Tick Tock

Tina's 1st chemotherapy this Friday got changed from 9:am to 1:pm and we're gonna be there for like 3 or 4 hours. They said the 1st 2 sessions would be longer.....they weren't kidding.

Waiting is freaking us both out.....just want to see what it will be like, how she'll react, how she will recover, how will she feel come Monday when she has to go back to work.....we shall see.

They are giving her the stronger of the 2 choices of chemotherapy for her situation. It causes more nausea then the other kind of chemo. so they said they will be giving her an IV drug for the nausea in addition to the pills we got already.

I spent all day today cleaning to make the apt. germ free by Friday, but I have so much more to do. We made chicken soup late tonight....I'll finish it off tomorrow......

I have so much to do tomorrow.....laundry with comforters, sheets and everything, bank,and a couple of stores....then finish off the soup, put laundry away, and more cleaning of the bedroom and kitchen.

I have to be done tomorrow because Friday T's gonna be a basket case waiting for her 1st clue how I'll be.

OK, off to bed....I need some sleep...getting up with T at 4:45 am every morning is killing me. I usually try and get a little more sleep after she leaves at 5:30 am, but I have shit to do and get done before she comes home at 3:pm-ish.


  1. Just an fyi - apparently the anti-nausea drugs they have now are dramatically better than in the past, so if T starts to experience alot of nausea as an after affect she should tell them, the docs should just be able to adjust the anti-nausea meds to help.

    Good Luck

  2. Good luck you guys! I'll be thinking about you both tomorrow and over the weekend. Really wish I lived closer. Could have helped with the laundry and the soup.
