So, today I fly to Texas for my 9th treatment. I have a heavy week ahead of me. I get chemo on Thursday and fly home Friday. Then I changed my schedule for next week so that I could be home for Jamie's birthday. I will fly again on Monday with my Mom, have chemo on Tuesday and fly back Tuesday night. This will be the first week that I will fly home on the same day as chemo. I think it will be good because I have been doing well on the day of chemo. It's the next two to three days that I don't feel well. So, this way I can be home in my own bed. The good part, is that I will be home for 8 days before I have to fly out again.
I also woke up with a sore throat yesterday and this morning I have a full blown nasty cold. Not a good time to have a cold when I am getting chemo so close together. So, if you would please pray that everything goes smoothly.
On another note, my Mom's aunt called her this week with good news. She is friends with someone that works for Mercy flights, which is funded by the American Cancer Society to fly cancer patients for treatment. She called my Mom this week and told her that they would fly me and another person to Texas on them. I will have to fly with Delta, which means a layover in Atlanta, but it will start once I am not going every week. We were already booked for the next three trips, so it will start after that. What a blessing that was. Plane tickets have gone way up in price this month with summer around the corner. All we have to do is tell her the dates we need to fly and she takes care of all the booking.
Ian will be going with me today and the kids will be here with my Mom and my aunt Lauren. We will be missing my Nana's 87th birthday party, but will be thinking of everyone while we are gone.
Keep the prayers coming this week and pray that my blood work stays good so that I can get my chemo treatments as planned.
