I'm on my third cold/flu/sickness since Christmas week, and it's wearing on me and my husband. And believe it or not, I did get a flu shot in the Fall. The thing he is sick of, is my coughing. Quite frankly, I'm pretty sick of all the coughing too. The February cold was probably already coming on, when we went out camping and i got chilled. That one turned into a sinus infection. This is not new to me, although it has been years since I've had one. But this new cold which came on a couple of days ago, seems to be in the chest and head. I can hear wheezing in my chest when I am breathing at night, head is all stuffed up, and I ran a low grade fever yesterday.
Next Tuesday, I have my six month check up with my oncologist. At that point it will be nearly two years since my last chemo treatment, and a year and a half since completing all breast cancer treatment. A question that I have for Oncologist is about my immune system, and if it is still compromised from the Chemo in 2011. I was feeling so good for so long, but this winter has been very trying.
So for now, I'm drinking lots of fluids, soup, tea with honey, OJ, Kefir, taking some decongestants, and resting a lot. Which feels like the right thing to be doing on this rainy Spring day. I hope I can knock it down quickly and be on the mend soon.
