Yes, that’s right! I am STILL Here in the hospital. They moved my room so now I am officially in the “Oncology Tower”.
I am starting Chemo here at St. Joes. I don’t have specific times as originally scheduled with SW Oncology, but it sounds like it’s within the same timeframe. The good news is that since I am an inpatient, I will be receiving chemo in my own room and can have more than one visitor at a time. I’m a little nervous since this will be the first round, but also hopeful that this will help to stop the spreading of the cancer.
It’s crazy to think it’s almost been a month now since I have been diagnosed. The time over the past weeks have flown by. I feel so much more knowledgeable on the situation and now at least feel like we are moving forward. I guess then it’s just a matter of time before we know if we are progressing forward.
I am starting to get frustrated not being able to do everyday normal things (ie., being completely dependent on people bringing me food, running my errands, etc.) I hate the fact that I haven’t been able to go to Pilates and Yoga or the Village. I really miss my glasses of wine. I am hoping that I won’t be too sick from the chemo and I can take a day when I get out to just do something really fun. All I ever do or think about anymore is this cancer. I haven’t even started reading all of the literature yet! Being locked up in this hospital room makes me feel very safe, but at the same time… a little batty. I haven’t been outside since last Thursday! My only communication to the outside world is friends, sometimes TV and the internet (when it’s working). Let’s hope that I am able to leave tomorrrow afternoon/night after the Chemo treatment so I can sleep in my own bed and give my kitty cats a huge hug!
