And So It Begins


Recommended Posts

Kasey's Chemo (Day 1) is set for this Thurs at 9am. Good thoughts please. I'm sure he'll handle it better than I!

 

The rest of his schedule is set for 2 more rounds, expected to happen on Day 8 and Day 15. Let's eradicate this cancer shall we?

You will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same, nor would you want to. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

We're home. It could not have gone better. Kasey is such a superstar. He always is under these medical circumstances. Got a little something in my eye watching the techs prep him and stuff - it's amazing how he always knows people are here to help him and readily accepts it. Amazing boy.

 

Overall it took 5 hours, chemo itself took 20 mins and I was with him every step of the way. Interestingly, what I never thought of was handling his poop with gloves and watering down his pee area after he's done because of the toxicity (how little of it there may be). Since I don't have a fenced area, I think I'm relieved of that duty since he's walked. It will be raining off and on again until Sunday so that'll help a wee bit!

 

So first round of doxorubricin is over and done with. He pranced over in the elimination yard after his treatment looking like a 5 year old and did both 1 and 2 very happily LOL. Clearly he was feeling pretty good. He WOLFED down his plain hamburger, and refused his fries! He's resting comfortably behind me. He drank a whole bowl of water when we got home which was odd since he received fluids all morning. I've been sent home with a bag of meds and a fun schedule. Next appt is next Friday, a shorter round but a round nonetheless. Waiting on the all clear to give him his gabapentin, the only drawback of the day was a weak hind-end whenever he was standing. I could run a pharmacy out of my house now though. :)

Thank you all for your thoughts!
