Chemo number 2

Well, I had my second chemo treatment on Friday.  I was nervous, but not shaking like I had been the last time, so that was an improvement!  I saw my friend that I had met last time again, which was fun.

Overall, the actual treatment seemed to go better, due in part to the fact that I knew more about what to expect.  The creepy red stuff was still creepy, and the second drug that makes me feel like I have an instant sinus infection seemed a little harder to take this time, but at least I knew more about what to expect.

My doctor gave me a different line of drugs for the nausea this time, and while I think they've been helping, they make me really, really drowsy, so I've been sleeping a lot this weekend. 

I made it through my first shot yesterday, and my next one is coming up in a couple of hours.  My bones are already starting to hurt, mainly just my sternum and my hips so far, but again, at least I know what's coming.  I'm dreading getting to the point where even the bones in my fingers hurt, but at least I know it will pass.

Anyway, it's time for another nap, hopefully I can stay awake long enough to see who wins the Olympic hockey game (in OT as I write this, GO USA!), and I'm looking forward to seeing at least some of the closing ceremonies. 

Thanks for taking the time to read this, and thanks again for all the messages of encouragement and support you all have given us - they really do mean a lot!

  2. I miss you, Kelli! It seems our family has been hit hard this winter with colds, the flu, and now walking pneumonia. It's stuff that shouldn't be passed on, that's for sure. I am looking SO forward to the day we can hang out again. I think of you and pray for you every day.
