With everything that's going on over in New Zealand, I am happy that your chemo infusion was uneventful. Hydrate, and rest when you can.

Strength, Courage and Peace,

So glad that very first chemo is over. Nerves play such a part in it--that unknown factor. I just had my second chemo yesterday and I am doing well also. What a relief for us both!!!

Yeah for you Dee!!! You got through your first chemo. It's one less to go before you reach the finish line. Keep you eye on the Goal... RECOVERY! You are doing GREAT Dee!

Take care, God bless.

PS Make sure to drink, drink, and drink water or whatever your body takes a liking to.

But then, we knew you would be. So happy that the first one is done. Now you know what to expect and even if the unexpected crops up--you'll handle it. Just take it one step at a time, Dee, and you'll get through it with flying colors!

Praying for those in New Zealand affected by the quake.

Hugs, Renee

Hooray!!!! I am so glad your first infusion was rather uneventful, all things considered!
Please remember to drink water...you need to keep hydrated and flush your system of the chemo. One side effect can unfortunately be constipation, and water helps keep "things" moving!

So HAPPY you got through. Isn't it crazy how we can psych ourselves up and then we get there and it's not so bad after all. I think the hardest part for me was walking through the door as well. Once inside, everyone was SO nice and I made new friends as well. As stated, drink plenty of water and rest when you can. All my best to you sister!!!

The hardest part for me was the first time I sat in that chair!!! I cried just sitting there, it made it all seem so real. But I had the same results you did. I was just tired. It all gets easier from here on out!!!! Good luck!!!!!!!!
