Today, I went with my mom to her first Taxol chemotherapy treatment, which was 5 hours long. She did very well and did not have an allergic reaction. Tomorrow, I take her back to her doctor’s office for a Neulasta injection. I hope these injections elevate her white blood cell count. Right now it is very low. With this round of chemo, they have her on a cocktail of meds to take at home to try to offset reactions and illness.
I mixed and administered my injection meds tonight and got them done relatively quickly. I can’t wait until Friday to see what party is going on in my ovaries and hopefully a few more follicles have formed in addition to the 10 I had at baseline.
I am holding positive thoughts and high hopes for this cycle. I am looking forward to hearing the words “congratulations, you are pregnant !” That is not too much to ask for ! Four times a charm right? 🙂
