Tomorrow is my first day of chemo. I admit that I’m nervous, especially regarding some of the side effects.
Since it was approved after so much waiting two appointments have to be moved. Tried calling / emailing and haven’t heard anything. Will try again later tomorrow if I feel up to it during the chemo. 8:45am and then for about roughly 4 hours I’ll be in a reclining chair, having stuff pumped into me that it’s horrible side effects will help save my kidneys... such a strange thought.
The long term effects on my body of the medications that will keep my body from killing itself will already be harsh. That being said, any percentage we can save now is priceless for my overall longevity. Any extra moment here with my boys, each extra day, I’ll take whatever consequences in stride because being here, living, is too important. It’d be nice if a transplant was possible. It’d be absolutely wonderful if my autoimmune system stopped creating legions in my kidneys... It’ll be priceless to see my boys grow up and begin families of their own, to find who they are and experience life. I need to be here, for them. No matter the side effects.
