Chemo cycle #4 ! (Followed by a roaring, I mean ‘rolling’ good time!)

Today went well, and so far the anti-nausea medications are working – I even went to bunco and stayed until past 11 p.m.!  I didn’t win any money but I am rich already with my bunco friends 🙂 .  I was at the hospital about 5 hours today.  My son, Curtis and his girlfriend Rachael visited for about an hour, and then two friends from my Bible study stopped by, plus my friend, Maggie, who drove me stayed all day so it was a chatty room ,and fortunately they allowed visitors to stay with me.  That  always helps to pass the time!  I documented our day there here in these pictures.  I am enjoying feeling good while it lasts, but I never expect that to last for long any more.

As we drove home and swung into the Pentagon parking lot to pick up a third rider so that we could drive in the HOV lanes, we pulled up and there was Tim!  “Hey! Tim!” , I yelled and waved.  He didn’t recognize the car because it was Maggie’s, and he didn’t recognize me in my new short wig.   He almost ignored us, until it dawned on him who I was!  Pretty funny at the time. I’m sure it amused his new friend in line with him WHY he didn’t know who his wife was!  Actually I pull out a new wife on him nearly every day with a new look of some kind.  Poor guy.

Thanks for your prayers!  I feel them already!  I will update in a couple of days and let you know how I’m feeling.

Tonya gets ready to connect IV to my port in my arm

Tonya gets ready to connect IV to my port in my arm - this doesn't hurt at all. I put Lidocaine cream on the skin hours before.

The IV is now connected

The IV line is now connected to the port which keeps my veins from having to poked and prodded each week. The port is surgically buried under the skin.

Three neon green drug bags arrive for my IV - this is just one of them

  1. Koryn,

    Thanks for sharing the photos. You look great. It’s great to see Curtis in the pictures as well. My how he’s grown. And what a great bunco crowd, that’s awesome! I will continue to pray for you. I know about what you’re experiencing as my mother is battling this same cancer. Get all the rest you can, when you can. God bless you and those you are helping you through this.

    Love, Delberta
