I am home....was at oncology treatment Clinic from 8:00 am, until 5:00 pm. Will write about it later tonight.....
OK It is later....lol I am sittinghere typing this and it is 10:28 pm.......For hours now I have been waiting for the other shoe to drop, in other words waiting for something really horrible to start happening. I keep tugging at different spots of hair on my head it's all well attached. lol I keep waiting for the nausea, I ate lasagna for supper and still nothing. I have the cleanest fingernails in the world because I keep washing them to see if they are coming loose yet. I keep focusing on my lower tummy in case the diarrhea hits. You guys......there is nothing...nothing at all. I feel the same way I did 3 days ago. My Power Port is aching throughout my shoulder but nothing severe. I have to say though that when they manipulated my port to infuse the chemo meds it hurt. It is so sore. THAT WILL GO AWAY AFTER IT HEALS IAM SURE, AFTER ALL I JUST GOT IT YESTERDAY, RIGHT??? Soooooo, now I will just spend the next 3 weeks doing all those things I have done today. I am almost giddy about wanting my hair to fall out.....lololol I saw some wigs to die for and I wanna go get one....I told myself, "not until you have to shave your head". Just in case I would be that one person who doesn't lose her hair! lol
OK first thing they weighed me and measured me ..TWICE!!! (do you know that I have shrunk from 5'10" to 5'8" in the last 7 years!!) After that I just sat in the room with them taking my vitals about every hour. The treatment started at 11:00am. Found out why I had to set there for 3 hours before the treatment ever started. Because...they send my measurments to the pharmacy where they have to calculate and mix the chemo drugs according to those numbers. So every one's is different but proportionally the same. They hung the first bag at 11:00am. Altogether there were 6 bags of liquid. The first 5 had to run about an hour apiece. Then the last one had to run an hour. They said next time it will be faster because they will run the bags through faster since I don't have reactions. To tell you the truth, I slept most of the day. The nurses said I was really sawing logs! lololol But I am yawning again and feel tired, (a side affect is feeling week and tired). So until tomorrow, I love you all!!!
