Getting Started

Checked into the hospital at 1:00.  My room is much bigger than I expected.  I have a TV with DVD player, a bathroom, window (I can see the mountains), couch and recliner chair.  I'm able to wear my own clothes and move around as much as I like. 

Here is a picture from my room.  I have one of Teya's pink fuzzy blankets and my own pillow.  The pink cheers up the room.

I am now waiting for treament to begin.  We were hoping to begin at 4, but we are running behind.  I have met me doctor and nurses and they are fantastic.  They are all experts on my treatment and I feel good about being in their care. They do have something to give me to help with most of the side effects, so that makes me feel better.

My monitors do not like me typing.  I have the pulse thing on my finger and it keep setting off alarms. Pretty annoying.

I'll keep updating as I can.

I'm so glad to see you updating your blog so soon! Your room sounds great and I'm happy to hear that you have a good doctor and nurses. What a difference that can make!

I can see from your picture that you are still positive and strong as you start out your treatment. That's the Tina we know and love! Hopefully you were able to get your first treatment in and are resting comfortably tonight.

Wishing you sweet dreams of healing tonight.

I feel that it is such a blessing knowing they are able to medicate for most of the side effects. I am so glad that they are taking care of you so well. We are praying like warriors. Love you tons.
