        Well, it's started. The standard for Kim's treatment is a few hours in the clinic and then 48 hours at home on a small portable pump. Then a full week off, and then second treatment two weeks from today. The oncologist will make adjustments in dosage and other additives based on how she feels and responds.

        Kim, you're in my thoughts all the time, but especially today, tomorrow and Thursday. Drink as much as you can stand, to help flush out the toxins.

        And focus on ponies and daisies!

                      Well I am home. Pump in tow. LONG day, got there at 8:30 felt like a horse that was going to bolt at any second, plastic bag on side of road, LOL The nurses are amazing. I had already made friends with several that were not the chemo ones. and they all came back to chat. The educator is a great girl, she is genuine and knows her stuff.
                      I pretty much knew about the drugs since I spend way too much time reading about them.
                      The nurse that did the infusion, Sue is great. a few months older than me and 6 ft tall. and does not look her age.
                      She was super.
                      I do not know what the big fuss is about using a numbing cream for the needle insertion into the port, I never felt it.
                      Hell I have been bitten by horse flies and deer flies, now those hurt.
                      She was funny, she said some cannot take even the littlest prick.
                      Gave me dex, Gee we know what that is, and anti nausea stuff. I brought my kindle, but not much time to read, so much checking and chatting.
                      they give you lunch from their bistro, I had chicken and baked potato and a slice of Angel food cake.
                      All the water and juice and coffee or tea or whatever you want. They give you 2 goodie bags, water bottles, puzzle books, lotion, thermometer, stress ball, More I forget what.
                      IT is just long. Boring. oh they give you an ipad and free net flix. I watched the money pit! LOL
                      I never felt any different. MY blood pressure was up both times they took it, but she said that is the stress of the day.
                      This pump is a pain in the tush, it is not that small, it is in a carrying bag, I have been carrying it like a purse, but I think I will put it over my head like a shoulder thingy for sleep. I cannot see how anyone could forget it.
                      I did get Sue to show me my CT scan, UGH.. And I did learn a few interesting things,
                      You know they are never supposed to say, no you cannot be cured, but what this will do, with any luck is shrink that bad boy down to make things more comfortable.
                      This is what makes me so mad. All my tests were excellent, kidney, liver is still good,
                      I was as healthy as a horse.. HA HA HA ! until this.
                      even the CT scan report which I was reading said no other abnormalities seen.
                      I am not tired, I feel okay. no pain, but I figure that is the Dex.
                      I get it out Thursday at 2 pm.
                      You guys I thought about you the whole time. Hoping that I feel okay the rest of this week.
                      Thank you so much for this support. you are all amazing.

                                • yay!! you made it.

                                  Yup, just sling that thing over your head so it's cross-body, for sleep. DH slept on his back and had his little buddy, Willie, on his stomach. He pushed as much hose as possible into the bag so there wasn't hose everywhere. If you roll on it and it pinches off, the pump will alarm. THAT in the middle of the night can be alarming.

                                      Oh yeah, I planned on it. That is another thing they give you, a blank journal.
                                      Thanks for reminding me!

                                          Yeah, that is what Sue the Nurse said, she had already stuffed a bunch in, I have put more in.
                                          I am a pretty non restless sleeper, so I am hoping it goes without a hitch.
                                          I am keeping it covered in bed, in case one of the Oldsters suddenly gets an attack of the kitty fairys and goes after the clear wiggly worm. LOL glad I do not have a kitten now!
