Today's event started like all the rest – arrived at the strip mall for the 10:30am appointment. It was another perfect Florida day.
I was sporting my purple buff:
We saw the doctor, and in between her taking phone calls, we asked a few questions and will leave for Maine in less than two weeks. I don't appreciate the doctor taking calls when you are consulting, but at least I won't hesitate to call if I have any questions later … (Which I inferred, but was no doubt too subtle).
Over to the chemo suite, where my private room was booked. It wasn't too crowded in the main room, and I watched the US vs Germany World Cup match with the guys. I didn't pick the chair with the Palm Tree:
My Chemo Sentry stood guard while the Nurse got my IV in and began today's infusions. I will say the Nurses here have been excellent, and made the process go by quickly and painlessly.
Lou took off to check on the dogs, I ate a sandwich and an orange ( see, you're getting all the details), watched soccer and read a while. I also took a few pics to commemorate the occasion:
Not the best pic, I was definitely tired, not having slept much the night before because of the steroids.
I then modeled another of the wigs sent by the girls. This is the Deana Troi version – I, however, rocked it as a Big Hair, Bad A$$ country singer … I beg your pardon, I never promised you a rose garden …
And, that completed the day at the infusion center. Took a nap when we got home. So far, feeling fine. Hoping side effects are no worse this time, so we can pack up and hit the road!!!
Thanks for all the support and cheer leading. I do have a few more wig photos to share in the coming days.
And, I will add, my little Alien self is still going through this with me, sucking up all the bad stuff so I can feel good:
