Round 2 Has Started!

Addie (our friend) got Mom to the Doctors office today at 8:30 for her blood work and the start of her 2nd Round of Chemo. They did the blood work and her blood levels was good to start the Chemo.
They started her with a pill for anti-nausea and then hooked up the bag of fluids. The fluids were to run for almost 3 hours. Once they were done around 12:15 they started the first bag of anti-nausea meds that took 15 - 20 minutes then they started the second bag of anti-nausea meds which also took 15 - 20 minutes. Yes she got 3 different types of anti-nausea meds today plus she got 2 prescriptions
Finally at 1:00 they started her first bag of Chemo. This bag takes 2 hours to run. You will see the bag in the picture it's the one on the right. Once that bag was completed they hooked up the bag on left - another type of Chemo and this bag took 2 hours as well.
So all and All Mom was there from 8:30 until 5:00 today but the 1st day of the 2nd round is in the history books. So far she is feeling good. She has to be back tomorrow at 9:00 to start day 2.
