Today the plan is that I go to the hospital to Oncology for a Muga test. Sounds interesting huh? Apparently, these drugs that are about to be put into my body have of the many other side effects, the ability to do damage to one's heart muscles. So the purpose of this test is to get a "movie" of your heart at work and it will be done throughout the treatments to make sure there is no damage being done.
The test itself should only take an hour or so and then I meet with my Chemo nurse and she goes over with me how to prepare for tomorrow ,the big day when I have my first treatment.
And then I'm going to the KOA Campground where my mom plays around as a supervisor during her retirement years to take some pictures to update their website. Those plans might be canceled as it sure looks like rain today and I think the chances are 50% but we shall see. And then I'm going to work.
This could be my last day of work for a while. I hate to have to go back on medical leave at this point as work as been good to me, my savior really but I just don't see how I'm going to be able to work. Even if I get through the treatments without much sickness and I am not so very fatigued there are those little things called germs that I'd be exposing myself to by being around a bunch of people and our office is definitely in a bigger store around a bunch of people.
MY boss is not fond of the idea either but honestly I don't know how I'm going to continue. And that ticks me off! The Chemo Dude didn't forbid me, he just told me that he was pretty sure I'd not be able to. So, I'm going to wait until after this first treatment and see what happen. He says that we'll know how my system is going to take this first dose and that will be the indication of how I do.
But enough talk of all that! I have coffee going and trying to figure how what to have for breakfast. I'm catching up on blog reading. I'm up pretty easy and have almost an hour before I have to start getting ready to leave.
And Sweetie! Well, she is still in bed!
I can see out the window it is very foggy out this morning. And although it is going to be HOT today I am cool this morning and even cut the air condition way down.
That's about it for me today. Lots of people having to face Monday morning after a nice long July 4th holiday. Hope your Monday morning goes well and the rest of the day too!
