Stage 2B 病人
First dose of chemo done and over!! WOOOO!!!!
Dr. Juna did a "bait and switch" on me, though. She still wants to get other specialists on board with my case, but she didn't want to delay treatment any longer, so instead of the TCH treatment I was set to get, I received Adriamycin (aka: The Red Devil) and Cytoxan. Now... These changes made me ponder great things:
1. A port was supposed to make chemo infusions easier, correct? Then why did the nurse say, "This might pinch a bit." as she came at me with a rail road spike that she jammed into my shoulder?? OW!! (Well... Not really. I'm embellishing for dramatic interest... I guess)
2. I'm a bit concerned about a chemo medicine that has earned the nickname - "The Red Devil." It sounds like one of those scary carnival rides. I suspect that along with my hair falling out and lowered white blood cell counts, I will also crave cotton candy and develop an unnatural fear of clowns.
Thank you, my Sistahs, for all your love and support! It means the world to me!!
