|Sitting by me so we can watch GLEE!|
I think Lisa was looking forward to the visit as well. She beat Gary and I to the cancer center. Although in our defense Duffy was a difficult dog in the morning. He doesn't do rain and getting him to poop was an ordeal. Ah, the joys of having a furry member of the family in your life. Gary stayed long enough for the nurses to get me hooked up and preMeds started.
Just like last time all the set up and preMeds took until about 11am. This treatment because I had handled the Rituxan well I did not have to be on a pump. It made my 99 trips to the bathroom much easier. After the Rituxan was started we decided to watch the last two episodes from season 1 of GLEE, less than a week until the new season and all. GLEE, lunch, a chemo drip and your BFF - Life is Good!

It sounds like my next rounds will all be between 6 and 7 hours. Better than that first 9 hour day but still a long day in the chemo chair. Judy the nurse who encouraged me to run in the Crim gave me a nice warm hat to sleep in and to generally keep my balding head warm. Lisa and I packed up all our entertainment. Chemo makes you feel like a toddler with ADHD. I pack a lot of stuff just in case I get bored. I am actually starting to wish the Benadryl did knock me out for a little nap. Because it was getting close to 4:30pm, we decided to just meet Gary on his way home from work and headed that way. We decided to camp out at Panera. It gave us a chance to talk a little more and for me to pick the kids up some of their favorite bagels. It was a long day but a good one.
