Yesterday was my first Rituxin infusion to deal with the B-cell lymphoma in my right lung. That's a good thing.
I've been complaining about being short of breath. I guess my compensating did a good job of keeping the O2 in the 90s because, while it was down NEAR 90, it was never below until yesterday...but not much was getting done around the house and my wonderful, sweet, caring DH was doing most of what DID get done.
I've really lost weight, which I needed to do, but I really didn't plan to do it like this! I pretty much totally lost my appetite which is why the pounds have been dropping off so rapidly. And my how-to-eat-when-you-go-home instructions specifically say that I'm supposed to be "Increasing Calories and Protein." I guess I'll have to plan carefully while I'm enjoying the cheesecake, macaroni & cheese, hot cocoa, etc. And HOW can I have such YUMMY goodies while DH isn't supposed to have those goodies.
I'm too tired to deal with such a problem...
