Today was my second treatment and Rob went with me this time. I had an awesome view of the mountains (hills) this time and I-505. I had a different RN, his name is Sam, but Danielle did come over to see how I was doing, making me feel very comfortable, it was very nice.
So I've lost another 3 lbs. since last week, so not too bad. Treatment started like it did last week and I got the anti-nausea meds. and started an IV in my other hand. I'm so happy I'm getting my port tomorrow, no more poking and pain putting IV's in my hand. Sam did a wonderful job, he minimized my pain which of course is always good, and got the vein on the first try. My temp was at 99 so he called my oncologist and checked to make sure it was still good to proceed since all my labs came back in really good shape.
Here's where just a few of my blood levels are at:
Last week: white blood count 7.2, hemoglobin 11.4, and red blood count 4.37
This week: WBC 3.7, HBG 9.8, red blood count 3.74
Once again the Gemzar started and Sam cut it down with saline since it was burning again. Then to completely get rid of the burn he put a cold compress on my hand, worked perfect. So Rob and I hung out and talked. I did get a little tired and nauseated towards the end so Sam gave me some Compazine and it knocked it out.
We then went to Big and Tall and got Rob some pants and a cool Wolverine Marvel t-shirt, very cool and then we went to Avenue, because I was in serious need of a belt and found one, YEAH, and then for lunch we went to Bay Sushi!!! I had the tempura shrimp and veggies and then a Reno Roll.
I am happy to report that I have had an awesome day!!!! I was a little tired so I layed down and took a little nap, woke up with a little headache, but not bad. So far no bone pain, no nausea, nada!!! I love good reports.
I want to thank all of you for your support, calls, emails, positive thoughts and prayers. I can't even explain how important it is and means so very much to Rob and I that everyone has been incredibly supportive. Thank-you so very much.
Until next time,
