Chemo day

1st day of chemo done!  Today was a very long day for my sister, but for now it’s behind her.   Prior to getting chemo she gets anti nausea medication and steroids, the steroids have made her very jittery and really heightened her senses today.  The chemo itself last about an hour and forty-five minutes, this will go on every 2 weeks for a total of 4, then the next cycle will go on for 12 weeks.  Chemotherapy can reduce white blood cells which can weaken her immune system and put her at risk for infections.  To help boost her white blood cells she also has a Neulasta auto injector, the medication is delivered over 45 minutes approximately 27 hours after it is activated.

Tonight she is pretty tired and I hope she is able to rest and get a good nights sleep,  her body has been through quite a bit and needs time to recover, sweet dreams my sister, I love you!

    Let me know if you guys need to use our Condo. It’s kind of near TMC. It has a pool and jacuzzi and no tenant right now so it’s empty, but I’m just putting that out there.
