On Beyond Cancer

My life with metastatic breast cancer

2nd day July 3, 2013

Filed under: Uncategorized — onbeyondcancer @ 4:23 pm

Last night the side effects of Halaven kicked in.  I had body aches everywhere like when you have the flu or get in a bar fight (at least that’s what I think a bar fight would feel like).  I was in bed before 10pm, and using a heating pad despite the heat.  I took my temperature before bed and again in the morning and didn’t have a fever.  I slept 10 hours and woke up to the sound of the boys playing together nicely and singing.  I called the doctor this morning and she recommended I take a Naproxen (basically high dose Advil) and get some rest.  I am feeling better now and just taking it easy.

    I think in your subconscious, you were just waiting for the boys to play nicely before you woke up. =)

    So sorry to hear this. Rest as much as you can. Keeping you in my prayers.

    You hang in there, Karissa, and know that we are thinking of you and sending hugs. I hope you all can spend at least one relaxing day poolside at mom and dad’s very soon. We need to try to get up there with you all soon, too:) Happy Fourth of July!, With much love, Jennifer & Family

  4. the ibprophon is working. (I personally think ibprophin is a miracle drug, it helps all my aches and pains).

    Hope that you feel better/get used to the side effects soon. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help!
