Day 1 of Cycle 1 of CyBorD – exactly 1 month after my official diagnosis.

6:30 AM – Took my cyclophosphamide.

7:35 AM – Took my dexamethasone and acyclovir along with my vitamins at breakfast.

8:25 AM – Arrived at Lynn Infusion Center.

8:40 AM – Blood samples taken by Tonya who seemed to really know her stuff.

9:25 AM – Received bortezomib sub-cu injection from Lyn. She was very kind and supportive.

2:30 PM – Just finished a nice 1-hour nap. Feel much better.

6:00 PM – So far my main side effect appears to be fatigue. I also had some joint pain in my left hip and some warm tingling in my hands and torso that seem to come and go. I also noticed the jitteriness from the dexamethasone that Warren and Lyn warned me about.
