Low Level Side Effects Over the Weekend

I was hit with a cold over the weekend. So were Daniela and so was Beau. No fun. It's a little stressful knowing that chemotherapy can make a cold worse, but I'm getting plenty of rest, Vitamin C and Olive Leaf Extract [I highly recommend Olive Leaf Extract] and within the last few hours, I feel like I'm coming out of it. I hope Daniela and Beau wake up feeling better.

I had surprisingly few side effects following this last chemotherapy treatment I had on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. I even went to the Ithaca Farmers Market on Saturday and felt relatively good. I guess what matters most is that I didn't feel dizzy or nauseas and that was quite nice. I also took an antacid along with an anti-hiccuping prescription on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Combined they did the trick and the anti-hiccup med is also prescribed as an anti-nausea med. So, overall everything worked out and I feel relatively well. We'll see. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Oh. And in other news...the RED SOX are going to the Pennant!!!!
