She is going home soon!

This is great news as she is pretty tired of being in the hospital. She finished her first round of chemo yesterday and because she is so susceptible to any kind of germs now, they really want her away from a place that obviously is like germ central. She sounds really good, they have adjusted her medication and will either go home tonight or tomorrow. So far she hasn’t had any trouble from the chemo, though it is still early. The good news is today’s chemo sessions are nothing like the chemo sessions of the 70’s, 80’s or even 90’s. The side effects are not as bad and they have good medications to combat what side effects there are. This isn’t to say this will be a picnic, but we have a lot of hope it wont be too terrible for her.

    Hi everyone,
    Just a quick note to let you all know I made it home finally. There are a few hang ups with a couple of meds so my hope is that they get ironed out so that I don’t have to turn around and go back tomorrow. Other than that, I am thrilled to see my dogs and bed and pray I will be sleeping soon. Have a great night everyone.

    So glad you got to go home to your own bed! And puppies are the best medicine in the world. Thinking of you every day. If there’s anything you need, please let us know. Although we haven’t seen much of each other the last 20 years, you and your family have always been a part of ours and your friendship growing up meant the world to me. Hugs to you, your dad, Laurie and those boys! Much love.

    Wednesday is feeling pretty challenging so far. The Chemo is alive. well and playing bumper cards in my belly. I am still waiting for the right meds to arrive for no other reason than preauth is a system to kill off the weak and only the strong survive, lol. Keep the China up, this too shall pass and what doesn’t kill u and all, lol
