Well, this will be quick, because my pilllow is calling, but I made it through my first round of chemo. I was so scared that I was shaking for a good hour or two, but my nurses are really really nice, and one of them introduced me to another woman about my age, with breast cancer, who has already been through a lot of chemo. She was really helpful, and between her, my super-friendly nurse, Dave, and my parents, I eventually stopped shaking and settled in.
The first drug is this creepy red stuff that a nurse with special coverings has to personally push into my IV. The second drug they put in makes me feel like I have an instant sinus infection. Yuck. The good news is that the sensation is going away.
Right now, my mouth tastes like metal, and food tastes really weird. And I need a nap.
So, you can pray for me - pray that I wouldn't get too sick, pray that I would be able to give myself the shots starting tomorrow, and pray that the chemo would take all the cancer cells away!
Thanks for your prayers, and your support. They mean so much!
