Day1-4: After my 5th chemo

Just for a record: Day 1 to 4 after 5th chemo.

[Day 1 after my 5th chemo]  Thurs. Oct 30

A friend visited me to do me a relaxation session.  She gave me some leg exercises, which made me tired afterwords.  I probably need to keep doing it.  I started to think that my weak legs come from lack of exercises.  It was so relaxing that I could almost fall in sleep.  I realize the importance of breathing once again.  I was still being able to talk without getting much nauseous, because of steroid pills I take before, on and after chemotherapy.


[Day 2 after my 5th chemo]  Fri. Oct 31

Lying down in bed most of the time.  My cheeks are red.  My face is a little puffy.  Nausea medicine (morning, afternoon and anti-anxiety and nausea in the evening ).  I helped my family make-up to prepare for the Halloween.


[Day 3 after my 5th chemo]  Sat. Nov 1

Lying down most of the time.  Being bored. I took many short naps.  I did not (want to) talk much.  Nausea medicine (morning, afternoon and anti-anxiety and nausea in the evening ).  I took a long bath, because my foot looked so pale.

一日横になっている。散々携帯ゲームとドラマを見まくる。ほとんど誰とも話さない。昼寝をあちこちで取っていた。朝 夕と吐き気止め薬。夜に抗不安薬を飲む。こういう日は、精神的にかなり落ちる。例えこの治療は一時的のことだとは分かってはいても、つらいものである。

[Day 4 after my 5th chemo]  Sun.  Nov 2 -super windy day-

A friend visited me to watch a comedy movie together.  What a great idea.  What a cancer patient needs is a great way to be destructed.  A cancer battle is a long lasting one, unfortunately.  I need destruction here and there.  When having a friend, I am up more often and I drink more.

Nausea (medication in the morning. )  Lying down for the most of my day.  My eyes twitch all the time.

お友達が、コメディーの映画を一緒に見ようと遊びに来てくれる。すごく良いアイディア!がん患者というのは、何か他ごとに意識を奪われる という時間がとにかく必要である。あいにく、治療は一日二日で終わるものでなく、長い間闘病生活がある。その中の一日でもがん患者を訪ねてくれて、一緒に映画を見てくれるというのは、なんと良いアイディアかしら!お友達が来ていれば、飲まなければいけない水分も 多少多く飲めるものだと私は感じる。
