Journal entry by Alisha Kite

Trying to get back to my story from earlier in the day.
IDARUBICIN, CYTARABINE.
Both of the chemotherapy's i was givin' that night. i was obviously still in shock and scared to death but one of nurses throughout the whole entire process was there for me, loved me, and cared for me like i was her own, Sarah F. She was one of the most loving and caring people I have ever met. She helped me understand what was happening and what she was going to be giving to me, she explained what each would do. First i had gotten the Idarubacin, which was a very bright orange, which made my urine orange also, and scared me to death, next was the Cyterabine, which was a bagged infusion and would take 6 hours to infuse all the way and I would get the next round of the medicine in the morning with my morning nurse, which was Anita, she was so sweet and caring also, to this day we still talk and keep in touch. Anita, begins to explain what shes giving me along with all of my oral medications that I needed to be taking to make sure my body doesn't contract any sickness while being in the hospital. I explained to Anita what was happening with my urine, she said that it was completely normal because chemo leaves through your urine and that's one of the main reasons I had to monitor my input and output, also to make sure I was actually drinking enough fluids and eating enough food. She than began to hook my central line up to the Cyterabine, which again scared me even more because it would be my second round of the Cyterabine, and I would get the second dose of my Idarubican that night. I am still so very thankful for both of these ladies who have been there from the beginning and never left my side. I can never thank SLUH enough and all the wonderful people who put in so much time and effort to help me get better and back on my feet. Until next time.
