Subject: RE: LilyFestre - Cancer-Seeking Chemo Is on Target!
Day 6 Post Chemo. I didn't sleep for beans last night even with the Tylenol with Codeine that they gave me. Tylenol never seems to do anything for me. I'll be calling the Dr. to get something different and also to see if heartburn is a side effect of chemo. I'm thinking it is because they gave me Previcet (?) by IV last time. I've had heartburn maybe 2 other times in my life....all I can say is YOUCH.

Overall, I'm feeling pretty good today. It's supposed to be icy out later so I'm going to the grocery store for a few things and then home. Tomorrow is Day 7 which is when my white blood cell count is predicted to drop drastically so I'll spend today cleaning around the house, cloroxing door knobs and such, washing our bedding and just getting things ready for me to flop on our bed for a few days....all as clean as I can get it. I won't be going out on Days 7 -10 for anything.

Gotta get going. Where is that Tums!?!?!? ARG.
