First day not bad!

We had to be at Rush at 10:00 am so we left on the train real early. We dropped Ryan of at school(he was like see ya). Then we met Karen and we were off. The triple lumen Hickman catheter that was inserted into my chest went fine, at least i think so, i was so doped up I did not care what happened to me. I then had 6hrs of fluids and at 10 pm 2 hrs of cytoxan(chemo with a side of mixed anti nausea meds). Surprising everything went fine and I am feeling better then yesterday. The only thing that bothered me was the 6 ponds i gained from the fluids. Tim and I took some walks around the unit(very romantic) then the allowed us to go get coffee at the coffee shop before I really get susceptible to infection. Exciting hah! Well I hope tomorrow goes as well. Keep your fingers crossed . Tim will post pictures soon!

Love Ya, Miss You,

I am so glad it went well! I like that you made that cyoxin sound like a main course with a side dish! Hilarious! Donna said she has had 2 LARGE sweet teas from Mc Donalds and she can sympathize with the 6 lbs of fluid gain =)I am thinking of you and hope it is going as well today! Love you!
