Second chemo therapy

Today is friday the 28th of August and it is my second chemo therapy. After my radiation around 9:30 AM. I went directly to the oncological ward where I have my chemo therapy scheduled. The nurse started with some blood test to determine if I will need a blood transfusion prior to chemo. While waiting for the test results she gave me a pouch of dextrose that took about 1.5 hrs to consume. Luckily I didn’t need a blood transfusion so she proceeded with the chemo after the drops. She gave me liquid medicine for nausea and cortisone and something that make me urinate every 10 minutes. All the process finished at around 3:30 PM. My husband and mother in law pick me up for a weekend holiday in Sölvesborg on the south of Sweden.

Aside from Nausea, I feel ok, but it seems my stomach don’t feel any satisfaction anymore because I always feel hungry even if I feel like my stomach rupture. Very strange!

I got these medicines for nausea in tablet forms:
Emend should be taken in the morning in 3 days
T Zofran morning and night in 3-4 days
T Primperan if needed
Dimor for diarrea

a trace after last week’s chemo after my nurse
injected me on the wrong place

now still there after more than a week.

In the afternoon, I was pick up at the hospital by my husband and my mother-in-law. We were booked for a weekend holiday in the south of Sweden in a town called Sölvesborg.

I am a swedish citizen with asian origin, lives in Sweden, entrepreneur, accountant, fashion designer, dressmaker, professional interpreter and translator and from year 2014, I also became a local politician with some assignments from the local government. I moved to Sweden after marriage with a Swedish national in 1986. Two years later we got a son followed by a daughter after 21 months. Satisfied with life in fact, I guess I got all I wished for, it feels I have everything. Being married is not just a bed of roses, the roses have thorns also and you can get it at times but we’ve always been doing pretty good. Kinder and better husband I do not think I can get, everyone has their flaws and life becomes easier if you can accept them. I’m not a perfect person either. I became a grandmother quite young, only 45 years old, was a little skeptical at first but then I loved to be one. Now I am already a grandmother of two, a boy and a girl of 20 months between them, such a great feeling, it feels like it was a replay of my life. When I have both of them at home, it feels like I was young again and is the mother of small children. I can not explain but so damn good it is. When I moved to Sweden I knew nothing about the country, but now it feels like I’ve always lived here. I speak Swedish better than my native language, better in Swedish grammar than my husband, it may sound strange but it’s true. I dream even in Swedish. I hang out with many Swedes, have worked and still working in Swedish companies. I go to the Swedish church though I am a Roman Catholic. We believe in the same God anyway. I’ve adapted pretty well in Swedish society. I think I have to adjust to that country I moved to, not the country or its citizens to adapt to me. Sweden has no responsibility whatsoever that I wanted to move here so I could not demand anything else, but now a citizen, I think I have the right as any other native Swedes. I pay taxes and do my duties as a citizen. I think I am a good role model and a loyal citizen and can fight for my new country.
