Next Week Chemo Round Two Begins

Recent Entries · Archive · Friends · Profile

* * *

Next week I’m slated to have my second chemotherapy infusion on Wednesday with my neulasta injection to follow on Friday morning. Technically, I should have the chemo on Thursday, but for obvious reasons*, Thursday wasn’t good for scheduling purposes.

Being on the tail end of chemo cycle one, I feel a bit better prepared, expectation-wise, for this upcoming session. Everyone says the first one is the worst. If that’s the case, sure, I got this.

Of course, the one after this one (chemo cycle three) begins the intrathecal (lumbar puncture) infusions. I feel far less cavalier about the prospect of those.

[*Just realized it might not be obvious to folks who aren't on the American holiday calendar. Thursday is our Thanksgiving holiday.]

Oh, Eugie.

I really hope the chemo does its job, and that you will never need to go through this again.
