Chemotherapy: Day One

06/14/13  10:02 AM  Posted by Sharon  Permalink 

Hadley practicing one of his favorite pastimes.

Yesterday was my first chemotherapy treatment. I will admit I was a little anxious. My dear friend Patty went with me to help pass the time. Between the hour long wait and the 3.5 hour long treatment, it was a lot of time to try and keep me still. I am way too active for such a long sit!

At about 6PM I inquired about Happy Hour since I was there for a (chemo) cocktail! The nurses thought it was a wonderful idea for them - not for me. But they did have a well stocked mini-kitchen with snacks, sandwiches, ice cream, pudding and lots of non-alcoholic drinks. Very much appreciated.

I am grateful that all went well. No allergic reactions. In fact then nurses said that I did extremely well. I am practicing my patience as a patient.

Today, I woke early - with a little help from my two cats: Hadley and Rudy. (That's Mr. Hadley in the photo above, doing what he does best!) They decided 4AM was the perfect wake up time. (Of course, they are now both completely conked out on the bed . . . the life of cats.

I am told to expect flu like symptoms within 5 - 14 days. I think I will ignore this information for now. Don't want to spend my time thinking about if I feel good or bad. I feel great today and that is what matters.

As a second time cancer patient, I know to research and seek out people who have walked this path before me. One such friend, Gloriajean gave me a great recommendation which was to visit a dentist whom specializes in chemo patients - amazing experience. Dr. Amy was so informative and sent me home with an entire care box for my mouth. Special rinses, prescription toothpaste, extra, extra soft toothbrushes and lots of good information. What a blessing!

Please feel free to share this blog and also to ask questions along the way. As an author, I have learned to be a good researcher and I am hoping that my journey will be able to help others be educated about prevention and survival.

Many blessings on your head,

Sharon

Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword....wait there's even more Now what if i told you there was a simple Wordpress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That's right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
