I can finally sit back and relax, because the first round is finally over. That was by far the toughest round of chemo that I have ever been on. I guess that I did myself no favors by not eating a small breakfast before leaving for chemo Wed. morning. I had a bagel about an hour into treatment and had another bagel when I got to my house, but that was about it for solid food for me. Over the two days I had a combo of apple sauce, vanilla pudding, and smoothies. Usually in the past I have been able to eat a little bit but I think the shock of getting back into this was just a bit too much for me to handle.
This morning I woke and Jenny took me over to the cancer center where I received an entire bag of fluids along with another anti-nausea medicine. I got home and took a small nap, and then before I knew it Steven, Haley, Lillian, and Harlan stopped by. I tried to eat a slice of pizza and it went down pretty easy and from then on I have felt halfway decent. Jenny was harping on me over the two days that I needed to eat something solid or I wouldn't feel well. (I guess every blind squirrel finds a nut sometimes) I was planning on taking a short ride tomorrow with Jenny to see our beautiful cousin Emma win the Rambler Pageant in Lancaster, but we have decided that after these past two days I should just chill out a bit. I'm scheduled to get more fluids and meds at the hospital tomorrow and Sunday but we'll see how I feel if that happens.
I hope that everyone has a great week. And I really appreciate everyone that texted, emailed, sent a card or called this past week.
