Today I completed the end of my second round (4th infusion). It was pretty uneventful (believe me, you want uneventful when the drugs they’re giving you are toxic to your other organs!!!) and full of laughter. My nurse is amazing and my dear friend, Erin, took a personal day to come with me. We caught up, shared stories and laughed at so many things. Having wonderful people around me while I get my infusions is always so helpful.
My infusion nurse is wonderful. She makes me laugh and takes great care of me. She also knows I enjoy learning things about my chemo drugs or the infusion process. Today she told me that one of my drugs is made from the Periwinkle plant (so pretty!) and another drug has soil fungus in it (ewwwwww???!!!!!??).
Overall, I’ve been tolerating my treatment fairly well. The 3-4 days after chemo are uncomfortable but not nearly as debilitating as my first infusion. I’ve been losing my hair all over the place but I still seem to have a ton on my head. Yay!!!
