Day 1 of cycle 2

Today I started my second round of Chemo - I go for 3 days in a row, this day being the longest (It was about 3.5 hours) and the next 2 days are just about 1.5 hours. I met with my Oncologist first, who seemed to be quite pleased as to how I was responding to treatment.

I was very anxious today/yesterday, as this time I was not an "inpatient" and it all happens a little differently.

Thanks to all my drivers and companions today - My dad drove me to Barrie, Jill spent the day with me and Marci drove me home

Jill and I had big plans of game playing today, but managed to only get one game of backgammon in. I did reign victorious, but there will be several re-matches in the near future I am sure... Thanks Jilly for making the day fly by.

This chemo stuff is tiring....and I'm feeling a little useless on the homefront as I have no energy to watch Riley's soccer game or celebrating the last day of school tomorrow ~ Colin and Jenny will be my heros and pick up the slack...
Although a short day of chemo tomorrow, they sprang a surprise appointment @ Sunnybrook hospital @ 3p.m. to meet with a radiologist - so a busy day again... I need to go to bed!


  1. Sleep tight, Kelly Kel..... may the lows be short lived and the highs feel like forever --- Put my name on the list for a backgammon challenge.
    xo, c

  2. You deserve to rest, you have been and are going through a lot. The good news, the days do pass, some days just take forever. Just wondering if you have tried on a blond wig?
    Take Care, Paula
