My chemo buddy

Today was my fourth round of low-dose chemotherapy infusion to control my Crohn’s Disease, and once again, our dear friend Kelley drove me and kept me company.

The nurses managed to find a vein for the IV on the fourth attempt, but I got to lie down and have my treatment in a semi-private room. The best part of the room was that we could turn the lights down very low as they hurt my eyes. Also, I find it quieter and calmer in there.

Today’s #OneGoodThing was wonderful Kelley taking me for my fourth infusion, which went pretty well. Plus, another patient at the infusion center told me she’s on the same treatment and it started really working for her after her fourth treatment. So fingers crossed it works the same for me too!

Day 319 of 365. And Day 685 in a row!
