Hey everyone - this is Sam signing in at what is now 5am! I've been awake since about 2am due to the steroids they give you to help with side-effects. I don't have 2 little ones hanging on me - so a good time to fill you in on yesterday. I had my first round of chemo - which strangely enough was rather relaxing and enjoyable! It is a very cheery environment - and ALL of our doctors and nurses have had great personalites and humor - a huge bonus to us! At first it is what i hate and i guess have to get used to - the dreaded pity look. I was new and young - everyone having their treatment was eying us up - but we got over it with some laughter and a little Ellen on TV. the first one took about 5-6 hours - but again - kinda nice to HAVE to just sit there - i am usually not so good at that! I have so many medications to help with ugly side effects -that i hope that all i will feel in the next days is tired - fingers crossed - but i Will get through whatever. Cooper thinks it is hilarious that i will have "no hair like Daddy" i think he thought i was coming home that way yesterday - you never know with kids - you think things will scare them and they just surprise you! That makes it easier on us though- i worried in the beginning how he would take all of this - but i feel he is as prepared as he could be. i Was sick for months with Max - so he is somewhat used to it - silver lining?
So i don't have the flair with words that Tad does - but a lot of you have been emailing and calling - so i thought this gets to everyone!
thanks for your love and well wishes - it means the world to all of us. Tad and i feel so privileged to have such a wonderful support team around us.
Hopefully the next update will be how fabulously grateful we are that i feel great!!! A girl can dream!
