Round number four of chemotherapy hasn’t been too bad after those first few days. In fact, I’ve been feeling pretty good this week. But I am currently so tired that I want to just fall over. The only reason I am still up this evening is that we just arrived home and the dogs need “unwind” time before we go to bed.
I’ve been working full days this week. It’s actually been a good week at work. In fact, I haven’t felt this good about a week of work since early fall before the diagnosis. In addition to work this week, I’ve had things to do each evening. But one more day and the weekend is here. And I will sleep like Rip Van Winkle.
On Tuesday night of this week we went by the Hickory Wine Shoppe. Downtown businesses in Hickory have been donating 10% of a day’s proceeds to a charity of their choice. The wine shop selected the Leukemia and Lymphoma society. It warmed my heart that they chose that as their charity. We had to go by to support them. Plus I needed to show Alan the new wig – he gave it two thumbs up!
Tonight was a wonderful evening. We were interviewing a candidate for a position at work and we went out for dinner after the interview. The food was amazing as was the company. Once I got in the car to come home, I immediately pulled off the wig. After 14 hours of having it on, I needed to get it off! My head needed to breathe desperately. Thank goodness it was dark.
Tomorrow morning I have to go in for my weekly blood work and then have a day filled with conference calls and meetings. This week’s shout-out goes to my co-worker Holly who has taken on a massive amount of work and work-related travel to make sure things at work are getting covered. I am glad she has a vacation coming up soon – she totally deserves some R&R.
I cannot say this with enough emphasis: TGIF (almost!)
