Round #2 and life is good

Much easier time with Round #2.  The infusion room was less crowded and my port was cooperative.  Nurse was even able to use it for blood draw and I did't need a pump this time.  In and Out in less than 4 hours.

Fingers crossed Side Effects are better this time too.

Fantastic, we always like to hear good news! Neulasta shot tomorrow, or not with this treatment? Does this treatment mess with your taste buds like R-CHOP, or not as much? Hope you have a good day today.
MGBY,
John
My taste is altered so far not as bad as with R-CHOP but days 4-17 nothing really tasted good. Finally this weekend I was almost back to normal. Sweets even came back and those were the last hold outs.

Hair Loss 2.0

I'm totally enjoying hair loss again by trying a new hair color I've always wanted to try.  Red!  Unfortunately I may have waited a little too long and will have to shave almost immediately.

Updated post to show shave went well.

Fantastic color- I love red hair- even if it's not "original equipment". BC ladies, any suggestions how to keep it, even if very short?
I think that color looks great on you! Will a cold cap during future chemo help (not sure how many rounds you are having)? I knew nothing about those when I had chemo--wish I had. Might be worth checking in to.
Nope not worth it in my mind. I barely survived this winter since it honestly just ended in May. I refuse to be cold.

Yes, I agree, we have had the worst weather on the planet this so called Spring in Michigan and Ohio; in 5 weeks the days get shorter already, this 40° rain is getting really old. Sunshine and 70° would be great someday this year! It would lift my spirits. I totally understand why no ice cap. And chemo can't take away the twinkle in your eyes. By the way, you remind me of singer Annie Lennox with the new rocking hair! MGBY, John
