Day 1 of treatment:

Today was a busy day. I had my egg retrieval this morning which went good. We had a great group of people to help us through the process. We truly cannot thank them enough for all of their support. I will be forever grateful to the APRN who helped me through the process. Not only was she supportive for the medical piece, she was supportive mentally. She was there every step of the way, even to hold my hand during retrieval JShe is truly someone I aspire to become like as an APRN. Tomorrow we will find out how many embryos we have. After retrieval I was admitted to the hospital. I had my echo right when I got to the unit. I then had my lumbar puncture and chemo. I also am starting my IV chemo tonight. I am not sure how long I will be in the hospital. Maybe only 4 days, but we will have to see how I am doing. I am going to miss my Subie! I hope I am doing well enough to go home and be in my own surroundings. I am prepared for whatever I need to do. I did not get my nap in today so I am going to call it a night! But I will blog tomorrow to keep everyone posted. I continue to take it one step @ a time. But we are off on the journey as of today! Fasten your seatbelt!

Till next time…KMS
