Sept 27 Sleeping all day long

I think the chemo acted a little different this time. I've been tired, and sleeping most of the last two days. I've definitely been in bed most of the time, and not wanting to get up and out into the living room.
So I've been reading a little bit again, and I paid a bill, after talking to the billing person. The bill was over $3000, and I called to see how much I really owed, and come to find out - it needed to be resubmitted. Who knew?
All the cancer books keep telling me to keep all the bills and appointments and medication names and everything together and check them all later and blah blah, and you all know how much I love doing paperwork. Sooooo....
I guess I need a system, and I sort of have one. Put the bills here. If they send you a second one, maybe see if you need to pay it. Just kidding!
I need a better system!
I hate being a responsible adult, sometimes.
I'm tired, having hot flashes, and 'headachey'. But I shouldn't and won't complain, because I asked for this, yes???
I can feel those cancer germs going bye-bye every second of the day.
My brother-in-law 'Uncle Silly Terry' (Sara's name for him) asked me today what color my hair was right now. I told him "Kind of flesh colored." No more hair has fallen out, but what is left is very blonde. Still kind of cute. In a weird kind of way. My scalp doesn't seem to like it much - very bumpy and broken out and looks awful. I'm trying to keep my hands off of the scalp, especially after I've been reading the newspaper, or doing a crossword puzzle, but it feels so interesting to touch that stubby little growth!
I am doing better about it, though, Sally.
Must. Go. To. Bed. It's very late for me these days. My love you all,
from Tired and Getting Better Patty : )

Glad to hear you're listening and getting some rest. Your body needs to concentrate ALL it's energy on healing. Hang in there and keep up to good spirits. Know that thoughts and prayers are always with you.
