The twelve days of chemo

On the first day of chemo these delights came to me
The most scary, bright pink pee
 
On the second day of chemo these delights came to me
Total exhaustion and some more scary bright pink pee
 
On the third day of chemo, these delights came to me
A very queasy tum, total exhaustion,
but no more funny pink pee
 
On the fourth day of chemo, these delights came to me
Very fuzzy head, one queasy tum, total exhaustion,
but no more funny pink pee
 
On the fifth day of chemo, these delights came to me
A foul tasting mouth
very fuzzy head, queasy tum, total exhaustion,
but no more funny pink pee
 
On the sixth day of chemo, these delights came to me
Dreadful constipation,
foul tasting mouth
very fuzzy head, queasy tum, total exhaustion,
but no more funny pink pee
 
On the seventh day of chemo, these delights came to me
Clumps of hair a falling, dreadful constipation,
foul tasting mouth
very fuzzy head, queasy tum, total exhaustion,
but no more funny pink pee
 
On the eighth day of chemo, these delights came to me
Skin nerves a jangling, clumps of hair a falling, dreadful
constipation,
foul tasting mouth
very fuzzy head, queasy tum, total exhaustion,
but no more funny pink pee
 
On the ninth day of chemo, these delights came to me
Needless tears a falling, skin nerves a jangling, clumps of hair a
falling, dreadful constipation,
foul tasting mouth,
very fuzzy head, queasy tum, total exhaustion,
but no more funny pink pee
 
On the tenth day of chemo, these delights came to me
Clumsiness and stumbling, needless tears a falling, skin nerves a
jangling, clumps of hair a falling, dreadful constipation,
foul tasting mouth,
very fuzzy head, queasy tum, total exhaustion,
but no more funny pink pee
 
On the eleventh day of chemo, these delights came to me
Grumpy bad temper, clumsiness and stumbling, needless tears a falling,
skin nerves a jangling, clumps of hair a falling, dreadful
constipation,
foul tasting mouth,
very fuzzy head, queasy tum, total
exhaustion,
but no more funny pink pee
 
On the twelfth day of chemo, these delights came to me
Blood counts a dropping, grumpy bad temper, clumsiness and stumbling,
needless tears a falling, skin nerves a jangling, clumps of hair a
falling, dreadful constipation,
foul tasting mouth,
very fuzzy head, queasy tum, total exhaustion,
but no more funny pink pee

  1. Didi! I’m so glad you are back in Y and resting up. Your blog posting has been a success! Although the side effects sound awful, I am glad your sense of humour is well and truly intact. I am sure you are looking forward to the Chemo being over and the side effects abaiting. Hang in there!
    Chi found out yesterday that he got into Uni! So, he will be doing his Diploma in Jazz Music this year and working part-time. He’s very pleased with himself and looking forward to this next exciting chapter.
    I’m at work at the moment so I must get on with it.
    Enjoy your peaceful retreat xoxoxoxox
