Four years ago today marked a milestone as noted in my journal from 8.22.05.
Home. They let me go last night. It’s over. Treatment is finished. TBTG. They took the 5FU IV out at 8:45 after 128 consecutive hours. No wonder I feel like c _ _ p. Sores on the inside and outside of my mouth. Red inflamed skin in the cheeks and neck area. Mucous galore. Nausea. Some vomiting. I can hardly talk. I told Nancy yesterday AM, “It stinks being me today.” But by God’s grace we got through. Hopefully from here on in things can only get better. I wonder how long it will take to recover.
Fortunately I didn’t really know, or I might have despaired.
