I got up early today and did my kickboxing workout…took a cold shower because I could not stop sweating….and then headed to the cancer center for my oncology appointment, blood work, and chemo treatment. I also got my second dose of IV Zometa….not a chemo drug, but a drug that helps seal off and strengthen my bones so I don’t get more bone mets (I have one in my L2 area). So I got the works today and was there from 0845 to 1400, so a little over 5 hours. I am including my kickboxing photo from this morning and my chemo photo (which my awesome oncology nurse, Nora, has taken for me for the last 5 times since Rich can’t be with me). The green bag has ice in it. I ice my hands and feet for the hour that the Doxil is being infused to hopefully stave off some of the hand/foot syndrome I have. I went on a walk this evening with Tallinn, Rich and Lily. I was cool and breezy….very nice. I hope that holds true for tomorrow morning. I then went grocery shopping later this evening and it was still pretty empty. Omaha is legally requiring masks in public buildings and places you can’t properly social distance starting Monday. A majority of folks have already been doing that. Anyhow, got almost 3 miles in today walking. Not bad for a chemo day. But I am pooped. Heading to bed with the hopes that reading a book will allow me to sleep and not let the IV steroids I had today keep me up most of the night. G’night peeps!
