So Today I went to the hospital to get another "push" of the oh so wonderful Chemo. It was a Monday and my mom and I were prepared to spend another 4 or so hours as we waited for the Hospital to process my blood and have it checked by a doctor so that they could then alert the Pharmacy to make the chemo.
My mother last night was looking all around to find her earphones so that she could watch a movie while she was waiting because last time she ran out of things to do and became quite antsy. And as I was rushing out the door this morning I forget my headphones.
As we arrived to the hospital we waited a little longer than usual for a bed in the Procedure Room so that my port could be accessed so they could draw my blood and then give my chemo through it. So I was preparing for a long day. My name was finally called and I was given a bed. As I walked into the procedure room I saw Sean and his mother there. I had not seen them for a few weeks or so. It was good to talk and catch up with them.
After I was accessed they drew my blood and then I was given a pager and of my mother and I went to wait until the pager went off. Last week we waited and waited and didn't get home until about 2:30 or 3:00. So when the pager went off today at 11:30 we were way surprised and excited.
Today was a good day!
I was asked by a reader names Aimee how long my breaks are in between rounds.
I have a 5 consecutive day treatment every third week and then during those two weeks in the middle I go in both Mondays to get a hit. So the longest break I have is days and those are great 6 days.
Well I would like to thank everyone for comments, words of encouragement, and prayer. You never can have to many.
Also my white blood cell count was sooooo high that I don't need to continue the daily shots. This makes me happy for two reasons. One I don't get as many needle pokes and second because it means that my body is rebounding and staying healthy so that no chemo treatments will be delayed so that I can return to my normal life as soon as possible.
Shot count: 22
Pill Count: 57
