to sleep for a 4 hour stretch last night, which is good because I needed sleep. When I woke up in the morning, I felt like I was going to pass out – no doubt from the lack of food and drink from the day before. Thank goodness for Gatorade G2…and a few more hours of sleep. I’ve eaten more today, and generally feel better. Definitely not 100%, but better. I still feel like I’ve got a fever (I still don’t), and just feel odd, kind of off. I guess now I know what to expect on Day 4 – and to take Lomotil as soon as possible. In the meantime I hope I continue to feel better.
Lassen has been my bed buddy – I think he likes the electric blanket. Kea has been the cutest – traipsing into the bathroom with me every time, with a concerned look on his face, jumping onto my lap. He didn’t get much sleep either, poor kitty. Let’s hope things are better soon.
