Treatment---- one down

First treatment went well, it took about 2 1/2 hours but being the first time a lot of that was explaining everything as they went along.  Future treatments will probably be done in under 2 hours.  The first few drips are anti-nausea meds the actual chemo gets pushed in then another 30 min drip of steroids to help with the nausea also.  DOXOrubicin hydrochloride is the actual chemo drug name for those interested, it has been around a long time.  They have recliner chairs lining the room with floor to ceiling windows,  today looking out at a beautiful fall day with 80 degree temps.  This picture was taken in the waiting room before she went back her co workers put together a giant LLBean tote filled with all sorts of goodies and Shelly  had brought it down to her before her treatment started.  She is overwhelmed with all the support, emails, notes, attention....Thank you all.
