First one done

Yesterday went pretty good. Mom and I got to the office around 9 and the nurses got me started right after that. I actually didn't get the first chemo until noon just because they had to give me so many fluids, steroids and anti nausea medicine. The cisplatin took around 2 hours to finish and the the irinotecan took about an hour and 45 minutes. We finally got out of there around 5 and I went into work after. I hadn't plan on staying the whole practice but I felt alright so I decided I had nothing better to do.

I actually got sleep last night. That was one thing I was worried about since I had a hard time during the last round of treatments. Today has been so-so. I will feel alright for a while and then feel a little suspect. I just feel like laying in bed and getting sleep but I know I would feel better if I did something productive instead of laying around.

Just wanted to let you all know I survived the first round. Just 5 more to go!

  4. Jeryka! I don't keep up on facebook well at all, but wanted to let you know since I recently found out about all of this I've been praying for you and thinking about you lots. You are such a strong person, but I know that probably doesn't make it any easier. Know I'm thinking about you and will continue to pray!
