Monday I was able to work my entire 24 hour shift at the FD. I did not eat much at work but just enough to keep my strength up. Not much appetite that day. No fever issues that day.
Tuesday, Heidi and I had to travel to Columbus for an appointment after I got off work Tuesday morning. I felt fine on the trip and Heidi helped with driving. I was able to eat half of my lunch at a restaurant which was a huge improvement for me! Heidi and I split a lunch which worked out well for both of us. That evening, Craig Peeps baked us a wonderful Lasangna and brought to the house. I was able to eat almost a normal portion size! I did get a fever of 100.0 this evening and took some Tylnenol prior to going to bed. My energy level was returning to almost normal levels.
Wednesday, today I am visiting Dr. Marquienz (Oncologist) for a "check up" after Chemo round one and also getting lab work completed. He will do a CBC (Complete Blood Count) to make certain not too low for next chemo round. Make sure I don't have any infections (which I don not believe). I am planning to work my regular 24 hour shift at FD tomorrow (Thursday). Then on Friday, I will have surgery to have the Mediport placed in my chest by Dr. Espinal at Akron City. This is an out patient procedure and I hope to be home by 5 pm! (probably enjoying some more of Craig's wonderful Lasangna!)
