My parents are taking me to the Land of Oncology this morning for an 11:00am Pacific Time appointment. I will be meeting Dr. Shaw, the Wizard of "O", for the first time. When Mom made my appointment earlier this week, she told them that we were going there for consultation and to start treatment ASAP, not to decide whether or not we wanted treatment. They have a copy of my records now, and we will bring my x-rays. I get to ride in the car so I don't have to follow the yellow brick road!
We don't really know for sure if I'll get my first chemo treatment today, but we think so and hope so because I think that's why they told my parents not to feed me past midnight. I'm hungry this morning, but Dad took me for a walk and then I played with a tennis ball and did some dancing for my cats!
We're going to be telling the Wizard how I have my family, neighbors, Mom's friends at work, pals at the dog park, and my Dogster and Catster friends who are praying for me. He's going to know that I'm not just Quincy!
Just so you know, I have not been showing any signs of feeling very sick, so I'm going to do my best to be strong enough for this.
Thank you so much for your support and prayers. I will update my diary again as soon as I am able so I can share more details.
Be sure to rest up each day and you'll do fine with your chemotherapy! We hope the Wizard of O works his magic and the medicine sends that chemo flying away!
