Thursday was round two of chemo treatments. As Reedo says, 2 down, 6 to go! While round 1 got the best of Cindy, she seems to be handling round 2 just a little better. Her blood counts were up, as well as her energy and mental state. She was ready to enter the ring this time without hesitation, gloves on and prepared to do battle. What a gal! She received a second shot of Neulasta which is to help keep her white blood cell count from becoming deficient.
It has been two days since the treatment. She is tired, a bit sick and generally feeling crappy, but she does not feel like she was hit by the mack truck she was hit by last time. Two days down. Just a few more days and she should be on the up swing again.
Erica was here and got to go to treatment with her. What a delight. Talk ab0ut a bit of sunshine in a dreaded task. Connie Bailey taught Cindy a new crochet stitch. Cindy and Reed are back into her own beautiful bedroom, and with all things considered life is, as Parker says, "doin good".
Erica and Cindy are showing their sad faces after just pining on our "Cancer Sucks" pin. Now "sucks" is a word I generallly refrain from using. I don't like it. But in this case, it just seems appropriate!
