you will all be happy to know that I rocked out my first 6 hour chemo treatment today...The nurses found out that they have a wild one on their hands...lol...I talked to them with different accents everytime they spoke to me. I also wore my pink boxing gloves in there, so I could fight cancer.. I told them to schedule my treatments on days when the entertainment was good, but I truly believe they thought I was joking!!!!
It's all fun and giggles right now while I am still feelin "stoned" from the ativan, they wouldn't give me the personal tank of laughing gas that I requested....darn them....I have found that it is very beneficial to entertain the people in charge of my "DRUGS" <-----They give me whatever I want.
Sidenote...I also found out that I could fit two doughnut holes in my mouth at the same time today....I was trying to see how fat my cheeks will look after the prednisone...lol...My best friend came to sit with me for a little bit today and she asked me what kind of food I wanted her to bring and I said Tim Horton's. She was having a very bad day and nothing was working out for her, frustration was setting in....when she ordered my food a gentleman behind her said "kinda hungry today huh" and she replied "no, its for my friend who is in a chemo treatment right now"...this complete stranger got in his wallet and literally gave her all the cash he had to give to me. he had lost both of his parents to Cancer. I couldn't understand why she was so bothered when she first came in the room and saw me she started crying hysterically...I thought oh crap cancer finally became real to her as it did for me, then she told me the story and handed me a wad of $$. <-------This was quite a day for me people!!!!
Now I am in the middle of a personal prayer vigil that I will wake up feelin ok and not "hit by a truck" like they told me I would.
