Tuesday January 25, 2011
Some nights sleep is an interesting experience. I am awake and asleep, awake and asleep. Not restful at all.
So we are off to chemo. I have to be there at 1:40.
Arrived on time and the waiting room for the Cancer Center is full. They didn’t call me till 2:15 to have my blood work. Now we wait for the results. We meet with Dr Stephanie (my Chemo Oncologist). We meet at 3:15.I was scheduled to meet with her at 2:40. (I guess it is always running behind at the center).
We discuss changing from the nausea medicine that made me soo ditsy and drugged.
I will not be having this drug this week and we will see how I do without it. (As far as getting nauseous).
I still am having the two nausea medicines before the chemo that I took last week besides the one that drugged me. One is a steroid (which may make me a little ditsy) and another nausea medicine.
Chemo was supposed to be at 3.
All my numbers from my blood work are perfect.
Dr. Stephanie is very impressed with this and tells Melodie whatever we are doing is assisting. (Boy that is a big one from a doctor!)
Remember there are 3 Stephanie’s now. The doctor, the pharmacist and myself.
So now I am on to the Chemo treatment.
One takes 40 minutes and the other 1 hour.
I am in one of the rooms (none of them have doors). It has a recliner and a chair in it. (I never recline). Johnny goes to the cafeteria to now have dinner as we missed lunch!
Good thing I brought a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for lunch...Having it for dinner as it is late and I have not eaten.
As I am sitting looking out the window I see many Angels flying in the clouds.
I hope you all are watching the skies. You can see many wondrous things in the clouds and skies.
Melodie does Reiki on me when I am having my chemo treatment.
It is wonderful to have the two of us as Reiki Masters working together on my breast cancer!
We didn’t get out of there till 6:15.
So now my shot for tomorrow has to be at 6:15, not 5 as planned, it has to be 24 hours after the chemo. The shot is for my white blood cells to rebuild them.
This was a full afternoon. My next chemo is at 12:20 in two weeks. So I’ll see if that is any quicker.

Oh yes the steroid made me a little ditsy. It was gone by 9 last night.
I did take my other two medicines for nausea before I went to bed last night. I didn’t sleep well, I think they wire me. That still is better then being nauseous and throwing up.
I had a Reiki treatment from Melodie.
Johnny and I went to the Cancer Center and got there at 6pm.
The door was locked and an orderly was coming out the side door so he let us in. (synchronized).
We went up stairs and into the Chemo room. Only one nurse was there, the same one that was there last night with us.
I get my shot and we leave.
It is now 6:30 and we are off to the grocery store. I never thought I would look forward to grocery shopping. It felt so good to do some-thing so normal!!!!
It was the perfect time also. It was dinner hour so the store was empty.
This was a good thing not as many people (not as many germs).
I always wipe down the cart with the wipes they have at the front door. This also helps me with the germs.
We got home around 7:30.
Yahoo something outside the house….
I slept great.

My girlfriend Julie came over at 11am. She cut my red wig some more in the front and it looks real now. It was too full in the front before.
We then went up to my healing room and I did a reading for her and she did Reiki on me. We got to visit and catch up. Girl time, it is so good!
Julie, thanks for all the care you take with me!
Julie left around 1:30.
It is lunch time now….
Jackie, my girlfriend had made us soup so we had it for lunch today (our big meal). It was delicious.
Thank you Jackie for the soup and the love you share so openly!
I just did some small things around the house and rested on and off the rest of the day.

We are home and I am tired today.
I was getting ready for my shower and noticed hair in my cap/hat.
So Johnny shaved my head. My hair was starting to fall out.
This way I don’t have to see or deal with it falling out for days on end.
I checked it out in the mirror and the back of my head it looks just like Ryan’s (my 11 year old grandson). Now I know where he gets that circle in the back of his head...we both have
I have been taking my nausea meds as needed. When I take both of them I am more tired.
Johnny went to Sacred Circle and Stanley (our Maltipoo) stayed home.

A Photo from the Cause: Turn Face book Pink
What a wonderful sunny day. It is in the 40's and crystal clear and bright! I feel good today.

