I tried to sleep last night, but I couldn’t sleep at all. I was told that one of premeds was steroid that kept me away from sleeping. At 10 am while a nurse was getting ready for chemo through IV, a social worker went over all side effects of chemo: Chemo will not only knock down cancer but also my healthy blood cells. In the result as my immune system goes down, I have to be vulnerable for any infections. For a while I have to stay away from crowds, sick people, children, animals, plants, and even Sushi! The nurse,who also experienced breast cancer long time ago, encouraged me saying, “ You will be OK. Chemo will knock down your cancer.” The chemo took four hours without any reaction or discomfort. During chemo the oncologist came over just to check how I was, and gave me the result of bone scan. IT WAS NEGATIVE!! Thank God!!
As I got home Peggy was waiting for me to deliver trunkful of gifts from Neighborhood church women’s fellowship. I feel like it were Christmas! She said I should open one gift each day because those gifts are to comfort my blue days on chemo. I am truly loved and now I am confident that I can beat this cancer because of our LORD!
