Ok folks - I realized I've been a bit MIA on the blog. Mainly because I haven't been doing much other than sitting around. Not very exciting to blog about! lol!
So here's how my week has been!
Tuesday I had round #2 of Ipi. The appointment started with having to be there around 8:30 in the morning having blood drawn. Then it was off to see the nurse and Dr D for a check up. No major issues. Of course they ask how I'm doing and what's new. My only response was "you know... just a little surgery..."
Then it was then time to wait again. I've gotten really good at the waiting game! When finally I was called I thought it was to go back for treatment (my treatment was supposed to start at 11 - but basically after I've seen the doctor and my blood work is back they can start). False alarm - they were just setting up my next treatment (Nov 6th).
Finally got called back for treatment. I got my IV in and sat down for 90 minutes of a drip. I started to down some count chocula (don't judge! you know you love it). It was pretty much a non-event except that the poor girl next to me had an allergic reaction to her drug. Scary moment and enough to almost give me a panic attack! But they took care of her pretty quickly. It only took about 5 minutes before she turned completely red and couldn't breathe. Scary!
I had Jake take this picture of me. Actually I had him take it 3 times... It's still a bit fuzzy and this is when we decided he wasn't much of a iPhoneographer! lol!
So far no major side effects from the Ipi. Some nausea and fatigue. That's about it.
That's it for now! Below are some pictures I've taken over the last few days.
I've also booked a flight home to Minnesota Oct 25-30th. That will put me at 3 weeks since surgery so I should be moving around well!
