I start my new treatment protocol tomorrow morning. This chemo is on a 3 week cycle as well. It's administered over 24 hours, but the good news is that I don't have to stay in the hospital. Instead, they hook me up to a pump and I can go home almost immediately. Home Care will come on Friday to disconnect me. This chemo has fairly minimal side effects - they're pretty much the same as the last chemo and again, I'm happy because apparently the nausea is pretty minimal with this one. I do have to go to Toronto to get this chemo - thank goodness for supportive friends and family!
Please keep me in you prayers tomorrow. I'm a bit anxious about this. It's been a while since I've had chemo. My hair is growing back (although there is a very good chance I won't lose what little I have) and my energy is returning. I'm dreading the low energy, the low blood counts (and watching for infections and being wary of crowds) and the general feeling of "yuckiness" that you get when you go through chemo.
