I just got the call from the chemo nurses (paperwork went faster than I thought!). My first treatment will be this Thursday morning at the infusion center at Northside Forsyth. I've been told it might take 3 to 4 hours. I should be done in time for radiation at 2:00 (my rad time got switched). It will be a long day, but I've been there done that, and it's doable.
The nurse asked if I would like to have some nausea medicine called in. I told her my first round I tolerated the chemo pretty well and she replied, "Oh well, this should be a breeze then!" Since it's a third of the dose I took before, I'm anticipating very minimal side effects. We'll see . . .
I know a lot of you have responded to my mom's recruitment of volunteers - Thank You So Much! I am realizing how this cancer is becoming a blessing in lots of ways, especially how overwhelmed I am with the love and support of everyone. Julie, you got it right when you said the ripple can be a good thing! I love you all, too!!!
