Had my 3rd round of chemo yesterday. This was for the full cocktail of chemo drugs, an every 2-week event. On the other weeks, I'm getting a single bag of shrinky juice- Cetuximab - a targeted therapy for colon cancer that has spread, like mine, to the liver.
This round was a much better experience that my 1st. They gave me a Benadryl and I basically slept thru 4 hours of the appt. Lee was able to find a spot in the health center and work on his laptop.
So, except fo not sleeping last night, I feel FAB....my dad is here babysitting me for a bit and we will indulge in some tea and Carrot cake!
Once again, prayers answered: I had a no-drama chemo experience, so far I'm feeling good, post-chemo. What else can a girl ask for? Well, I'd LIKE to ask that one of my side effects - major acne- would go away, but no room for vanity, as long as the drugs do their job, I will handle being ugly!
Oh, one last thing: The baked goods we brought to the Chemo Crew worked like a charm. All the ladies stopped by my room and thanked us profusely! Will treat them again in a few weeks.
Jayn and Larry (Lee's parents) to arrive early evening. Colleen has 4 performances in Wizard of Oz, starting tonight. All seats were sold-out in PRESALES. Col will be one tired girl, but I know she loves the experience.
Have a great weekend everyone, and, as always, thanks for your prayers and support!
