My Tummy Hurts

A fairly typical Methotrexate Friday. Chemo sickness all day: a combo of bad headaches/migraines, fatigue, low to no energy, body aches and a general feeling of ickiness (a scientific term meaning “crappiness”). On top of that, my abdomen has been hurting a lot in one specific place all day. It’s not where my pancreas is, so I’m not particularly worried. I was also really hot all day, but that could be from the heat in the house.

Mom made a special Shabbos dinner of brisket, a semi-sweet semi-crispy rice dish, green beans in a white sauce (milk?) with crunchy onion on top. It was delicious, but only on the way down.

“Ew gross, why’d he write that?” See, I can read your mind after all. Mind Reider.

I’m not going to post this on Twitter or Facebook because, as I’m on track to posting every day for the next five months, this part of the week isn’t going to change much from week to week. It’ll probably stick to the “methotrexate is kicking my ass from the inside” formula, with an occasional “also this weird other thing hurts.”

And honestly, the entry I wrote earlier today about the Zadroga bill to help dying 9/11 First Responders is much more important to me. So go read that again and call your Republican senators and tell your friends who have Republican senators to do the same thing. Thank you.
