I’m having sneezing fits. What’s good about it is that since I’m not sick and I’m not spreading anything I don’t feel compelled to have subdued, ladylike sneezes. I don’t think it’s good for your brain to bottle those up. The downside is I also have diarrhea and there are certain unwelcome pressure changes, also unladylike, that accompany the sneezes. Conversations with customers sometimes end abruptly. So I have that to contend with today.
I had my first small treatment yesterday with just the Herceptin. Herceptin sounds super-scary but it’s really not that bad. Don’t kill yourself worrying about it if you ever have to get it. It isn’t chemo. It makes me really hungry and then kind of tired. Later on I was really crampy but I think that was because I ate too much stew and gummy bears. The lady who administers my drugs told me I might be loosing the hair inside my nose and that’s hows come the sneezing. That’s an interesting tidbit. The human body really is like a box of chocolates.
I went and got what promises to be an extremely flammable wig from UW hospital. They have them there for free. I still have head hair, but probably not for the long. Wheee. Right now I’m kind of bummed that my Neutrophils are at 588 (it’s a blood thing), which isn’t so hot cause below 500 gives you a high risk of infection from pretty much anything. So I’m supposed to be very careful to not eat raw food or injure myself. That probably includes not setting my wig on fire. So I don’t know what to do with myself-danger is everywhere. Right now I am microwaving soup that you drink out of a little can. Seems safe enough but you should see the pile of shit I have to crawl over to get to the microwave. Wish me luck.
