I met with Dr. Dent on Sept. 24. Patty and Moe Moe came with me. I don't know what I'd do without my sisters and my daughter, Michelle.
She went over chemo treatment. I would have chemo every 2 weeks for 16 weeks. She went over all the possible side effects. Dear Lord, give me strength. From nausea, losing my hair, fatigue, loss of taste, diarrhea, fever, infection, very low white blood cells.....a lot of this was a blur and a week later, I am still confused.
I had an echocardiogram on Sept. 28 at the General in the morning (to make sure my heart is strong enough for chemo) followed by a chemo information session at the Irving Greenberg cancer centre across town at the Queensway in the afternoon. Between appts. I went to work for a few hours. Barb came to the information session with me which included a visit to the chemo floor. Very nice and open and bright and kind people everywhere........as it should be when one has cancer. I had to pay twice for parking, once at each hospital.
Which brings me to, well, parking. Paying $14. for parking each time I visit is one thing, but to pay twice in one day. It's not my fault I have appts. at two different hospitals. Can't they let you use a day pass between hospitals? Apparently not. Man, one can go broke, which I am already, but still.......
