Cancer Updates continue….

Published May 29, 2018 by lynn k scott

About a month ago, I picked up a part-time job waiting tables on the weekends.  I work a day job, Monday through Friday and then started waiting tables; working seven days a week.

I admit, I don’t eat the best on the weekends, with having to be to work at 7 and off around 3:30.  Sure, I could eat on my break, but 1) I don’t want to waste the money to buy the food I serve and 2) it’s not really gluten-free and I don’t want to risk having a reaction with a packed cafe.

After I got off work on Sunday, I was very dizzy.  It continued to get worse.  I tried sleeping it off and was barely able to get out of bed.  This continued into Monday, which I thankfully had off.  I had to hold my daughter’s hand for stability, just to walk when we went out of the house.

My husband and I debated if I should go to the hospital.  I know it’s related to extremely low iron levels.  My anemia is taking forever to get under control and I am not ready to admit I need an IV transfusion.  In part, because my veins roll and collapse and IVs (or even blood draws) are extremely challenging.  Let’s not mention, how I despise doctors and hospitals and my oncologist and I are still aren’t speaking.

I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to drive to work this morning.  It was really bad and scary yesterday.  I reluctantly emailed my part-time job, explained the situation and stated as an ADA accommodation, I can only work Saturdays now.  I will use Sunday as a day of rest.  Even though chemo is completed, my body isn’t as healed as I had hoped.  I will be picking up more iron pills, as I cannot skip taking them or I will end up back in the hospital.

The silver lining is I will be able to return to attending church on a regular basis.  I have missed that.  It’s important to have fellowship on a consistent basis.

  • hugs hugs and more hugs. I’m glad you did this, took a day off in the week, otherwise you’d have worked yourself into the ground! if the dizziness gets worse, go to the hospital, better safe than sorry. xoxo
