Changed My Mind

Remember how I bragged that Sunday was my new favorite day?

Well, I lied! Yesterday was awful. I mean AWFUL!

On Friday they switched my nausea medicine because we thought that was the reason my arms and legs were so achy. That wasn't the reason. They still ached AND I was sick all weekend.

I have nausea pills to take, which I took all weekend, but those just make me want to sleep. So, instead of being able to play with my little ones, I was in bed most of the weekend.

I feel so bad that my husband has had to take on so much. Not only is he playing the role of daddy, but mommy too. I hope he realizes how much I appreciate everything that he has been doing. I have not been an easy person to live with. Thank you honey for everything. Some day I will make this up to you. Some day.

DAMN cancer! You have every right to change your mind, be ticked off, and if you body needs to...rest!

Praying you have a better week!

Deborah said...

Well, I'm very bummed for you - not being able to play with your babies and have a normal week-end. And on top of that to be so sick. That just sucks!

I hope this week is much better for you and that next week-end you're able to make up for all you've missed.

Oh that is rough and awful and so not fair for you! Stupid cancer!
What a wonderful hubby you have!! I am sure he is more than happy to help so you can get all better!!

Kerry said...

You are a very lucky woman to have such a wonderful husband by your side. I am so sorry you felt so crummy, but you are almost done, light at the end of the tunnel, then life can get back to normal.

Shannon said...

Your hubby wouldn't have it any other way, I'm sure. Your his top priority and he is doing a great job taking care of you, and everything else. I'm so sorry you had such a nasty weekend, buddy, that really sucks and I wish there was something I could do to make all that horrible pain go away. Keep on hangin' in there!

Susan said...

I am so sorry to hear that. I can't imagine how hard it is not to be able to do the things you are used to doing, especially play with your kids.
I hope that you will have a better week and weekend. Just remember that you are in the second half of the treatments and you have a lot of people pulling and praying for you.

Christy said...

That is awful. I am keeping my fingers crossed for next Sunday!

Cancer is so stupid. I am sure your husband loves to take care of you--don't worry about it ;)

Wendi said...

So sorry your week and weekend have been so rotten.
That must mean that next weekend will be GREAT!
Here's hoping.
I am sure your husband does not mind picking up the slack until you are better.
I am sure he just wants you well.
Hang in there girl!
((hugs))

Just had to ring in here. Came over from Lifelong Playdate. I wanted to wish you all the best and to tell you to hang in there. You're one brave, strong, and amazing woman and mom. So young too. Side note: I take a strain of interferon (beta-1a) for my MS. And even what I'm sure is a very small doseage to what you are doing weekly, it still messes with me. I finally switched my injections to the morning to minimize the aches. I'm keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. Kick cancer's ass so you can go play with those adorable kids of yours!

I'd like to send you a book, but I don't know how to do that....I'm new at blogging, still figuring it out. Do you have a PO Box, or do you feel comfortable with me mailing it to you?? I work at our church's bookstore and I have an awesome book that I want to bless you with.
I know you can beat this cancer-you are going to live a long life with your family!! Love, Robin

Kristen said...

Hang in there Heather! And know that your husband would rather help do EVERYTHING, than not have you around. I'm sure that when you put it into perspective, he is perfectly happy to do whatever and whenever.

Hoping that they get your meds figured out.

Wendy said...

I am sure that he is so glad that you are going to be ok that he is happy to help you in any way. Just brush off that guilt and get through this! Remember you are now officially halfway there!

Dana said...

My goodness, you just can't catch a break. I hope you know that there is no way you should be expected to carry even half a load of mommy work when you're undergoing such a crappy treatment.
I hope the next couple of weeks go more quickly for you.

amanda said...

sorry buddy.

if it makes you feel any better i don't really like sunday either :)

hugs and prayers.

Chelle said...

Oh, sweetie, I am sorry. So so sorry.
I hope this is a better week for you. And I know your honey is not minding helping you. He loves you. Unconditionally.
Sending you (((hugs)))

Jen said...

All you owe your husband is for you to get better. I'm quite sure he is not keeping score for having to take on more work. That is what he is there for--to be your other half, to support you and to take care of the stuff that you just aren't able to do right now. In sickness and in health, right?

Hope you feel better soon!
