First Chemo - Day Six

If it isn't one thing, it's another. Isn't that always the way?

Had another wonderful shoulder massage last night, and slept great. Trying a little light shoulder exercising too, in hopes of chasing the whatevers out of my muscles so they'll quit aching. They feel a whole lot better today!

The magic miracle mouthwash seems to work too, and quickly. The sores on my tongue are greatly reduced already and less painful. Yea!

But, as my Silver Fox reminds me, Yin and Yang, every good means a bad somewhere. Now I have the runs. Don't know if it's from the mouthwash (and yes, I do spit it out, as instructed ...), but it started shortly after the first swish. But all that crap (so to speak) that I've been reading for the last few months says diarrhea is one of the possible side effects of chemo. Goody!

And, since there's nothing else going on in my poor body, I have now developed a UTI - all us older broads know what that means. A urinary tract infection. Might as well have all the out-ports complaining about something.

My body is falling apart on me, and I'm getting cranky about it! Remind me again why I'm doing this???
