After too many sleepless nights, I went for the big guns: Tylenol PM (ok, it’s generic cousin). I am happy to report that, while it took me a little while to fall asleep, I did sleep well the rest of the night. No bathroom trips, no nighttime musings, nothing. The alarm actually scared the crap out of me because I am usually up before it goes off. So tonight, I am hoping it works again. I was trying to stay away from Tylenol (or any OTCs that were not absolutely necessary), as they do impact liver functioning. But at this point, I figured I’d go for the sleep and obsess over my liver at some later date!
Thanks to those of you who reached out to me after yesterday’s blog. Really, I was never under any serious threat to myself, just sharing what’s on my mind. For those of you who have been through this, you know there’s a lot to think about, all in the name of trying to live a long, healthy, happy life. And while the information is overwhelming sometimes, I think it’s important to be well-read just to know what questions to ask the doctor. I am now fully armed with 2 pages of questions for my “patient education” session tomorrow. I’m not sure I would have been quite so prepared if I hadn’t read up. It’s hard to know what questions to ask when you don’t even know what’s about to hit.
Tomorrow should be a crazy day: Work – MUGA Scan – Work – Patient Education – Work – Dinner with coworkers. (Several team members from other sites are converging on Scranton for training… can’t wait to have my whole expanded team together!!)
My wig has been delivered, but I can’t pick it up until Friday. I need to wait for the stylist and that’s the first appointment I could get. Hope all those follicles stay put until then! 🙂 (I know… it takes a little more time than that.) Gee, I have to wait ’til Friday???
Well, off to take my night time “meds”… I figure I’ll give it a better head start tonight. Sleep tight, everyone!
