Thanks so much for asking..The day started out ok. I started out doing Aredia..a 2 hour drip. Then on to the Taxotere.
By the way I took the Decadron last night and again this
morning. Then I started Xeloda this morning. I started getting really thirsty and urinating constantly.Seeing that I have Diabetes they took my Sugar level..well it was in "hi Critical "
range which means well over 500...Mine was some where
near 575-600. Well that caused alot of comotion in the cancer center,They Immediately gave me a shot of insulin. We took a test again 2 hrs later and it hadnt changed so gave me another shot. Now the talk of admitting me...WRONG..so they gave me instructions on how to give myself injections which is fine. I will be doing it 3-4 times a day. Had to call the Doc at 9:00pm with the readings. It was going down...496.If it was over 500 I would have to have been admitted.Although she still sounded like she wanted me in....but I said if still bad in morningwhen I call her at 9:00am I will...By the way normal readings for me is between 100-120.The Decadron is causing the problems but dont want me to stop it because my side effects from the chemo will
be alot worse without steroids.
Well, Thanks for everything...all your support is great and boy does My sister Marilyn enjoy you all.
Love and hugs,
Sometimes it is a slender thread, Sometimes a strong,
stout rope; She clings to one end, I the other;
She calls it friendship; I call it hope....
