The next day

Posted on

Today is hydration day, I am sitting here in my chair getting two hours of fluids and my Neulasta shot (this makes sure that my blood cells regenerate).  I will be honest and say that today hit me a little harder than my first infusion.  I am a little more anxious and nauseated, but I think the nausea is really due to the anxiety.  I asked for some Zantac in my IV to help with that.  I will start taking my prescription meds tonight if it doesn’t get slightly better.

Jana came with me for my appointment, and I finally got to meet my pen pal Marissa!  She was here today getting hydration also.  It is so nice to finally put a face to the email.  On another note, I wanted to relax while here, but there is a translator over speakerphone translating Arabic for a patient.  It is so lovely to listen to this LOUDLY.

Into the weekend we go, I am a little more down in the shitter today and I just keep reminding myself that I have cancer and it is totally normal.  Fucked up beyond belief, but fucked up.  I can only hope that I will be able to be around my babies as much as possible this weekend before it really hits the fan by monday.  One day at a time, one step at a time, one minute at a time.  That’s all I can do.  And breathe.

Thanks again for all of the good wishes and sentiments on seeing me with Cappy.  He will return in a solid 3 weeks!

xo,

Jessie

p.s. Someone remind me to not play with Snapchat while I am getting an infusion.  There was NO recollection of taking a picture of my cap with a crown on it and then Instagramming!
