Hello friends. I wanted to give everyone a quick medical update.
I started chemotherapy on Monday. I was there for about eight hours. One of the chemo meds and I didn’t get along so well, but after some other meds and slowing down the rate of infusion, all went well. My wonderful and patient husband was by my side. I left a little jittery but slept well that night.
Tuesday was a shorter day. I was only there for about four hours. I felt really good after the shorter treatment. I felt so good, that with the assistance of my mother in law, I made two pies. One of the chemo nurses is a baker and talking with her brought out my competitive spirit, so I had to make the two. I took one to the cancer center the next day; my hungry family devoured the other.
Wednesday was a short day like Tuesday, and my mother in law came with me that day. Of course, there was a delicious pie in the room.
I took a few selfies during each day of chemo, which was unusual for me because I’m not a huge selfie taker. Then again, the chemo is unusual for me. Anyway, I sent them to a few friends, and the response was so positive, I decided to post them here. So here they are!
On another note, a young woman I coached on a high school dance to about ten years ago, Erin (Wright) Turner, passed away yesterday after two battles with malignant melanoma cancer. All I can hope is that Erin is dancing with an umbrella to Michael Jackson right now. It’s by far my favorite memory of her, and how I want to remember her. Besos sweet girl.
