Karen is having her first round of chemo today and I went over my lunch break to spend the time with her.
She is just getting started and is just getting the medications she need prior to the chemo drugs now.
They will be starting the first of the trio of drugs in just a few minutes.
It will be interesting to see how she responds to the therapy.
Based on the nurse it sounds like she will not really feel any side effects until this weekend or so. Then the biggest risk is actually about a week to a week and a half after the treatment as her blood count and immune system will be at its lowest.
