Good days, so far. The oxycodone has been doing the trick in keeping my pain away, which is a huge relief. I had my Mirena placed today--ladies, if you are thinking about doing this, please hear me out. It is painful. Maybe not for everyone, but it was for me. Since I haven't had a kid, it was a little more painful than it would have been if I had had a kid. Your uterus realizes shortly afterwards that there is something in there that doesn't belong and tries to make it leave (read: CRAMPS!!!). I'm not as crampy as I was right after it was done, but I'm still pretty uncomfortable. Fortunately, these side effects are temporary and will be well worth it when I don't have to give a second thought to birth control anymore!
Tomorrow is chemo round #2, treatment #1. We will see what kind of weird blood values I have tomorrow. I am going to cut this short so I can take care of my pooches and hit the sack early tonight. I've been pretty tired the last couple of days. If I sit in one place for more than a few minutes, I tend to nod off. Hopefully I can sleep enough tonight so that doesn't happen tomorrow.
I will update everyone tomorrow! Have a good night, all!!
