Thank you everyone for the kind words, prayers and encouragement. First treatment went well. No nausea or feeling sick. Didn’t get overly tired. Did what I wanted to do till I got tired and then took a nap. I can only hope that the next treatments goes just as well.

Update!
I had a ct scan the other 2 weeks ago. Just had and appointment on Wednesday for chemo and had my results read. The treatment I am on is working! Everything on my lungs is under a cm and they can count the number of nodules now. My liver has cleaned up pretty good as well. One tumor has shrank in half. Dr is talking about possibly switching over more of a maintenance dose of chemo to keep things under control. They have seen better results this way compared to stopping and restarting when things start growing again.
