A chemo cycle is 28 days. For the first two months of this new regimen, I'll be doing chemo every Friday, on days 1, 8, 15 and 22. Then start again. Tomorrow is day 8 of the cycle, but it'll be my second time getting darzalex. We'll do it in Phan's office which is way better than the hospital. Another reaction is unlikely.
Today is day 7 of the cycle. I'm a bit achy again. Moved around a lot during the night, one room to another trying to find just the right, pain free spot to sleep. Poor Gracie follows me around, waiting for me to get settled. I'm sure she's happy to get a nap in when I leave to work.
Also of note, yesterday was November 2. That makes 5 and 1/2 since original diagnosis. 66 months. Finally my brain is working again after the 27 hour infusion of last weekend.
