I know your anxiety must be very high right now!!!
I am thinking of you everyday–I have your daily schedule by my computer, hoping all goes well each day.
I know you have your first meeting today with Paula–I am guessing that they will be going over everything coming up within the next few weeks.
I want you to know I am thinking of you every day, hoping that things go well for you.
Did you settle in to your new home-away-from-home?
Take care, sweetie, and say a hello to Sophie. Her nerves must be as much shot as yours are…
Keep us up on what’s going on with you.
And when the nausea comes on from the Cytoxan, (they always give me
32mg of Zofran when they infuse me), make sure they keep giving you the anti-nausea meds. And if you are too sick to take anything by mouth, then they have anti-nausea suppositories that will do the job–they definitely work, (I keep some on hand here, Tigan suppositories that work).
Make sure they try to keep the nausea away, (see if they can give you the Marinol since you know that works well), and see that they keep you out of pain.
Will you be allowed to work on your lap-top, to keep your mind on other things, while you are in quarantine? Hope so…
All the best,
