In today’s mail I received an authorization from my insurance…for a medication by the name of Palonosetron HCl…had to go look that one up and found out what it is for since I apparently will be given ten of them. Not all at once of course. I hope not anyway!
Aloxi (palonosetron hydrochloride) is an antiemetic and anti-nausea agent used to prevent nausea and vomiting that may be caused by surgery or by medicine to treat cancer (chemotherapy or radiation).
I have more chemotherapy scheduled for the 4th and 5th of next month and I also noted on my schedule a bit stronger dose one after the other, so I guess they are making sure I have this medication. So far I haven’t had but one reaction and the nurse told me it was to the Benadryl given piggy back with my IV of Sterile Saline…before my first chemo treatment!
I am also this next week on one of my visits to have iron given to me via IV. Nurse J was going to do this on Thursday but since one patient was having a reaction to it she said she couldn’t handle two of us, so she would see that I get it this next week.
One of the Dr’s gave me and another person that came into the office today our shots of Leukine. I told him he gives a good shot! Never felt a thing!
Stopped by Big Lots on my way home, haven’t been there in a couple of years and felt like sitting down for a moment on one of their recliner chairs after walking through the store…well! Then I could not get out of it! Lol!! My legs were not strong enough to push the recliner part down and the mgr. of the store had to help me out of my chair! Lol!! I really tweaked my back pushing and pushing with my legs like I did, so took a Tylenol for it a bit later and feel like it never happened…so embarrassing! 🙂 He mentioned this particular brand seems to be difficult for many people and offered to show me another chair….I smiled and said ‘oh no…I am not shopping for furniture today, but thank you’! So that was rather fun! I decided to treat myself to the breakfast I didn’t eat yet so stopped into one of the cities favorite places and enjoyed every bite of it along with a big glass of water with lemon! (That is when I took my Tylenol)
It is in the high 80’s today and I feel like being lazy. I had originally planned to work outside, but changed my mind after the chair thing. Maybe when the sun goes down a bit more I will go out an putter around some but nothing serious on this day. I did purchase two new cute, cute pair of gardening gloves and a very nice and soft knee pad. I have another kind of knee pad but like this new one much better and can’t wait to use it!
How is your Saturday going? Your weather? I hope just fine and the weather nice for you.
We shall chat a bit later, have a wonderful evening!
