That’s what I felt like — the star running back, having gained 150 yards in the first half, so dehydrated I needed an IV. That’s what I got today, when I went to see the doc. He got all over me about drinking more fluids, and eating more calories…I dipped down to 199, and my BP was 89/63. After the IV, it was a respectable 110/81.
This has been the worst week of all. Big pain from swallowing anything at all. Liquid, solid, hot, cold, doesn’t matter. Though cold is worse. My entire rib cage feels on fire when I swallow. So, doctor says, MORE PAIN PILLS! I hate that, he looked at me like I was crazy when I told him I wasn’t full-timing them, but I hate being dehydrated, too. No, I don’t need pot, so all you pot-heads step off, quit telling me to go get some weed.
No more chemo for a month or more, and only three more radiation treatments. I’m almost done with Round 1, or the first quarter, or the front nine, or whatever you want to call this. I’ll be Churchillian, and say, “…the end of the beginning.”
