With all the suport I had today my first day of Chemo was a breeze. Here is my silly version of the day…way better to read than the clinical stuff.
Welcome to ColoRectal Airlines…We are glad you selected our carrier for your flight today. You have boarded the Challenger 300 Rear Jet en route to a cure. This may be your first time in the air. Many of our passengers have been riding the train “in the caboose”…often times we find those taking a second trip need a different mode of travel. For some it’s by air and if it is it’s your lucky day. If this is not your final destination we recommended exiting the airline at this time.
The first segment of our flight today will take approximately three hours. During the flight our superior staff will ensure you are well medicated with FOLFOX 5FU and anti nausea medication incase we encounter turbulence during the flight. Snack and drinks are on us so please enjoy. All drinks are served room temperature so that the cold sensitivity you may encounter while on chemo will not effect you. You may walk about the cabin and visit with other travelers if you choose, write a blog or take a nap. Our goal at CR Air is to give all travelers and enjoyable ride.
Once we land a the gate each passenger will receive a complimentary 1980s style fanny pack. The fashion police may detain you if you do not swap it out with something cuter. So we recommend you stop at Marshall’s on your way home for a little retail therapy. There are many fanny packs to choose from. The spring collection this year is quite something. The fanny pack needs to be large enough to hold your FolFox pump that each passenger must wear when departing. It only needs to be worn for two days post departure and then can be removed. Once removed passengers may run, walk, eat, drink, sleep and blog until their next flight. The flight schedule is every two weeks for approximately six months.
There are many carriers to choose from thank you again for selecting ColoRectal Air.
So just a few notes on my blog today…I officially have caboose cancer in my lungs. Yup it moved from the “track” to the “air”. Anyway it was a great day and my nurse is a runner and has put me on a two week schedule to get me in tip top shape for the Nashville 1/2. Things might get a little rough after that, but I have not intrest in thinking about anything other than conpleting this 13.1 mile miracle. Hugs to all for the rockin’ support. Hugs – Sue
