I really dislike taking the steroids before the chemo. I know that they are supposed to help me fend off any allergic reaction that might be hovering over me after the poison enters my veins...but...they pretty much keep me up all night!! I was still awake at 4:15am this morning! I finally dozed off and then Dan woke me up at about 6:20am as everybody has to be out of the house by 7:30am at the latest! I had 4 whole days and still forgot to wash Nathan's uniform pants...(he used to have two pairs of pants....but we wont' talk about the "high quality" of fabric that they use to make these $28 pants...that he blew out the knees already!!!!). Anyway, they are on quick wash and hopefully they'll dry quickly too. He can always wear his uniform shorts...it's 58 degrees right now...but it will be close to 75 at least by the time I pick them up from school.
My last chemo is at 8:00am. I'm anxious and thrilled at the same time. I'm so glad it will be over...but at the same time...it's hard to voluntarily (technically) go there when I know what the next week will bring.
I started that special Christmas Novena to St. Andrew yesterday. I bet you can guess what my intentions are!!!
