My Journey through Breast Cancer

On October 11, 2013, I was diagnosed with Stage II Triple Negative Breast Cancer (TNBC) ... or as we like to call it, extreme measures for a nap (EMFN). For a while, this blog will be my cancer journal. Enter at your own risk.

sick day

I stayed home today. Yesterday I woke up with a scratchy throat, and throughout the day yesterday I developed a nasty little cough, and the throat got scratchier and scratchier, to the point of every sneeze being painful. I slept well, thanks to Tylenol PM. I admit, I'm still working off the hangover. I'm looking forward to a nice long nap in my bed (instead of my car). And very slowly but surely, I'm able to get a few things done around the house, which is kind of nice. Finish the laundry, pay bills, maybe even prepare dinner ahead of time (but we'll see about that one). This is actually the perfect kind of sick day ... not so sick I want to throw myself out a window, but sick enough to excuse myself from work. I don't get sick very often either, so I figured today was a nice opportunity to actually use one of those sick days. Well, I'm off to other relaxing duties ...
