The first chemotherapy session is done. We didn't get a lot of clarity as the bone marrow results are not in yet, and the nurse did her job, as Dr. Thompson said she would, to tell us of all the possible side effects. That was the only nauseous moment of the day as she factually described unpleasantness. I have a plastic, electric powered injection machine that is supposed to deliver medication tonight that emits a bright green flash every few seconds. I'm the first firefly of the season to show up at the Hideaway. And I picked up two additional nausea medications plus Prednisone from the pharmacy that I am supposed to take for next five days. Go back in a week to check white blood count and do it all again in three weeks. I did see that I am stage IIE which means it's early and is located in extranodal tissue (my stomach) as well as a lymph node. It was a long process as I was in the clinic for 8 1/2 hours. Plus rush hour traffic both ways. We timed that right, didn't we?
We are so appreciative of all the encouragement and prayers. It means a lot to receive the messages.
