Overall a good day as she did struggle with having to receive another IV. The IV was for dye to be place in her veins for a CAT scan. The doctors needed a full body x-ray to utilize as a resource for a before and after study during her chemo. They will be required to watch with a close eye her right lung as the chemo takes hold of her.
It is interesting to me how well she looks at the present, and with this small window of good health it becomes the opportune time to break her down in order to make her strong again.
On a lighter note, before it all began I sat and stared at the tube of Busulfan before the nurse reentered the room to hit the "go" button. Natalie had dozed off; and because it was still early in the morning, perhaps I was a bit tired because I thought for a moment what the initial conversation might be like between the Busulfan particles and Natalie's marrow? I immediately thought of a movie; I don't recall the title nor the exact verbiage, but I imagined that the Busulfan enters the room and announces to all the cells in the marrow, " Everyone, I have come to chew bubble gum and kick tail......and I'm all out of bubble gum." Alas...I digress.
With the first day come and almost gone, I want to say how thankful we are to all of you. Both Lisy and I would not be able to support our family as well as we are with out your help. How wonderful you are.
