Well, yesterday was a long day, but it went well. They drained three liters off of my abdomen, which is all Dr. McKeen wanted off. If you take too much, it begins to mess up your electrolytes and protein. It was about 9lbs of fluid. I then had an infusion of albumin to replace the protein and them chemo. All went well and we came home. Today, I am sore, but my pain is much better. The fluid was definitely causing most of the pain. I'm just praying it doesn't come back, at least not too fast. I've had a little upset stomach today from the chemo, but not too bad. The first week is usually not bad, it's when it begins to accumulate that it gets worse. But, I am going to think positive thoughts and pray that I do well on this chemo. I have a peace about this and I am trusting the Lord. Sometimes it is minute by minute, but He continues to give me a peace about all of this. He's just not done with me yet.
