Since this whole wig process took less than an hour, went to lunch! :-). So happy Christy and I were able to make this a happy occasion and make it fun! Oh and I got a black soft hat too. 🙂
Then Tom and I headed up to Valley for my first pre-chemo blood draw. On Saturday at the open house, Catherine told me about a lidocaine cream I could put over the port so I wouldn’t feel that needle go in. So between that and the lidocaine shot they gave me, I didn’t feel a thing. Woohoo!! She pushed this large thumbtack looking thing in the port and then drew the blood. She did leave the needle and tube in and taped it up, since I am coming back in the morning.
The nurse, Kari, also talked about the chemo meds I’ll be getting for the first round (Adriamycin and Cytoxan) and then talked about what to expect for tomorrow. She emphasized that no one really knows how they will feel after the chemo or what side effects they will get as everyone is different. So again, one day at a time. 🙂
Please pray that we will be able to sleep well tonight and again for as little nausea as possible! Thanks friends!
