I can’t believe I am here. Is this even real? Chemo day! I am not looking forward to this. I have heard many stories about chemo, some good and some I wish I never heard. I arrived on floor 3 of the cancer clinic just in time to be taken back to the room I will be spending the next 3-4 hours. There are a few other people here getting their treatments, but overall it is pretty quiet here. Carol is the nurse assigned to me. She is quite nice and very helpful. After taking my seat and having everything explained to me, it is time! Nurse Carol takes my blood pressure and begins the IV. Everything seems to be going well until about half way through the treatment and I start to feel light headed. The next thing you know I am face down in a bowl. I’ll save you all the details, but let’s just say it wasn’t pretty. The nausea feeling lasted the remaining time at the clinic and even followed me home. I returned home and was welcomed by my amazing family. Their love and support gives my strength and motivation to forge ahead. I’m looking forward to the rest of this process, but I am determined to fight for my life.
