Round 2 is done. The chemo is finished for the day, and now we are onto the Perjeta and Herceptin. The caps must stay on for 4 hours after they finish, such good fun!
We took some good pictures for everyone today, some before the cap went on and then some with good ol cappy. All in all it was a good day. I had some lovely visitors today that made the day go by so much quicker!
Didn’t see Rod, he didn’t surface today but the caps where here. Gavin my tech didn’t think they were cold enough so he kept them in his little freezer a bit longer. Gavin wins for the day. Oooooh that Rod.
I also used my port for the first time today, I asked Stephanie if it is really in my vein, you know my neurosis from the other day. Turns out my mom had the same question! Once she put the needle in (Stephanie not my mom), the needle got blood out so that means winning! End result, chemo went into my veins and is not floating randomly in my body. That’s a relief!
We met with my doctor today and she was rather pleased that I handled the first round so well, aside from all expected side effects. I also am now the proud owner of a certified pot card. Dreams do come true, and I just needed cancer to get one. Awesome. Lets see if I finally make it into the dispensary now.
Consensus decided for now on “”Fight Song,” although I think “Eye of the Tiger” is a better fit. I’ll keep you posted on my final answer.
Enjoy the pictures below, I hope you find them as attractive as I do! Until tomorrow…
