Thursday night I woke up every 45 minutes or so the whole night long feeling like I was being cooked in an oven. Not night sweats specifically as I wasn’t sweaty, but more night hot flashes. The heat of my whole body would wake me up and I’d find myself laying there just overwhelmed by the heat. Holy shit it sucked.
Last night wasn’t so bad – just took forever to fall asleep and I woke up many times through the night – but it wasn’t anything near like the night before.
I’m worried in general though about the insomnia problems I seem to be experiencing and I know it’s part of the Lupron side effects but I’m hoping the add-back hormones will help level things out. Not being able to sleep is miserable especially when you’re exhausted and achy already.
Last night we went to an event that was an art auction to benefit a local animal shelter. Love donated a drawing and I donated a tree of life pendant and both sold in the silent auction. There was also a live auction and Love’s mom who came along, managed to get a signed lithograph of a P. Buckley Moss piece for only $50. It’s her favorite artist and they go for much more than that so it was a steal for her. I picked up a really handmade pretty vase and bowl in the silent auction. I tried to win a print of 3 penguins but lost out to a little kid who’s vet mom was willing to spend much more then I was to get it for him.
We had fun though and it was nice getting out for a bit. Haven’t really done anything besides doctor’s appointments and small errands in weeks now so just doing something was a good change.
Anyway, off to do some errands but just wanted to give a small update since it’s been a few days. The night hot flashes Thursday were unbelievable though and I really hope I don’t see more of those. Ugh.
