5/1/12- Laid in a bed for 6 hours getting two units of blood via IV. Only pain I felt was when they inserted the IV needle. I was not able to eat anything since I'm on a bowel prep for my brachytherapy tomorrow. Clear liquids only. I've also had to take Dulcolax and Magnesium Citrate (yuck).

I've taken my Zofran but still nauseous and I'm starving. I'm kind of glad I didn't have chemo yesterday...or I'd be feeling much worse.

I've managed to drink some beef and chicken broth. Also had some jello and all kinds of juices. I'm still hungry. I hate that empty feeling in the pit of my stomach. I feel so tired.....I just want to sleep. I want this whole week to be over.
