A VERY scary chemo day tomorrow ~

Tomorrow Duncan is due for his first dose of Doxorubicin (Adriamycin) ~ the drug that can cause sudden heart failure and arrest. Needless to say ~ I'm terrified!! We already know he has one floppy valve... so he is even MORE at risk!!
And even more scary to me is that he is scheduled for a total of 3 doses of the Doxo ~ because the chance for heart problems increases with each dosing!! Sometimes, being in the medical field REALLY sucks!
All I can do is hold on to my love for him. And to remember that I rescued him from an uncertain fate... and that if I have given him even half as much joy & pleasure & love as he has given me, I will be happy.
He is my life.

More tomorrow ~
