Hi Sisters in Pink,
Tomorrow I go for round four of chemo and as most of you know I don't do we'll with it. After my last round I am really dreading going tomorrow and being so sick again. I am worried that like last time I will end up again in the hospital with problems breathing and wish this was just all over.
I would like to request the pink bus because I need all you strong incredible women by my side tomorrow to give me the courage and strength I need to get through yet another horrible round. You are all truly my inspiration through this journey and don't know how I would of ever gotten this far without all of you so thank you so much!
Lots of hugs
Christine

prayers and positive thoughts for you dear Sister. Chemo is cumulative, so symptoms
and side efforts that you've experience early on .. increase as chemo infusion
therapy continues.

Please consult your Oncologist or his RN and see if they have any information,
helpful hints or medication for you.

Strength, Courage and HOPE for a Cure.

Christine--Count me in on the pink bus! I echo Vicki Sam--ask
onc. or nurse if they have any suggestions for helping you get
through this! I'll bring peppermint tea--yummy this time of year!

I'll be on the bus.I hope things are better for you this time.No problems.I have heart problems and if I would've needed chemo I worried about my heart beating out of sorts.I've have known to have my heart rate up to 150 beats per minute.Very very scarey.

My sister has her fourth and final chemo treatment Friday.She's had it pretty easy but one treatment she was up over 40 hours.She couldn't sleep. Of course she has no hair which worries her but I told her it will grow back.

Prayers to you for a uneventful chemo treatment.Hoping your body can tolerate it this time.If I remember years ago my friend had heart problems with chemo and they gave her a sedative before her treatments.She was terrified and her heart went out of whack. Everyone is different though.AND there are so many different chemos.

Save me a seat, I'll be there also. Think we'll also join you in the chemo room - lots of extra pink support! Praying it's easier for you tomorrow! I agree, let your onc know about the problems you are having.

Hugs & Prayers,
Debi

So much for bringing out the pink bus and riding along with me, just knowing you we're all there meant so much.
Yesterday was crazy woke up to 9 inches of snow and no power, tress down and a big mess! Called office to see if chemo was still on schedule and girl at answering service first told me office was closed till Monday and said oh no wait its a delayed opening they will call you after 11 and tell you what time to come in, my appointment was at 9:00. By 9:45 I called again and wouldn't you know there was no delayed opening and they were waiting for me. Didn't get there till 10:30 than of course had trouble getting Iv line in cause I have poor veins ended up being there till 5:30pm!
Have power back now thankfully so I am not freezing anymore. Was up all not with stomach cramps and going this morning for my first of three neupogen shots. Should be getting really sick by tomorrow morning :(
Thanks all for being there hope you are all doing well and I well keep you posted if I survive this round lol

Lots of hugs
Christine
