I am so fortunate to have such a great support system during this difficult time. I have a great family and wonderful friends, some of which I have never met in person.
One of my good friends, Coby of CJ Kopec Creations has started a knit along for me. A whole bunch of knitters are all casting on one of my patterns to knit me through these treatments. They are praying, stabbing cancer cells with their needles and sending positive thoughts with every stitch. I feel very loved and cared for.
I had my very first chemo treatment today. I am not going to lie, I was scared! It went well though, so far no nausea or reactions to anything. I did get super sleepy from the Benedryl, but hey, what's wrong with a little nap right? I did start knitting on my Manhattan pattern along with all my friends, but I didn't make much progress yet. It's a start and I'm hoping if I continue to feel well, I will have a nice pair of warm new socks to wear to chemo appts. Today my feet were cold!!!!!! I am using Bearfoot yarn, which is really warm and I love it!
So thanks to all of you that are knitting along! I can feel all the love, support and prayers and they mean so much to me!
I'll try to post a pic in the next few days if I'm up to it. :)
