So...yesterday went pretty well! Just one single poke with a special needle apparatus to the area where my port is, and blood was drawn, fluids were started, and then my chemo went in in the same order is normally does (A, V, B, D). I slept during most of it, and when it was all done the port was flushed and heparin locked (which is where they use 5mg of heparin in saline to 'lock' the catheter portion of the port to prevent blood clotting inside of it. Heparin is a very powerful anticoagulant drug.). I came home around noon and pretty much slept until about 7:30. I'm feeling pretty good today (just a little bit tired), and have even completed two necklaces, two sets of matching earrings, and a bracelet. I'm about to start one more necklace, and I will see if I have any inspiration to make anything to match it. I will get pictures up from yesterday's chemo as well as some new and old pieces of jewelry on my other blog (http://nicolescancer.blogspot.com).
Thanks for stopping by, and for all the guestbook entries/stops to my other blog/stops to Myspace and Facebook! I really do appreciate the support I have recieved from everyone. It's really nice to know how many of you all are behind me in all this.
