So Far So Good
Well today was my day to take Lisa for Chemo. She had a really good day and chemo wasn't all that bad. We started with check in at 9:30 and then hydration. Once she was hydrated they just kept switching bags of drugs and hydration and after about 8 hours it was time to go home.
In those 8 hours, we spent time painting, doing puzzles, celebrating another patient's birthday, reading books, playing games, taking a nap (Lisa, not me) getting a 10 min massage (me, not Lisa) and numerous trips to the bathroom (all that hydration makes a little girl gotta go).
We're very pleased with U of M/Motts. All the staff are helpful. The areas are very accommodating from Popsicles, to activities, to massages. They really are trying to help make the best of a bad situation.
Lisa was in a great mood and feeling pretty good today. She was up and about and playing. She actually ate both lunch and dinner today!! Yahoo.
Once we got home, we enjoyed a boat ride on the lake. She wanted faster and more bumps. It was definitely a good day.
