There are a few moments in life, when you have no choice but to “live in the moment.” Vomitting being one those. I threw up 12 times last weekend, which was a world record for me. My vomit-free streak lasted from November 16, 2013. Like Seinfeld, I do keep track of these things. Still not sure what caused the Linda Blair episode (which was accompanied by a migraine style headache) but I am praying it will not happen again. I’ll get a chance to test it next Thursday when I have my next chemo. Last Saturday seemed to be shaping up like a normal post chemo day….a little tired and a little nauseated. I even took at short walk at 5. At about 730 the headache came on and by midnight, I was revisiting my dinner (In other notes-I no longer like hamburger). This weekend made me realize how fragile our bodies actually are. One nurse said, “We are more delicate than we imagine.” I also found that neither Zofran, Reglan, or Phenergen really work once you really get sick. Nothing does. More importantly, I found out that Nurse Jackie (my nurse Jackie) is there for me 24 hours a day as is my husband, who patted my back and made me feel slightly less horrible. I also learned that when you throw up violently, you get a beautiful petechial rash on your face…..vaguely Howdy Doody looking. If there is a badge to be earned with all of this, I think I earned it this weekend. Still unsure how this weekend fits into the general side effects of chemo category, but I can guarantee you that I was completely in the moment!
