Welcome to my blog dedicated to my Journey with Teal....Ovarian Cancer. This blog is where I will make updates to my treatments and tests....hoping to keep blog friends updated and answer any questions from visitors. I did not pick this journey, but am doing the best I know how to walk strong and gracefully, with my Lord's continual strength!

Ugh!

Let's start with the good news! The nurses were able to do the treatment on my port and after an hour and a half, the blood started to flow! Yeah! Now they know that I am growing like a scar inside the tubing, but they can dissolve it!
I am tolerating the new chemo good so far. Really no side effects...but of course, I have only had it one day so far!
Why the ugh? I am exhausted. No, I mean really exhausted. I have slept 4 hours today and I am still tired. Yesterday was a 15 hour day with the driving. I had blood pressure, ekgs, and blood draws every half hour for 4 hours, then every hour for 4 hours, then every 2 hours for 4 hours. Plus I could not leave the chemo office. I couldn't even go outside. Those kind of days wear me out. And I do it again tomorrow. (Is there a word for whining???)
Oh how I pray this stuff works.
Anyways, that is why I have been MIA.
I hope all of you are having a great week and NOT at the doctor's office! But thank God for them.

You have every right to whine. I will whine for you. I can really do that well. Can you lay down while you are getting the treatment? Can you sleep during it? Do you want to sleep during it? I am very naive in this sort of thing. I just hope you feel better soon.

My Dear - you go right ahead and whine. That was an incredibly long day - for anyone! DId Leonard stay with you? I hope you are in the middle of a good book, or project that you can take with you.
And what a plus that the nurses figured out the port situation. YAY!
This is going to work! POSITIVE THINKING! And lots of prayer - but you have so many of us out here praying for you CeeKay that God is bound to get tired of hearing from all of us. :)
Keep us posted on how tomorrow goes. For now - go back to that beautiful bedroom of yours with your little Bentley and just sleep . . .

Big giant hugs! Karen

Ceekay, if I were going through what you are going through, the whining would be so loud, you'd hear it through your computer monitor. I'm praying that this treatment will be a miracle for you. I'll say special prayers that tomorrow won't be as bad as today sweet friend. laurie

Ceekay,
I think you are entitled to whine as much as you want to. Your day sounds like it would be very exhausting. I will be joining you in praying that your new treatments do the job.

Hugs,
Kim
