Infusion #1, part 2

1 down, 5 to go. It was odd to change my thinking that poison is good for me. But that's what my focus was. I was told I did well. It was a long day. Probably longer for Amy who spent most of it in her car, reading. I spent a lot of my time snoozing and listening to an audio book, checking email, playing with facebook, listening to music. Pad Thai for lunch was great. The soda that Amy brought me when I had the worst dry mouth of my life was awesome, absolutely awesome! Fantastic!

Debbie delivered an awesome meal of fresh fruits and veggies and her wonderful chicken and noodles. Zoned out watching The Golden Girls for awhile, and then Amy and I went to a movie.

The only glitch in the day is that both big boys' school schedules are messed up...Nathan's first high school class starts 11 minutes after his last university class (assuming he drops the one class he wants to drop, otherwise there is a direct conflict) and Aidan has no English class. Tynan was late to soccer camp and got punished, or so he says. He hates soccer camp.

I'm cranked on steroids (I've never reacted well to them), but pleased that I've got the option to take them and the other anti-nausea drugs. It's very weird for me to be popping so many pills, that's for sure.

Thanks for all the good wishes. I go back for my Neulasta tomorrow (Thursday). That has me more worked up than the whole chemo thing did.

I think I'm going to make a chemo shirt, black with pink boxing glove. Anyone else in?

OK, I went and looked up to see how Neulasta is packaged. "Neulasta® is supplied as a preservative‑free solution...in a single‑dose syringe with a 27-gauge, 1/2-inch needle."
So, yep, it's the teeny-tiny one, all right.

If you can think of anything useful I can do, don't hesitate to ask. It sounds like you're doing really well.

And, yes, I'd be interested in one of those t-shirts. (Is there an iron-on picture to put on a black shirt, or how do you make them?)

Peggy, we had our Boob-a-liscoius tshirts made at Aardvark, so that's probably what I'd do. They ran about 10$ each. I'll toy with the idea, get with my graphic designer, see what we can come up with that doesn't absolutely violate copywrite....

I'm not big on popping pills either so I understand the weirdness of it all, but everything I hear tells me you should pop them under these circumstances.Glad it seems to being going well so far We're all with you in spirit!

hope you get that schedule issue resolved... around here, the pseo options turned into a huge scheduling nightmare when antioch closed - next nearest univ is 20 minutes away. soon, though, new antioch.
