2019-09-18 Living with Cancer Day 924

I got up a bit earlier today to be ready for my Chemo treatment. This is my first monthly (every 28 day) treatment after having gone once every week for 8 weeks. After doing my upstairs routine I went downstairs. I did have some heavy sweating that had disappeared for the last 5 days. Also, my stomach did not feel good and would you know I had some dizziness. I therefore had toast for breakfast to have something light in my stomach before taking my regular morning medication. Since there was about an hour before leaving for my treatment, I rested and started to put together my electronic stuff, laptop, power adapters and cables for iPhone and Laptop. In addition, I got some snacks for Dianne and me and Dianne took my medication for 9:00.

After my short rest I started to put together my electronic stuff, laptop, power adapters and cables for iPhone and Laptop. In addition, I got some snacks for Dianne and me. Dianne took my medication for 9:00. It was time to leave.

Today was the first monthly treatment of the Empliciti (ELO), from now on I will go every 28 days. Because of the gap between treatment 7 and 8, the dosage for ELO was increased a bit. In addition to the premeds I also received my dosage of Zometa, which is administered every 28 days and 2 liters of Hydration. For lunch, I had left over pasta and meatballs that Dianne warmed up in the microwave. It was rather good.

After treatment, we went back home. I unpacked my electronics stuff and sorted it out based on subject and date written. Dianne barbecued and for dessert she baked pears with honey and cinnamon.

Having finished dessert, we spend the rest of the evening watching TV before calling it a day.
