I left home at 7:00 this morning to pick up my dad and take him for his first chemo. Both of us were very nervous. After a preliminary visit with the doctor, we went downstairs for his chemo. He is getting two different kinds and lots of anti-nausea meds, but the greatest of all was the ativan (anti-anxiety). He went right to sleep after that started in his veins. I left to get a sandwich and when I got back he was all slumped down in his chair in a little ball asleep. For that, I am immensely grateful. Tomorrow will not be as long a day. I got home at 5:00 tonight...too late to make it to my yoga class, which I desperately needed today.
