I have been pretty ill all week. The fall I had last week really knocked the stuffing out of me and left me with lots of bruises. I have spent the week mostly lying still and sleeping, but there are signs of improvement. The bruises are changing color and the swelling has been going down. Part of the problem is that I am fully anticoagulated and I have been bleeding from the LMW heparin injection sites.
I lost 7 pounds in weight, but I have regained 5 of them. The breathlessness is less but still a problem on climbing stairs.
I restart chemotherapy on Tuesday week.
