unmet DEXpectations

Dexmethasone9.00 pm – Chemo Eve  What happened today?  Where’s that burst of energy that was promised me?  I’m struggling to stay awake at 9.00 pm, having been heavily tired all day, notwithstanding the doses of DEX.  I have a dull headache and slight tingles in my hands and feet, but otherwise so far so good.

DEX did his job well as far as the appetite stimulant was concerned. Let’s just say I had a hearty serving of dinner tonight. (Note to self – don’t do that again!)

I’m off to bed. The book I’m reading is going to be disappointed in me. Why do I have the feeling that there’s a rude awakening sometime in my near future?

Tuesday  3.00 am

Awake.  Retreat to the couch for some online time and then dozing under a throw rug.  Nocturnal birds are in good voice until, in the dawn light, the Night Herons, our seasonal residents, return after grazing on the shoreline in the dark.  The mynahs are early with their taunts to move the herons on. They hold their ground and settle in to sleep.
