Day 10 after my chemotherapy. I feel almost back to normal today. Yes, I still have mild nausea, but not that noticeable. In fact, I thought I needed to start some exercises. My husband is a dedicated runner, but I was not sure if running was my best exercise today. I asked him to tune up my bicycle. Bending over to reach ground makes me nauseated, I could not do it myself. I went for a bike riding while he goes out for running. I had to stop occasionally when I felt nauseous, but otherwise, I felt good about getting some exercise done. We were out for over 1 hour.
My appetite came back as well as my taste buds. I quickly started putting some weight now. Wow, now it is the time to focus on what I eat, finally. I don’t get hungry today, I believe because I eat small amount more frequently. I felt lack of vegetables in my diet for the last 10 days, I craved for vegetables. My friend brought me my favorite carrot dressing with ginger and honey. I am set for vegetables!
When I was on a bike, we passed by a store that sells felafels. I started to explain how to make felafels to my husband as I was riding the bike. I was excited to find out that “I am thinking about food!” I greeted myself “Welcome back, Yoko!”[physically]: Almost back to normal (Oh, thank you!). I felt some nausea from time to time. When I am destructed, I forget about it. A pimple popped out, but nothing noticeable happened for now. I was afraid that being lower white blood counts could cause some situation, not today. I don’t notice sore mouth today. [emotionally]: As I felt normal and did some exercise, I felt great and thankful.
