Thursday, 3-14-02. Another day, another chemo… I got the 4th in a series yesterday, the 3rd of March, so this morning I’m doing the “sick to my stomach” routine. Mom had a good idea though yesterday that I’m testing this morning. I took a Torecan as soon as my eyes opened at about 3:40AM, but …

Wednesday morning, 1-9-02. I got my first chemotherapy treatment yesterday, and things seem to be going really well. I suffered no ill side effects, like nausea, during the administering of the drugs or afterwards, even up to now, as I write this, a little over 12 hours later.
