Today, October 31, 2018, marks the end of week one since Dad’s first chemotherapy treatment.
I cannot believe how much has changed since last Thursday. He is so tired and weak that it takes everything he has to walk down the stairs. He has been sleeping all day long, every single day since we came home from his chemo treatment.
I know they say that chemotherapy causes fatigue, but I cannot help but to think that it is not just the treatment. I feel like the cancer is what is causing the majority of his fatigue at this point. We are 7 days in, and absolutely nothing has changed (or improved) regarding side effects of chemo.
It is absolutely terrifying to think of all of the possible scenarios. My brain is working in overdrive, analyzing his every move, his every breath. The unknown is very difficult to accept.
