My sister, Yvonne, had her surgery today. The preliminary report is very good. The doctor doesn't think her lymph nodes are involved. This is the very best of news! She had a lumpectomy and will have to have radiation, but no chemo. Needless to say, we are all very happy!
Today was my 3rd day following my chemo infusion on Friday. I had been told the 3rd day would probably be the worst. Well, if this is the worst, bring it on! I had a great day. We visited my Mother in Trenton, then came back through Gainesville so I could get my neulasta shot (to boost my immune system). We did a little shopping before finally getting home about 4:30 p.m.
I realize the effects of the chemo may become cumulative, so I'm not truly expecting such good results every time. But we have prayed, haven't we, that I would get through this without a lot of trouble? So, I am just accepting each day as a gift and know that whatever the next day brings, my needs will be met.
Tomorrow I go for my first physical therapy session. I am moving pretty well but still have nerve damage. I'm hoping the PT will help revitalize those nerves and I'll be able to use my left arm normally soon.
Good night, and God bless you all.