Good Morning World,
I am doing great today. Yesterday seems to be the day of rest! I slept on and off all day and night. The 4th day after Chemo seems to be my resting day. Today I will do some of my fun things. Have a fun and adventurous day.

Thursday and it is rainy outside but I am home.
I got a call from my Chemo nurse yesterday that I needed to come and get my shot for the white blood cells today (Wednesday) after 4. It must be in a certain time frame or it throws off the Chemo schedule.
So with my blond wig on that looks just like my hair off I go. Johnny was playing at Twigs last night for their 1 year anniversary. So he went there and I went and got my shot at St. Al’s.
I got home around 5:30 after stopping at bank to take care of business. (Now I know why it is spelled that way… (busi ness).
Nicole, Melodie and Ali all were coming over to visit and keep me company.
I did take my nausea medicine around 2pm after Johnny had to go to another Walgreen’s to get it. Another whole story! LOL
I have discovered that that particular one makes be ditsy. DRUGGED! LOL
It takes about 4 hours and than I guess I become funny. So I only have one more of those to take tomorrow and those are done. I will take it early in day.
Have a wonderful day filled with all you can imagine.

(They said I have a great Heart...LOL We all knew that.
So not really thinking about the test, I had taken the book The Great Shift to read while waiting. I was reading from the part by Kryon, who is here in magnetic service. I do forget the energies some times...LOL
I went in the the room with the machine which uses atomic energy mixed with my blood which they have draw and now mixed together. I was hooked up the the cable lines that look the same
as on an EKG. They don't work. The technician gets new rubber ends 3 different times and none of them work. He then reboots the entire system. Again NEW lead wires and rubber tabs. NOTHING..I Reiki the machine and am talking to Spirit silently. I am on a time frame of my chemo at 10:30. and this test is only supposed to take 20 minutes. It is now 9:10. Finally the Tech goes and gets the Doctor and he then gets different lead wires that look different also. New rubber tabs and it starts.
Now this whole time I am lying on the thin narrow table waiting.
The machine rotates and I am now inside. I look at the pictures on the ceiling of the hot air balloons. Pretty, and I notice the numbers on them....27, 11, 9, 25 very interesting..Very Spiritual. I started meditating, I am almost in a deep state and I am asked to move, inside the machine which is totally around me and very close quarters. Again I start to meditate. In comes pure white Light. I am very familiar with Spirits energy. Now the PINK Light of Quin Yin
It was the most soft color pink I have seen in a long time..GENTLE and Loving.
I do Love Spiritual work....
The test is finally over and we (Johnny and I) walk over to the Cancer Center. (2 building over) and it was cold!
First I meet the nurse for the Chemo, than the Dietitian is waiting to talk to us also as I had many questions for her and Melodie (also a Reiki Master, Shaman and Herbalist) is with us and got to talk to her also as I am on an Herb regime.
Next off to have more blood taken for lab work up. This will happen every time I go to have Chemo. Back to room. They have me order lunch and off to meet with the Nurse Practitioner to go over all the procedures for the Chemo. Back to room and receive my lunch. (good Soup).
Waiting for the lab results and the pharmacist comes in and we talk. They have 3 pharmacists just for the Cancer Center and hospital patients that need Chemo.
Her name is Stephanie, we talk about that and how Dr Stephanie Hodson (my Chemo Oncologist) and her have the same middle name also. Brooke...Now there are 3.
So what do you think about that? Any insights for me????
Spirit does work in fun and adventurous ways...LOL.
At 2:05 we finally start the Chemo. Oh, yes they DO give me medicine for nausea and vomiting first.
We leave the Cancer Center at 4:25.
This was a long day and very adventurous. Spirit always keeps thing entertaining.
So today I am HOME .. I am glad.
Tomorrow I just have to go and get a shot to rebuild the white blood cells at 9:30. that is doable.
Feel free to write or call.
They say ( I still want to know who they are?) if, and I don't buy into this, I were to get sicker..nausea it unusual happens on the 4th - 7th day. I do have meds that I do plan on using. Nothing worst than throwing up!
Oh, yes Monday I did cut my hair...So now I have red hair or blonde or black...FUN!
Have a Happy, Bright, Joyful day and tell someone you love them!
Thank You all for being in my Life!!
Wear PINK for support.
