Topic: Got my first infusion of Avastin today
Hello Dearest Friends,
Yesterday I had a paracentesis yielding 6.9 liters of fluid, and today I received my first infusion of Avastin with nothing else. It took about 90 minutes. So far I am feeling okay. I will keep all you brave warriors posted. I will still be drained once a week and Avastin every other week until oncologist knows if it is working. I am weighing myself everyday, and the past few weeks I have gained 2 or 3 sometimes 5 pounds of fluid a day. My doctors's words, "If this works, it won't cure you, but it could prolong your life and give you a better quality of life." I mostly listen to you guys instead of him.
My niece Stacy and her five year old Olivia are here from Reno until tomorrow, and having them here has done so much for my morale. Hollie from Truckee drives down tomorrow until Sunday. Sarah and baby Anna will come on Tuesday and stay a few days. I love my girls so much.
Faith in Christ, and my prayers for all of you daily.
