Chemo only took two hours today from the time they hooked me up until the time I left (2.75 by the time I got my next set of appointments set up and got home). Rain's a good chemo buddy (she brought bagels and muffins and Juno to watch). Ended up sitting next to the mom of one of Becky's friends too, so we gabbed an awful lot. I should have taken a picture of the food spread they had set up in there. Don't know if that's a daily occurence or if it was a special occassion. Hope it was the latter b/c otherwise I'd expect all those nurses to weigh a ton (but they don't).
Here's a shot of the big, bad, twins Clyde and Dave. Not so good because they're in the yellow bag (every patient gets their own little yellow goodie bag). If you can make him out, Dave is the two red syringes that get injected into my IV line. Clyde is the clear pouch they hook up to me. Clyde makes it feel like I have soda bubbles in my nose.
Adriamycin (aka, Doxorubicin) and Cytoxan (aka Cyclophosphamide)
The other drugs I got today (in addition to the normal saline), were Emend, and Aloxi, for the nausea. Though the Marriage-you-wanna (aka Marijuana) pill came highly recommended by fellow patients.
Okay - one more shot.
Me and My IV (sounds like a song)
I had taken my Bah Humbug hat off to watch a movie (love the hat hair).
Feeling a bit wonky - and though I've had almost 96oz of water so far today, dry mouth. Maybe slightly queasy (this could be mind tricks though in expectation) - but I'm keeping an eye on it. The moment it gets worse, you can bet I'll be popping those pills!
