As Dan Townes would say "Chernobyl Shooters"...Fran here with my able nurse Terry Roberts and my trusty dog "Chow-Lee" aka Charlie.
Today was our first day sitting amongst the Cancer crowd...what an experience...I was expecting beautiful lounge chairs...flat screened TV...juice bar...WiFi and maybe Wii...and possible some current newspapers or magazines...mind you these cocktails don't come cheap...low and behold none of the above, only 10 of Archie Bunkers faux Laz a Boy chairs to sit on with pillows that had sat on the laps of the last 20 patients...nothing but an 8 track Boom box...with a sign that said hold your phone call to a bare minimum...rather a bad start for a cocktail. party.
Needless to say.. we are on the lookout for a new Chemo Pub!
On a more serious note...I have weathered the first treatment and am wearing a two day chemo apparatus that I must wear for 46.5 hours. Why 46.5.. must be because of my short hair!
Picture wearing something that looks like a plastic pear with a life line that is attached to a "fuel" valve in your chest. Actually, it looks more like a "mine" that was floating in the open sea to blow up battleships!
Feeling a few of the side effects this evening but for the most part... I feel good!
Again, thank you all for your continued support, love and prayers! We are blessed beyond words with great friends and family!
With love, Theresa and Fran
