I had a nice long post almost ready to go...and poof it was gone, so you're going to get the short version.
I worked 1/2 day today and received:
* a gift certificate for Easter
*bouquet of flower for Administrative Assistant's day
*gift certificate for the above reason
*larger than usual paycheck (extra hours)
We've been home 2 days and I had 3 appointments.
Yesterday I had a port inserted and also a clip in my lymph node. It went very well.
Before the surgery Nan, one of my nurses, came in bearing gifts. She and Julie gave me a big, hand made blanket. When I cover up with it I am suppose to think of it as a hug from the doctor and his 2 nurses. Nan also made a small, 1/2 moon shaped pillow for use with the seat belt or tender area (after surgery). They surprised me!
Monday is my first chemo treatment and hubby is coming along with me. He's been to all of my appointments by his choice and even gave me a hug when I told him that I'm going to need a hug now and then. Tuesday I get an injection. Chemo is scheduled for every 3 weeks. I hope that goes as well as everything else has so far. It's scary, but if other women can do it, so can I!!!
Also my bff is struggling right now with the seriousness of her mother's illness. It appears that Loretta won't make it much longer. If you're a praying person please pray that Loretta is pain free and for peace for Deb and her family. Even though they know life has to come to an end it is still very difficult for them.
