I was a bit frustrated by the doctor’s appointment this morning. I was told that there was really nothing that they could do to help with the fevers and cough. I just have to manage and fight. He said that the cough could be irritation from the tumors making me cough – not too much I can do about that, eh? I don’t have any fluid in my lungs, so that is good, but this cough is keeping us up at night and wearing me down, down, down.
My blood tests showed that I am a little anemic, so I will be having shots to boost my red blood cells weekly beginning next week. Hopefully it will give me more energy. I’ve never had one of these shots, so I am a little afraid. I’m set to have them for five weeks and then check it again. Before the five weeks is up, I’ll also be having a CT scan. It is not set up yet, but will be soon – I’ll let you know!
I also have not had much of an appetite – lost 7 pounds – so the doctor prescribed Megestrol Acetate to stimulate my appetite. I hope that by eating more, I’ll have more energy. It is supposed to be Lemon-Lime flavor, so hopefully it’ll go down smoothly. We’ll find out tomorrow!
Please pray for rest and sleep. Sol and I both need sleep. Kai is doing awesome! He continues to go in the potty and sleep through the night! Martha (Sol’s step-mom) is coming tomorrow. She said she woke up this morning and just needed to be here. So here she comes.
I’m praying I wake up tomorrow with NO cough!!! It can happen!
