I must admit today…

…I am feeling a little bit apprehensive. We are up early in order to try to leave just after 6am and not get caught up in too much rush hour traffic. Much of our time will be spent hanging around in the hospital, waiting for the blood tests results to come through before they can actually make up my medication. At 10’000 dollars per 28 day course, they have to make sure they get it right. The scary bit is, once it gets inside my body, we then just have to wait and see what happens. I will be carefully monitored so any adverse effects can be quickly addressed.

So today will be a long day, the first of six 28 day cycles of treatment.

It is a challenge to think of one thing to look forward to today, but it would be fair to say, getting back home again in one piece sounds attractive. And the one thing I appreciate today is having my husband by my side.

Please pray for me, or send me all your positive vibes.

Thank you
