Official Chemo Girl

It’s done. The first chemo treatment yesterday.

And let me tell you, we were such worry warts! The oncologist was really kind, patient and answered all our many questions – again. Then they took her off for the deed. They seemed to be taking a long time and I saw myself rushing into the back rescuing my girl from the poison being injected into her bloodstream, er, okay, the healing elixir coursing through her body dissolving all the naughty cells that are having a non-stop party and now really need to go bye, bye.

So, the extra time they took was to remove her sutures – almost sixty of them. They were not doing CPR on her or any other horrible thing. I took some fresh chicken in a baggie for her but they said she refused to eat it until the whole ordeal was over – poor girlie.

Anyway, she is doing okay today; her tails is wagging, always a good sign with her. We have antibiotics to start in seven days in case her white blood count drops too low and then she is at risk of infection. We also have some anti nausea medication if she gets nauseated. She is off her food tonight so we will see how she is in the morning.

And we will take her in for a recheck of her white blood count in a week.

Also continuing the natural supplements. Interesting research out there regarding Carboplatin (her chemo ‘special’ agent) and Curcumin (one of them that she is getting):

Anti-angiogenic effect of resveratrol or curcumin … [Eur J Pharmacol. 2011] – PubMed result

Enough for now, I’m off to bed – sleep tight 🙂
