Day 2 after chemoday my body starts to ache. Day 3 it's a little worse( I really got sick Friday, at work.). But the BIG achy day is the the fourth day after chemoday. The way my schedule is set up, if I have chemo on  Tuesday, I going to be a mess on Saturday. Boy did  my legs hurt, ankles and knees.  Each  session the pain or reactions are different. My feet hurt and are numb. My hands are numb. Numbness in my hands I have been dealing with since the first chemo session. It just seems the the reaction is a little worse each time. I not complaining mind you (yes I am!), but this is annoying. The pain killers don't seem to be working and the decadron that my doctor has me taken for 3 days after chemo does not help the pain. My doctor stated that it was stronger them ibuprofen, but I'm still in pain.

Today is day five and the pain is less. I do expect to be much better tomorrow (day six).
 Mashallah, it could be worse. I do know how my body is going to reaction to the chemo; I'm still able to go to work. I'm just ready for the chemodays to be over. I have two more to go.

Well I'm finding that days after chemodays are always a little different. The first after chemoday #4, I woke up feeling fine. I was a little suspicion of how I felt. I'm not usually sick or anything the day after chemo, but I don't feel the way I did this morning. Now I'm not complaining or anything, (all praises due to Allah) but the last three chemodays, the next day I never  felt this good. Ususally my stomach is upset when I wake up in the morning. Not this morning. Hummm, suspicion!!!! Well guess what, my stomach is upset now. It's been upset since around 3pm. Hummmm. My doctor has given me medication that is suppose to prevent upset stomach and pain. I usually take it twice a day for three days. I took one this morning, like I ususally do; Wwwhy is my stomach upset now? Oh well! I'll get through this.

Well , today was Chemoday #4. I have two chemo sessions to go , and I'll be done (inshallah). So far so good as far as reacting to the chemo drugs. I do have reactions to the chemo.The reactions will run it's course till next wednesday. I'll be fine then.

 I  need to post a picture of my almost no eyebrows self. I should do that before they are completely gone. Every morning I look at myself in the mirror and wonder what's diffent about my face. Hummmm... then I go, Girrrl your eyebrows are almost gone! Mashallah.

When I make Salat, I always pray to Allah that he cures the cancer in me. The other day I realize that what I should be asking for is that Allah keeps me healthy. You know that old quote abour being careful of what you ask for. Allah is most meriful and beneficient, he can cure me of my cancer, but then I could develop a very serious heart problem or something else that would be more deadly then the cancer. Allah is the  God and he knows what's best for me and He knows what I can handle and what I can't. All praises due....
