Something I forgot to mention yesterday. I completed my dental work last Thursday, so I now have dental clearance to start receiving the Zometa.
Beginning of dosing cycle 3.
6:25 AM – Took my cyclophosphamide.
7:30 AM – Took my dexamethasone (only 10 mg, yay) and acyclovir along with my vitamins at breakfast.
9:40 AM – Arrived at Lynn Cancer Center.
10:20 AM – Zometa infusion (4mg) started by Joan.
10:35 AM – Velcade injection given sub-cu by Joan.
10:40 AM – Flush of infusion line started (to make sure all the Zometa makes its way into me).
10:50 AM – All done.
11:50 AM – Arrived home with a Starbucks.
I also picked up the results of my blood work taken last Wednesday. My Immunoglobulin G number continues to fall and is now in the normal range. Nothing else remarkable was reported. This is very good news!! Thank you to all of you for your thoughts and prayers.
