It's True

We have finally started cycle 5 of chemotherapy!  It's hard to believe, but true.

We started the day off in the Day Hospital, the "faster way to get chemo started" and then transfered to the floor around 4:00.  Averi will be getting a constant drip of one chemo medicine for 7 straight days.

The other one, which is a new one, is given for an hour for the first three days.  It can affect her blood pressure so that has to be checked every 15 minutes while the medicine is being given.  As it turns out, they decided to start it during her nap time, so she will get to endure 5 blood pressure reads while trying to sleep.  Yipee. :)

I know I will probably be less excited next week when/if she gets sick, but at least we are getting it behind us.  Only one more treatment after this one!

I'm glad that it finally has started. I want to know if you are really yelling at the doctors and telling them how you really feel or just thinking it?
