Today was a shorter day in the infusion room. I woke up about two hours early and could not quite convince myself to fall back asleep. When I arrived at the clinic, I suddenly felt very faint and light-headed. Until this point, I have managed to hold back any 'episodes' of nastiness, and today was a challenge. Thankfully, the nursing staff worked quickly to 1.) Bring my temperature down to a normal level, and 2.) Giving me some anti-nausea medicine through my port. Once that was over, the day went pretty efficiently.
I only had the Bleomycin injected today, which took only a couple of hours (in addition to the consultation with a physician assistant). Overall, I was happy today was over with quickly, though I did not have it too bad. After the session, I went with my dad to Perkins for some breakfast - a treasure anyone going through chemo may remember is scarce (appetite) - and then headed back for Milwaukee. We stopped to pick up my two new prescriptions for heartburn and nausea, and then drove back to Whitewater.
My first time in class is tomorrow. I am very excited to finally attend the college I have been living in for over a week now! So far, it looks as though the semester will be quite a journey!
