Fun fact... you have no idea how much your nose hair does until you don't have any.
Word of caution... do not Google "nose hair" to try to find a funny picture to add to your blog. It's disturbing.
My nose is like a leaky faucet lately. And I sneeze a lot more than usual. Unfortunately I've caught a little bit of a cold, which only makes the problem worse. I carry kleenex with me everywhere.
Speaking of catching a cold, the doc says I need to watch out. Bleomycin (the B in the ABVD chemo regimen I received) is very hard on your lungs. Having a cold could cause inflammation of the lungs or even an infection in the lungs. It's not likely, but I need to let the doctor know if I have a cough that lasts more than two weeks. If you recall, I had a pulmonary function test (lung test) before I started treatment and my lungs measured at 107% strength. Considering I only had 4 chemo treatments, I'm pretty sure I won't have any issues with my lungs, but the doctors are being cautious.
My mother- and father-in-law are coming in to visit this weekend! Should be a fun weekend of catching up and celebrating Wednesday's good news!
