Day +4

Today did not start too well. Thanks to chemo and girly problems I probably slept about 1 hour total last night. I woke up this morning and my temp was near 100, my heart rate was spiking to 140 everytime I stood up. My weight dropped like 3 pounds overnight. My nurse paged dr Burt and he said it sounded like I just needed fluids (not gonna lie I haven’t been drinking much at all since the foley came out). They will start a bag of saline over 4 hours while my antibiotics run this afternoon- and I’ve been advised to aim for 8 cups a day. Fun stuff. May need platelettes today but they will recheck my count around 4 to be sure. Kind of discouraged me to be feeling this crummy this far along- but very sure after fluids I will perk right up 🙂 

It’s a bumpy ride but I’m almost there. I was taking selfies again yesterday so it must not be ALL that bad 😉
