Two Hats and a Heating Pad

Thanks to the prayers of many – NO headaches!  God is so good and I am praising Him il_430xn_39214661for this small victory in my battle!  Since my chemo therapy on Wednesday I have had nights filled with nausea and have slept a lot of them on the couch, tossing and taking medicine waiting for it to pass.  No throwing up, just a nagging, persistent nauseousness.  My toes have neuropathy in them when I lay down so I have them wrapped in a hot heating pad , trying to get circulation flowing.  They ache at times and feel like frost bite, tingly and cold.  I have two hats covering my very cold bare head.  Who knew that hair was such an insulator?   My stubble, or “head whiskers” litter the floor and sinks if I don’t cover up…it is very patchy and thin now.   My mouth feels like a thin layer of slime, and taste is hard to find.   This is perhaps the most annoying side effect considering I really do love to eat!  My ears keep plugging with fluid making my equilibrium a bit shaky so I am spending most of the day on the couch.   The Lord is faithful to continue providing all I need, and friends are so gracious to bring meals prepared with love going on 3 months now!  I am blessed!
