Hi everyone,

I started chemo on Monday, They had a hard time getting in the port but once they did everything went well. I have been feeling pretty good up until this morning. Pretty sick to my stomach. Today even my coffee tastes really bad and I do love my coffee. I feel for all of you who have gone through this. The hair lose is something that I'm looking forward to. I always had long hair and I got it cut last week short. Love it I probably will never go back to long. Short hair is so easy to manage. No hair will probably be even easier (LOL) I find it very comforting to read the comments that you all have for anyone with a problem. I try to do the same but am quite new at this, so I don't have alot of experience with all the procedures yet, I'm sure someday I will. Not an accomplishment I ever wanted but someday if I can help someone else, I will be glad I can. Thanks to all of you.
