Chemo Day 2

Barbara took me to get my shot of Neulasta.  Everything went well.  They are supposed to have WiFi in the office in a couple weeks.  I am excited for that so on the days I am in there for at least 4 hours I will have something to do.  

I am feeling fine.  My neck did turn red today but they said it was from one of the chemo drugs.  They said to take some Benadryl and I should be fine.

Chemo Day 1

So today Carol took me for my first day of chemo, cycle 1 day 1 in chemo lingo. Except for the nurse jabbing me with a needle to access my port it was an uneventful 5 hours. I had 6 different bags of meds to go through so it took a while. They started out giving me meds for the side effects so hope they work. Then we got all my meds outlined to take during the next three weeks until my next chemo cycle which will be on May 26th. I am scheduled to have six cycles of chemotherapy, with the last towards the end of August. I go back tomorrow to get a shot of neulasta which is suppose to help my white blood count not go too low. Am still trying to schedule chemo, injections, blood draws and Dr. visits around my calendar already filled with graduations, camp and my activities! Anyone planning on doing this in the future, my advise is to schedule it way in advance. More to follow after I learn to blog and am really the one doing these posts!!

Two More Days!

Today is Friday, May 1st and I have two more days until I start my Chemotherapy adventure. I (or anyone I can get to do this) will post updates and pictures for everyone who is interested in keeping up with how I am doing. If a postitive attitude and laughter will bring on the CURE I am home free. For all of my female friends reading this, get your mammogram and do those self checks!!
