Today was chemotherapy number 2. I wasn’t really looking forward to it. I was finally starting to feel better from the last one.I just kept saying that after this one I’ll be half way through. I only have 4 treatments all together.
Morry dropped me off at 8:30am and then he went to pick up breakfast and a movie for me. When he got to the oncologist I was in an exam room having my vitals and blood taken. Everything came back normal, so I was able to have the chemo today. The doctor mentioned at the beginning that I might not be able to have chemo today if my levels weren’t good enough.But no worries, everything was fine.
By the time I was set up in the treatment room and they started the medicines (steroids, anti nausea, chemo) it was about 10am. This time it went a lot faster. They didn’t have to go as slowly since they knew I wasn’t allergic to any of the drugs.We had planned on having Morry run out and get lunch. Around 12 they said I only had an hour left so we waited to go to lunch after. The chemo finished at 1pm. I need to go back tomorrow at 1pm to get the Nuelasta shot. The doctor said this should help the sores in my mouth.She thinks I got them because my white blood count was so low last time. She also prescribed more medication to help with the nausea.
Right now I’m feeling ok. I was really tired during the chemo and after. The medication made me pretty sleepy.
We’ll see what happens over the next few days. Last time my worst days were Sat, Sun, and Mon.So, if you don’t hear from me for a while, that’s why.
I posted a video on YouTube of from my chemo treatment today. If you are interested, you can go here to see it. Or look below…
Have a good night.
