    chemo starts in 15 hours

    I start my chemo therapy tomorrow morning at 9:15. My personal assault on Cancer will begin...I am armed and ready....Cell phone in one pocket, pringles and g2 in another, samsung tab in one hand and a tiny, soft blanket in the other. But the biggest weapon I will be taking with me to this battle is God. Because with him everything is possible. P.S. I'm also taking my "take no prisoners" attitude. Have a great day and evening everyone! =D semper fi! hooo ra! here we go,,,,I will keep everyone posted.

      Good luck- we will be rooting for you!!! Some of the best encouragement we have had during our journey (with my husband's testicular cancer) has been from the many wonderful women in our church family who shared their experiences with us. It is amazing how many women are survivors! Faith and friends and prayers have carried us thus far and will carry you as well !

      If you are bringing a tablet with you that will allow you to download free apps, appslet me suggest the game "free flow." It seems to be the rage in the infusion room and holy crap...now I'm addicted as well. Best of luck to you, Carm RN.

      We are all wishing you well! Your fighting attitude will take you far. I would suggest bringing something a but more substantial to eat than pringles (a sandwich is a good idea) and plenty of water.

      Best wishes for you! You have a great attitude. I too start chemo this week on Thurs. I'm alittle nervous, but I know God is with me all the time.

      Take Care!

      I will be thinking about you. When you walk out of there, you will already feel a touch of "victory". Each time gets easier and you will soon be calling the infusion staff "family". My good friend who has the same diagnosis as me refer to our chemo days as our day at the Spa!! -- why not? -- with the caring staff, the reclining chair, the warmed blankets, the cold drinks & snacks. I guess you just have to phase out that IV Pole. It is through the power of prayer that the Good Lord has brought me through the storm to where I am today. He will be there with you. Keep the positive attitude -- it is so important in your battle. Let us know how it goes. Good Luck.

      I have a beautiful small stone Icon of our savior that I bring to every single treatment and appointment. I place it right up on the closest table so he watches over me during treatment or appointments. I annoint myself with holy oil obtained from two Monastaries and I bring a small bible that I read. These are all Holy tools in my battle.

      God's speed.

      I do believe the most stressful part is over for you. Can't say the rest is all easy, but it IS doable.
      You've got a great attitude. Can't give you any advice (you didn't ask :) at this point. I will go ahead anyway to remind you to drink drink drink a lot of water. It washes away everything.
      And definitely, any amount of exercise you can squeeze in is to your benefit. You are so good not to forget the God part. All the best to you.

      Good luck to you...you have a great attitude...that will definitely help you..I'm still in the fight, in the beginning of my radiation treatment (had chemo 1st). Every once in a while u may get a little down and or tired. Allow yourself a little down time to recover, it will also help. I still workout whenever I can, I try every other day, instead of every day like I used to. Be well and god bless:)

      Sending you white light to go along with your positive attitude. I accompany my husband to all his chemo appointments and the other patients and staff have become friends & family. We talk, laugh and share how we're feeling. We are all in this together, no matter what cancer we are fighting. Keep your strong faith and positive outlook as both will get you through any rough patches you face. Good luck.
