On a positive note, today, Thursday as usual, I had my treatment (8 of 18). Labs were perfect and all went smoothly. No nausea, no vomiting, no neuropathy, no tingling, no numbness, no swelling, no side effects at all. My dear friend Nancy, from college and my Far East Semester abroad, accompanied me today. I look forward to Thursdays. I love Thursdays. As long as things progress smoothly, it's such a pleasure to sit with a dear friend one on one. Such a luxury to have uninterrupted time, relaxed and stuck in a lazy boy for 4 hours. Lunch afterwards at the Birchwood. It's becoming a habit.
