So far, I am feeling just fine! I have a very little tinge of a headache, but that's really nothing new! The premeds they gave me are working well at this point! Hopefully this all sets the trend of how I will be throughout... Haha! I know the worst is yet to come. I am not delusional (well, maybe just a bit!) but I'm sure happy right now.
The oncologist told me 7-10 days will be when it hits me the worse with fatigue, etc. So I know that's out there, but I feel really good about how I'm starting out with it all.
I occupied my time with games on my phone (thanks Rebecca, Julie and Teresa for playing WWFs with me today!), listening to affirmations and meditations (thanks, Lou!) and crocheting a couple necklaces, too! Also, thanks for the text messages I received as well! I feel so loved!
When I first entered the infusion room, I felt kinda emotional seeing all the others in the room already hooked up to their IVs. Just another moment of it hitting home and that there I was, too, amongst others going through the same thing and it seemed more real seeing it happening to them than it did for me. I could hardly make eye contact with Scott for fear of losing it completely. Luckily the feeling subsided fairly quickly and I just got on with my day.
Scott left after a little while and ran some errands and brought me lunch. What a trooper he is! God bless him!
And now we're at Becky and Jared's again, enjoying a nice evening.
Tomorrow I go back again in the afternoon for the Neulasta shot to boost the white blood cell count. They say I may have some bone (back or sternum) pain from that, but hopefully it won't be too bad.
Then my next treatment will be 3 weeks from today.
All in all,Life is good in this moment!
Love you all!
