First day of Chemo is here and aside from being a little sleepy at the moment, I'm feeling pretty darn good. Chillaxed back in the chair w/my breast cancer chemo blanket on my lap courtesy of Jennifer *thanks! i LOVE it!*, my hubby by my side, and "Deadliest Catch" on the boob-tube.
Sue, my nurse for the day, is fabulous and she looks like Maggie. I think Maggie heard me when I asked her to send someone to watch over me...maybe she's inside Sue; who knows. It's comforting to see her face though and have her tell me everything's going to be just fine. Thank you for that.
The Taxotere is almost done, and thankfully I have not had a reaction to it...yet...I don't really even feel any different yet. I don't know what I was expecting, but I wasn't expecting to just be able to sit here and tap away on my computer like it's just the normal thing I do every day. Yet I am sure that will change at some point.
Up next after the Taxotere is the Carboplatin cocktail. It has components of platinum in it...maybe my teeth will turn silver and I'll have *real* grill instead of the fake one I bought to freak the kids out! hahahah!!! oh to dream...cause I'm still upset that I didn't have *any* type of glow after my nuclear medicine shots. ;)
