Day Four

I've  not been too bad today. Felt sick a few times but managed not to actually be sick which is a good thing.

I noticed after my shower this morning that  the back of my legs really hurts when drying them. I thinks this is due to the radio therapy I had, which can cause skin sensativit. My knuckles on my left hand are also red and sore.

My main issue at the moment is with the amount of urine I'm outputting. I have to keep a measure of how much I drink and how much I pee. I have to wee in a jug every time I go so that I can measure it. At the moment though I'm not weeing much! Which is a bit of concern. I'm trying to drink as much as I canbutwithmytastes changing it is quite difficult. I've gone off coffee and tea although I still try to drink a cup now and then. Water tastes yucky unless very cold. I'm drinking as many cartons of juice I can as well.

I'm on a drip of saline at the moment to get some fluids in me so I dont dehydrate but more importantly keep my liver and kidneys working. I just dontseem to be producing enough wee though. The doctors have checked me o'er to seeifI have swelling especially water retension in the ankles,but nothing. The gave me water tablets yesterday that worked and I peeing up to 600ml at the moment though at 20:46 from 6:00 I have only peed in total 400ml. My input so far is 1.220ltr + the drip that is going now. So the question is where is it going and why can't I wee? I going to try any again after this blog post.

In general though I'm doing OK but I think the next few days will be rough as my blood have started to drop.

  1. Rah, rah, rah - Sis Boom-Bah! Go little new cells, GO! You have about a week of feeling like the bottom is dropping out, all wobbly and such or so I've heard and then you'll turn the corner and start heading upward with all those new cells multiplying and doing their jobs... intending you are drinking, drinking, drinking, and bless that water for the good it's doing. Hope it doesn't have much chlorine in it as that might slow things down. I'll be doing Reiki again at 6 p.m. my time for you. (I'm GMT -5).

  2. just to let you know a few of the drivers i work with have been asking how you are. Most of them know about you and whats happening. They send best wishes and keep asking for updates.

  3. Hang in there. I went through it 2.5 years ago. It's rough for a while, but you'll get through it too. My prayers are with you. God bless
