The Stacey Report

May 25, 2006: This Just In…

Posted in Uncategorized by ohthatdeb on May 25, 2006

I’ve received an actual report from Stacey for The Stacey Report, and things in general are better. I’m going to reveal myself to be the lazy slob I really am and cut n’ paste her e-mail (with appropriate amendments, of course — she’s such a potty mouth!)

Here ’tis:

1. Went to the doctor yesterday for a checkup. Still anemic, duh. She thinks the lump is even smaller and we agreed that the swelling in the breast (called “peau d’orange“) has gone down. She’s very impressed and happy with the progress so far. She also said that all symptoms I’ve been experiencing are completely normal.

2. Total weight loss: 22 pounds. She’s not worried yet. Says that people tend to gain since they graze to avoid nausea (I guess eating a little bit every two hours or so helps with that, didn’t affect me that way!). I’m hoping I can keep the loss! If I could lose at this rate for the next 15 weeks I’d be positively svelt!

3. On Vyto’s suggestion I had a baked potato last night. Loaded it up with butter and sour cream since I figure I’m not much worried about calories right now. It was great! However, then I tried to take a pill and ended up thowing up a portion of it. Boo!

4. Much more energy. Not sleepy when driving (yes, that’s a bad thing, I know). Stayed up to midnight last night (well, did have a 45 min nap around 5ish). Able to stay awake at desk. Sure that will all go to hell next week after the next treatment.

5. Able to eat more, though still get full feelings after just a little bit (common). Feeling like eating more types of food, but still not back to normal.

6. Still with the hypersensitive gag reflex. Pills almost always make me gag.

Think that’s about it!

So, there you have it, good news all around. Now we just have to figure out how to get pills in through the Mediport…
