Feelin' groovy

Well, I'm not really sure what that means, but I seem to feel okay these days. The first treatment of Adriamycin has been tolerable. My new compression sleeve gizmo is working well, although it can be kind of hot to wear. As my friend I points out, it's like wearing a very long oven mitt.

I haven't been sleeping well, even after taking some Ativan at bedtime. It may be that I am too used to the 0.5 mg dose I take for it to be effective. It may be the hot flashes that wake me up. Last night's 3 AM restlessness turned into the dog waking up and deciding to get out of bed, then woofing to be let outdoors. Rik was sound asleep, so I got up and dragged Bobka back to his dog bed. We both slept some more, but I keep awakening with hot flashes. I stayed in bed until past 10 AM this morning.

The good news is that I have a pile of ironing and some silver polishing to do, and I have enough energy to do both tasks.

More chemo tomorrow.

    Trust the next chemo session goes as well as can be.
