So, I went to the new oncologist yesterday. I have my main surgical oncologist and then this new guy, who is the hematology oncologist (translation: he does chemo). He was a total straight shooter, no bull at all, no prettying things up to make them sound better. Becky looked like she had been hit by a train by the time we were done there (which took an hour and a half).
I start chemo one week from today. 9:15 in the morning on Tuesday. My veins are good, so I don’t need a mediport, so one less surgical style procedure. 🙂 I will have 8 treatments over the next four months. And sixteen + blood tests in the next four months.
I came home feeling a bit numb, which of course wore off completely by nightfall — leading to me scaring the grocery cashier in the checkout line last night. They aren’t accustomed to crying customers at Safeway, I guess.
My brain is flitting around like a butterfly today: one thought to the next to the next completely unrelated thought, until I am spinning. I will get onto the next photojournal later today, just wanted to post the quick update first.
Blessings to you all out there!
