Cycle 1 - Infusion 2 DONE!
2 down, 1 more to go in my first cycle of chemotherapy infusion. My platelets took a nose dive which is not so good because the risk of infection increases. However, on a positive note this also means that I am responding to the Gemzar :) The best news is that I gained 3 lbs since last Friday! Not surprising - I am definitely not experiencing a loss of appetite. I am eating small portions frequently (well, actually constantly) during my waking hours. If i'm awake - i'm eating! Today my taste buds were delighted with some culinary gifts from my dear friends, Marianne and Roxanne. Marianne suprised me with her home-made chicken salad and she even packaged small individual portions for me! And Roxanne surprised me with some wonderful home-made asian soup. Yummm-O! The flavors are delectable! My 3rd infusion for this 1st cycle is scheduled for is next Friday and then I have a break until 8/27/2010. Thank you for all your prayers, healing energy and words of encouragement.. and of course, ALL the good foods!! :)
