Three down, five to go!

Whew...what a day!

Each chemo treatment is a new adventure! I'll be so glad when this is over!!! I wasn't sure I would have chemo today as I had a temperature yesterday. I saw the oncologist today and he said my blood work looked good and that he didn't see a off I went to have chemo. While I was sitting there (watching tv) a tornado warning flashed across the screen! EEEK!! For some reason it took 4 1/2 hours for this chemo session (it usually takes between 2 1/2 to 3 hours) but we were in a safe place when the storm hit so maybe there was a reason we were delayed. I've learned over the past couple of years that things happen for a reason and so try not to question when things don't go as planned. I'm just thankful that I was able to have my chemo on schedule and this session left me feeling a bit tired, but feeling good. By the time I left my blood pressure was down and my temperature had fallen to normal. The power of prayer is amazing!!!

Thanks for stopping by! You probably won't hear from me for a few days now, but don't worry....I'll be back soon!

Glad it went well, love, and hope you bounce back quickly. Having a little giggle though - you always have to have *something* to do with the weather in your life, don't you? Earthquakes, tornadoes......! Seriously, though, I'm glad it didn't stop in your neck of the woods nor, I hope, in anyone elses'. Hugs.
