The Feast of The Transfiguration took place on August 6, 2015 and that happened to be the first treatment day for Theresa. We went to the UA Cancer Center and she settled in for the treatment and on the road to recovery. There was a bit of uncertainty about the treatment, especially side effects of the drugs.
The filled her up with so many steroids, anti-nausea drugs and other things, it was hard to keep up with everything. Finally, they pushed the AC through the IV line and we were done.
The next day, we learned that AC can be quite nasty to the person receiving it. Theresa was sick to her stomach and didn’t want to eat. Over the course of the next 7 weeks, the AC treatments got progressively worse and Theresa would spend 2-4 days in bed. All the nurses assured us that Taxol would be much better.
