i went to Smilow when the lab opened at 7 am to get my pre-treatment blood work and then went to work.
I had a 12:30 appointment so I left my office around 12:15, 5 minute walk to my parking garage, then drive and park at Smilow and check in on the 7th floor. The nurse took me in right away – weight, vitals and the usual questions (pain, neuropathy, bowels, etc. ). She had ordered the chemo when she saw my test results come through. I took the dexamethasone. She got a co-worker to “read” (safety double check to make sure the right person getting the right medication ) then the shot in the belly and I was out of there and back in my office in less than an hour!
I had Book Club in Redding tonight. Not the best planning on my part. I was tired. Couldn’t have any wine. Got leg cramps driving to and from. BUT it was really good to see everyone who made it and catch up. (We even talked about some books!)
Having trouble sleeping tonight, even with my “aids”. My legs are achy and I’m quite nauseous.
But, only 6 more days this cycle and then a week off.
