causing me to pass out and I was ambulanced to the VA ER. My heart rate was 130-185 and it took 10 hours for them to get my heart into a normal rhythm. I stayed overnight in the hospital. I banged my knee on the fall so bad I couldn't walk without help for a few days. I even hit a 101 fever that night. It was normal by mid day the next day. As if I don't take enough pills, I am on more pills for my heart. They want me to keep pushing through chemo and that is what I am going to try and do as round 5 starts tomorrow. I hope this latest pill and my over hydration plan keeps the atrial fibrillation away. I will be worried going into round 5. As a matter of fact, I am pretty scared but need to keep fighting through it if I can handle it. Because of my current medical condition, I am no longer allowed to work.
NOW ON THE PLUS SIDE: I have gained 9 pounds in the last 3 months. Today is Fathers Day and I feel pretty good. After church, I went for a 3 mile walk along the Boise River with Sharette and the boys. We spent an hour walking, talking and taking pictures. I gambled on my stomach by eating a 5 Guys cheeseburger but so far so good. We all went to the YMCA after lunch where I did the second workout through my live strong workout plan and kicked butt (for me). I know I am a lot thinner and weaker that I was several months ago but working out now will make the chemo and post chemo recovery easier. Now time to figure out if I will float the Boise River during my chemo break in July. Time will tell but I want to do something like that before summer is over.
