Today was my first day of chemo. The day started off a little slow because they wanted to check my Hickman line to make sure it was good to go. After a quick ultrasound I got the green light to begin. I would tell you that I was dreading this day, but things went pretty smooth. My biggest complaint is visiting the bathroom a million and one times. They gave me like 8 bottles of IV during the day. Not sure if I’ll get some more tonight before bed, but I’m ready for it. Hopefully tomorrow will be as good as today and there is no Chemo Beast around the corner waiting to pounce on me. Ain’t nobody got time for that! LOL Hope you know where that line comes from.
Well I am glad I posted something in two consecutive days. Who knows, I could do a third. Stayed tuned. One cool part about this process is many people that want this procedure belong to a forum and we’re always sharing information. These are people that usually never meet face to face, but become close friends. I’m very lucky to have two ladies, Tammy and Brooke, that is/will be doing this with me in Russia. If it wasn’t for MS or HSCT we would have never met, but since we did, it’s like we go way back. lol It is good to have someone to talk to that is going through this treatment too. I am lucky that I have my wife, Tammy, and soon to arrive Brooke. It makes the journey that much more happier.
