Chemo 101

Chemotherapy. The dreaded word. The dreaded treatment. A word synonymous with horrific side affects and loss of hair — though hair loss obviously isn’t Matt’s greatest concern! But still, a treatment that states without a doubt that you have cancer.

Matt began the dreaded treatment today. Anti-nausea meds were followed by a  two hour drip of drugs one and two combined. Later, instruction was given as a pouch/pump was attached  to slowly administer drug number three over the next two days. Five hours later we were finally heading home.

Thus far it has been wonderfully anti-climatic. I know by tomorrow night he might be experiencing side affects. I know there are accumulative effects to consider. But for today it’s been such a relief and blessing to see none of the possible initial side affects or reactions pushing their ugly heads to the surface.

One chemo treatment at at time. One day at a time. God’s grace is sufficient.

    >Rosie and Matt I'm Jen's Aunt Sandy from Sarnia my husband is Larry. We met at the wedding. Although I don't "know" you, I feel as I do through your blog…. where you've shared your heart. I'm a sister in Christ to you both, and please know that from the time Jen and Joe told us about Matt's cancer, you've all been in our prayers.
