Sarah was at her Chemo treatment for about 5 hours today. Treatment was pretty uneventful except that Kendra surprised us (Me, Jimmy, & Dan) at lunch with Paradise sandwiches. She had come from our house which she had been cleaning...ahhhhhhhhhhhh. Sarah and I were so happy to come home to a PRE-Cancer house. With all the visitors and the chaos we haven't been able to really deep clean, so it was really nice to have our house cleaned.....we love you KK. Sarah was armed with magazines, her computer, and tons of movies, but we ended up just chating and hanging out.
After Chemo we came home and where hanging out and our Meals on Wheels (our churches dinner program) brought over Cafe Rio.....Yum Yum.......thanks Wayne and Jason. We just hung out all night and enjoyed Sarahs company. She has been in great spirits this week, and her nausea has been almost non-existent, so she has been wanting to go go go....so it was good to just chill and hang out and enjoy each others company.
Sarah has a two day Chemo treatment that will run for 48 hours, and on Friday she will go back to have her pump removed. She is digging her fanny pack, and keeps looking for things to put in it.......ohhhh great. Atleast I wont have to hold her chapstick anymore.
Dan V. stopped by tonight for a visit and he brought Sarah a Frosty, and alas the first side effect of the Chemo appeared. She was unable to eat the frosty, because the cold temperature made her feel like she was suffocating.....so we have removed all the drinks from the refrigerator so she wont have to touch or drink anything cold.
As a flash from the past I included a pre-cancer pic. For several weeks before the diagnosis that rocked our world this is how I found Sarah on most occasions......she would be laying on the ground cruising facebook...or.... match.com, JK, with an ice pack (or bag of frozen fruit) and Tito laying right next to her with an occassional lick of the ice pack. Tito still prefers to sit next to Sarah and can be found licking her with little doggie kisses.....gross.....I know.....I just barfed in my mouth too.......
