I survived the first dose of ifosfamide. Actually, it went very smoothly. The chemo started at 11:20PM and I was hyper-vigilant till the bag was 75% empty, then I relaxed and started dozing off. The bag was empty at 12:20PM.
No nausea, no confusion, no blood in my urine... it's all good.
I am tired though. It is really hard to sleep in the hospital. Lou stayed with me all night, which was very reasurring, but he just left a little while ago to go to the hotel and sleep a bit. Before he left, we went to the Starbucks down by the cafeteria. Awesome.
I have already seen Dr R this morning. We talked about how well it is going so far and what the rest of the weekend will be like. It seems likely that I'll be discharged around 9 or 10 PM Monday, and if so we'll crash at the hotel and head home on Tuesday morning.
So far I am fine and looking forward to visitors today. I'm going to text Doane my room number...
