Maintenance Treatment #1 DONE!


Maintenance Treatment #1 is DONE!  It took a little longer than we thought it would, but it's all good.  It did my heart good to see all the nurses again!  THEY ROCK!  

Sissy was with me today too.  I think I had to pee 6 times so that's a LOT of getting up and down for her to unplug my IV stand...but she just did it without even thinking about it. 

It's a little overwhelming to think that I have to do these treatments for 2 years, every 2 months.  Actually, make that VERY OVERWHELMING.  Ugh.  I had no idea that this was going to happen....I don't remember this being something that my mom did....but if that's what I gotta do, that's what I'll do.  

I was thinking about it last night and remembered something that helped me when I was doing stairs at work.  It was easier to do 15 flights of stairs if I counted DOWN vs. UP.  That way when I was close to reaching the top, I was saying to myself 5 - 4 - 3 - 2 - 1!!!  It motivated me.  ESPECIALLY when I would say ONE!!  So now that I'm doing these maintenance treatments, I think I will just focus on ONE at a time.  Just ONE.  That's it.  I just need to get thru ONE.  And then I'll be ONE closer to the finish line.  Ok.  Cool.  THAT I can wrap my head around!


Thank you, Denise and Devinder and Chris for taking super fantastic care of me today....

 That's a BIG bag of Rituxan!  It took 3 hours to administer.  BUH BYE LYMPHOMA!

 Me explaining my "ONE" concept to Denise....

Always forward, never back,
