Day -5 Update – Chemo is a trip

Day -5

Yesterday I received Rituxan and tolerated it very well. Super slow easy day.

Today is one of the “heavy” chemo days, of which I have three more days like this, so a total of 4 “heavy” chemo days.

Today’s first chemo, Cytoxan, was at 11:15-1:15. Then 1000mg of steroids for an hour. And now I’m on another medication, nicknamed rabbit, rATG, which significantly reduces the number of circulating T-cells. It also makes food taste gross but I’m still eating right now. No nausea. No vomiting. No dizziness.

So far so good! Now I am going to try to get some much needed sleep!

  1. Am enjoying your step-by-step information. Keep track of what to do, what not to do, etc because more people will be following in your footsteps soon. You’re a pioneer!! Buh bye, MS!!

  2. You go girl! You are a true hero! My heart goes out to you, you are so brave. I wish you didn’t have to go through such a hardship. But know that we will celebrate when you kick it’s butt!

Let me know what's on your mind!
