Sunday, Oct. 3rd.

Well, readers here it is 16 days since my last post. I apologize. I have wanted to post a blog but was too tired.

Sarah's wedding was beautiful on September 18th. I will add a seperate blog on the wedding if that is ok with you.

On to medical updates. We drove home from the wedding on Sunday the 19th. We missed our exit and dorve almost to Chicago, Il before we could turn around. Argh. So mentally tired.

Monday the 20th, I have a mountain of laundry to do and so much to put away. Randy went out to scour up work. I am to wait for a call from IU Cancer Hospital for admission for chemotherapy. I got the call at 1:00 PM. We got there at 2:00 PM. What a day.

Resident arrived with med student to do medical history. The inevitable IV attempt. Took 3 tries and one blown vein. It's finally in, hope it lasts the week.(it did) Randy left to go back to take care of Cherie. I got my pre meds, anti nausea meds mostly. At 10:45PM I got my first does of chemotherpay. 2 different meds plus the continuous Mesna, to protect my kidneys and bladder, ran 6-8 hours. Ended up sleeping off and on through the night. No nausea.

Dr. Rushing and his entourage arrived around 8:30 AM. Now I have the rest of the day. What to do. The laptop helps alot. They are going to up my chemo each day by 4 hours so by Friday, I can get out by noon.

More to come......
