Chemo week one is officially DONE! Unfortunately, got another sneaky surprise yesterday that we weren't aware of. I may of gotten rid of my wolf pak for the next 2 weeks during my lab weeks, but then they slapped an "on body injector" on me for the weekend. Basically, I am supposed to get a shot at the end of my chemo weeks to help my white blood count since they will be pretty bad. I was initially told this was a shot I would get on fridays before I left treatment. NOPE! The shot apparently can't go in until saturadyas, to which they are obviously closed, so they put this lovely contraption on your arm (on the other side of my picc line....my poor right arm). They then prick you with the needle while your there, then 27 hours later since the needle is still in, it shoots my shot in my for a duration of 45 minutes. Apparently, its too rough if it's put in any faster. So, I will have this thing beeping at me later today and shooting me full of more meds BUT at least I can take it off after its dispensed and somewhat have a normal night sleep....aside from my picc line (that thing can't come out soon enough).
