When I came home tonight and saw JaNae on the couch looking green with her "chemo look." I decided to post them. I needed to share. The photos are candid. I took them while acting like I was looking something up on my phone. I did ask her if i could post them and she agreed (though a little loopy at the time.) I just hope that as you share our journey with us that you know how thankful we are for all of the love and support. We do see the light at the end of the tunnel.
As I type this, she is here in bed next to me breathing so softly... I can tell by her breathing that she is asleep but it is a light sleep and she is restless. The chemo makes her cold so she is wearing a jacket in bed and has an electric heater pointed at her. In a day or two she'll be having hot flashes and throwing off the covers. It really is a roller coaster ride. I don't know how else to describe it.
|The nurse had just pushed some of the medicine that gives her a bad taste and smell that makes her feel so sick.|
|This is a close up... and yes those are tears. It breaks my heart to see her suffer .|
|This is the miserable chemo face she gets.|
|Once the medication hits, she gets very sleepy and takes a little nap. |
There was a robin that was outside the window that kept hopping down and looking in at us.
PS. Just to update on her health, her white blood cell count was low and her ANC (Absolute Neutrophil Count) was 1.44. Which means she is at increased risk of getting any type if infection so she has to be careful. The doctors will consider giving her a dose of a GSF to increase her blood cell count if it continues to be low.
