Chemo #1

The chemo is done for today. I’ve had fluids, anti-nausea medication and the chemo drugs and now I’m home. The whole process took about 4.5 hours, and the worst part was the needle stick into my port. With the exception of one little scream when that happened, I think I was a pretty good patient. I had a private room with a private bathroom and my own TV. Tracy stayed with me the whole time and my mom came by too. I even had a visit from Larry Shyatt, one of the UF basketball coaches and player David Lee. I’ll take more anti-nausea medication tonight and will continue it as needed. I will have a shot of Neulasta tomorrow, and then will wait for two weeks until my next treatment on February 4th.

John and the boys are out on an outdoor adventure and I’m going to take a walk — I feel fine right now so I’m going to take advantage of it.
