Chemo Again Tomorrow

Tomorrow is IV chemo day. Trying to get everything prepared. I have to be there at 9:00 am. I got my pills for the next week plus sorted out as best I could, with Captain Obvious' help, so we are on the same page, instead of me being clueless like last time. I also relabeled some of the bottles so that they would not be so intimidating (read: make me vomit just to look at them) and put the other ones where I will not have to see them every time I open that cabinet door (read: make me vomit just to look at them).

I am still up doing laundry to try to start my Mom off with everything in place instead of a big mess. She arrived this afternoon and played with her grandson until dinner. Which freed me up to make crackers (he loves these Olive Oil Crackers), clean the kitchen a bit, do laundry, and make dinner. And play on the computer, of course...hehe. He only had a 30 minute nap today and he fell asleep in Captain Obvious' arms at about 8:20, so we took him up to bed. I wonder how early he will wake up tomorrow. ;)

I have a CT scan scheduled for March 30...we will see what the results are. I hope that this chemo is stopping growth (and would be ecstatic if the tumors were shrinking!) but I am aware that the results could show continued growth. I do not know what the plan is if there is continued growth, but I do not imagine any of it will be fun!

I imagine I will post from the chemo administration place tomorrow. I will try to describe the place and the process, since I realised recently that I have not done that on this blog...but I am not making any promises...who knows how bad I will feel.
