I gave myself a day off.
I sat at home and refused to let myself leave for any reason. I read. I watched tv. I worked on finishing a cross-stitch I have been doing for a while now. I just took a breather.
Yeah, my skin is a little worse today as expected. Especially around my neck it is peeling bad and it is starting to pull tight in places. I can’t seem to find a comfortable way to rest my neck.
But nothing unexpected, and I can tell I will be going to bed early tonight.
I did do a small portion of the newest part of my solo in my kitchen waiting for my supper to cook. Old habits die hard I guess 🙂
I will be back at it again tomorrow with a lesson and I hope a little bit of practice, and I am optimistic tonight will be some restful sleep.
I see the dentist on Thursday, and I have to say I am worried. You are not allowed to see the dentist or even floss while on chemo because of the risk of infection and I decided to wait until after radiation to set up my annual appointment. Up until now, I have had almost perfect teeth and been really lucky. I don’t think that luck is going to hold out on Thursday. I am pretty sure that the chemo has caused some damage to my teeth as they feel pretty sensitive. On top of the chemo, I spent almost 5 months drinking water mixed with lemon juice because I couldn’t tolerate drinking plain water. The acid from the lemon juice probably didn’t help.
But I will see how things go on Thursday.
For now, it’s still my day off.
