Only one poke this time!

Tuesday was a success!! The nurse got my IV first try!! I wanted to hug her!
Things are going relatively smoothly. Nights are the hardest--when I get worn out and feel yuckiest. Sometimes I have sleepless nights (like last night) and I get weird aches and pains all over from time to time from who knows what--all the chemicals or the cancer or stress. Nothing too unordinary.

Tuesdays are my Huntsman days from now on--to get chemo every week, bone strengthener once a month and see the Dr. from time to time. My white blood cell count has already dropped pretty low, so I get shots for three days after chemo to up my white blood cell counts.

Keepin' positive!! (Thanks to everyone's prayers and help!)

I just ended up on your blog - blog hopping and can't believe I'm leaving a comment since you don't know me... but my mom was given a year to live (from her cancer) and that was 9 years ago! So there is hope!!! Her's was very bad and she did lots of treatments but they didn't think there was anything more they could do because it was throughout her body. Im so sorry that you have to go through all of this and I hope you will have the same success story as we do!!!

Hey girl! I'm so glad the nurse got you the first time! Ask for her every time you go in! You are so amazing and I want to help you in any way I can. Let me know if you need anything...even if it is just Ben & Jerry's! Love to you darling and the rest of your family!!

I've been thinking about you and praying that there would be glimmers amidst the challenges. One poke counts as a great glimmer. Angela's right, ask for that nurse every time.
