Anyone Have A Barf Bag? It's Going To Be A Long Flight!

Please, everyone, take a second to send some good thoughts to my Grandpa (my mom's dad). He had to be rushed to the hospital in an ambulance yesterday due to what turned out to be a TIA (transient ischemic attack). It's like a mini-stroke. He has had a few of these already, and I worry about him a lot. He seems to be doing okay and it sounds like he will probably get to go home tomorrow. Get better, Grandpa. I can't wait to see you again.

I am not feeling well today :(

The pain meds are making me sick. Although they make my pain DISAPPEAR and I feel like I could start training for a marathon, I have been vomiting all weekend. Yeah, you know you wanted to hear that...I promise I won't tell you what it looked like ;) I have been nauseated all week, but the other stuff started Friday. I actually woke up out of a dead sleep to be sick last night. I took some Zofran this morning that I have left over from my chemo stash just so I could get to work today. It helped for a little while, but I ended up getting sick twice at work. I plan on calling Dr. Tallman tomorrow morning to see what he thinks. I definitely don't want to stop taking this stuff since it has basically changed my life for the time being. I will happily skip off, holding hands with nausea if it means I can be relatively pain free. But thanks. I like my breakfast to stay where I put it. I also have a migraine that has been coming and going since yesterday morning. Boo.

Britt--I'm glad we could share this nauseating experience! :)

I hope everyone is thinking turkey. Or tofurkey. I will be working this Thanksgiving (far cry from where I was last year!!!), but on Saturday Ted and I are going to have dinner with his parents.

Off to studying in bed I go.
