Size Zero?

Sometimes you're the windshield
Sometimes you're the bug

"The Bug"
Mark Knopfler

For the last two weeks, I have definitely been the bug. The new "everything including the kitchen sink" treatment is kicking my ass. At my oncologist's appointment two weeks ago, 8 September 2009, when I weighed in, I was 146 pounds. Yesterday I was 137. (Clearly I need to eat more lard.)

In addition to having zero energy and being nauseous all of the time, I also managed to have diarrhea and constipation at the same time. I won't go into the details, but it was confusing, weird, and just plain gross.

Dr. G has cut back my chemo drugs by 20% this round, so maybe I won't be the bug this next two weeks. We shall see.
