This past friday the hospital called Victor to tell us that they found an infection in my urine. It is an urinary tract infection, and Victor picked up the medication right away. I haven’t had a fever since Saturday, so the antibiotics seem to be working.
Today I felt much better and I haven’t had to take an afternoon nap for two days. I feel like I have energy again! Still, I will try to conserve my energy as much as possible and get as much rest as I can.
This morning Victor took me to the hospital to get my blood taken. I checked with the Radiology department if it was alright to do it today instead of tomorrow, since it will save me time, and it was no problem.
Tomorrow I have to drink a liter of water mixed with a vial with JOXITALAMINEZUUR an hour and a half before the scan. I cannot find the translation of this acid anywhere, but it is used as a contrast fluid for the CT scan. Last time I didn’t get this but some other fluid via an IV. Maybe they’ll give that to me as well.
I had three visitors today, so that kept my mind off the scan tomorrow. Wednesday is the last chemo of this 9-week period. And Thursday we’ll get the results. I’m very anxious (what Marc calls scanxiety – the nervousness of waiting for scan results). It really helps me to know all of you are wishing the best for me, praying for me and thinking of me. Thanks so much for all your support!
