It's all good

I think the surgery yesterday was a blessing in disguise. I was so sleepy from the sedative that I slept all day and then slept all night (first time I have done that in weeks). I woke up feeling refreshed and full of energy - Let's go! When we walked into the chemo room John looked around at all of the reclining chairs and said "oh it is just like getting a pedicure!". Well almost. My chemo treatments should only take 2 hours from now on and really how much can you get done in two hours? I read a magazine, talked to a friend on the phone, chatted with the nurses (who were awesome!) and then I was done. It was exactly like the oncologist said " that first day it will just feel like water is going in your veins". I am getting the big expensive shot of Neulasta on Monday and have a checkup on my white count next Friday. If all goes according to plan I will be back at chemo on February 12th wearing one of my cute hats that I bought.

One down - 5 to go.
