It Was A Long And Interesting Day

So I left the house at a little after 8:00 this morning after not sleeping well. Got there in a half an hour (I never know what traffic will be like) Had my appointment with Dr Jeske. My CA-125 count is down to 20. Needs to be in the low teens. I'm almost half way though my treatments. Today was #3. So if all goes well sometime in March I should be done.

Then I went to have my chemo. Today was to be Gensar and Carboplatin (not sure of the exact spellings) Gensar went well and then about 15 min into the Carbo. I started feeling funny, got real warm, flashes, and real antsy. My nurse was sitting a little ways from me. I told her I didn't feel good. She came over and stopped the Carbo. The next thing I remember was feeling about 5 or 6 people around me. Someone was holding my hand and patting it, they were taking my blood pressure. Dr Jeske was there. They asked my name and date and other questions. They put in another IV to pump in fluids. I was finally able to open my eyes. Things went back to normal. My nurse told me latter that she was very close to calling a code blue. I guess I scared her. Looking back I guess it should scare me but I don't really remember it so not too scared. Dr Jeske said maybe the carbo is not so good for me but I guess it is a drug that has success with the cancer treatment.

When all that was done the I got 2 units of blood. That went fine but did not get home till after 5:00. So it was a long day.
