Rituxan round 2

on March 4, 2014

I had my first Rituxan infusion (round 2) last Wednesday. The day was long but I was very happy with my nurse. She knew what she was doing and she even found my vein right away.

Hubby stayed with me as always and I’m grateful he always keeps me company. We watched a lot of court shows, smacked our heads and laughed at the cases. I ended up stayed awake the whole time and I was exhausted but at least I was entertained.

I almost forgot how having chemo felt like, I couldn’t get up the next two days. My body felt like it was being pulled down into my bed. It’s been 6 days since my treatment and I’m barely starting to feel nauseous. I hope it doesn’t go through, since I only have over a week till my next treatment.

Until today though, I have to say I’ve been feeling the best I’ve felt in a long time. I think outside if the side effects, the treatment lasted me about 6 days symptom free.

Looking at the bright side of things, today is not over yet. There is still enough time to turn this day around. I’m looking up to God and just relying on His grace for strength and endurance for today.
