Thursday 21-01-2016: chemo


Today was chemo 3.0 for Sharon: all went smoothly – only one more left

We left home 0653, drove through local Scottish restaurant for in car breakfast and arrived at Cleveland Clinic main campus at 0742.

There are 3 stages: test & some meds; see oncologist; and then the procedure.

(We saw our oncologist, who made a change to her cocktail…)

Afterwards (2ish) we had lunch at Beardens – food did not taste right to poor Sharon, but was fine for me!  We arrived back home at 1541 and Babe (our rescue/therapy/companion/adult dog) did well in her crate!

Sharon was upbeat, and the staff and facilities fab at the clinic.

Forecast for the next three weeks: down, then up, then one more time
I studied cosmology, mathematical physics, web development and took a coffee break during the drips.

That the nurses wear protective clothing to guard themselves from the chemicals which go directly into her blood stream still gives me pause…

What do you think?
