Kathy (my mother-in law) and Dave acompanied me today to the chemo session. In preparation for my first treatment, I did research beforehand in books, blogs and websites about what to expect in terms of the chemo itself and side effects.
The nurses at Johns Hopkins (JH) are amazing and make everything much easier. In fact, the treatment was not as tiresome and uncomfortable as I was expecting, so far so good…. I feel great today.
When we came back from JH, I had a nice surprise. A dear friend, her husband and beautiful daugther sent to me a “recovery kit”. This weekend I am relaxing and enjoying the kit that includes a pair of monkey slippers socks since my friend’s daughter likes comfy socks and monkeys, so this is the perfect combination. I love them!
I am very fortunate. I am grateful for having incredible friends and family that inspire me to stay strong and positive all the time.
Thank you for your prayers 🙂
