A day later than usual

My usual Monday chemo light appointment got postponed until today.

I just got up from a nap and feel a bit less tired than I did when I got home. I found out what is knocking me out is a dose of Benadryl. It must be a large dose or maybe as one of the nurses said, I'm a cheap drunk.

And I thought it was the
chemo light. Silly me.

Dang, it's raining now and we were thinking of going to a free outdoor concert tonight. I figured I have enough energy to sit there and listen.
I guess it will be postponed until tomorrow.

And so my not-too-scintillating online journal of my cancer journey continues...

Oooh, a post where you got to use the word "scintilating"! I hope you do get to go to the concert. The free concerts on the lake is one of the things I miss most about my previous hometown.

In my early twenties I use to have to go the the allergist's several times a month for a Benadryl shot... before it was available over the counter. I have taken antihistamines for so long that they do not make me drowsy or bother me in the least.

Hope you don't feel too washed out this round. big hugs xoxo

Benadryl really kicks my butt and knocks me right out so I'm not surprised it has been making you tired. I guess better it than the chemo, huh?

A free concert where one could just sit and relax and listen sounds downright lovely to me! Norwich, of course, doesn't have such things. Meh.
