Fatigue and Headaches

KK (and I) would like to thank everyone for praying for her this week.

She handled this round of Temozolomide pretty well. She did not experience any nausea or vomiting. She was increasingly tired throughout the week and she has had slight headaches yesterday and today. Nice long naps, some essential oils, a couple doses of Tylenol, and prayer have helped.

From what I've read, fatigue and headaches are pretty common at the end of five days on Temozolomide. (Deep breath...headaches do not always mean swelling.) However, I have not been able to figure out how quickly the headaches typically dissipate after day five...I will keep track of this for the next cycle.

Just to let you know that we are still praying.
