Round 2

Tonight I begin Round 2 of my treatment. As soon as I am finished posting this entry I am going to give myself a shot and then get in bed. My hope is that I will not experience the same negative results as I did the first 2 days of round 1 (drop in blood pressure, bone aches, chills, etc.) I'll let you know tomorrow.

Also, I had an appointment with my oncologist on Monday and all looks well so far. I had an appointment with my dermatologist today and my skin looks great. Good news there!

Some of you are following my friend Pete's story - thank you & he appreciates the well wishes. I had lunch with him on Monday to celebrate him getting into the trial. We went to Oregano's, which is a fabulous Italian restaurant. The weather was awesome, in the upper 80s, so we sat on the patio.

He is traveling down to Tucson first thing tomorrow morning for his first treatment. He will spend the majority of the day there as the chemo & drug are given through an IV drip and it takes 3-4 hours. He will then need to stay for an additional 2 hours after for monitoring to ensure that he doesn't have a reaction. His mom will then drive him home, which is about a 2 hour drive. I am praying that he gets the drug and that he does not have an allergic reaction to any of the chemo. Also, I hope he has an uneventful drive home. If all goes well, I will hear from him on Thursday.
