I also got a Zometa I infusion and that was pretty uneventful, thankfully. Last time I got one I felt like I got hit by a train the next day. Zometa is essentially the same thing as Reclast, one of the drugs used to treat osteoporosis. It's just a different dose that is more favorable for treating bone damage from myeloma or bone metastases from other cancers.
I'm also trying to figure out how to arrange to send serum back to Arkansas for the biweekly tests they want done there. They gave me a mail-in lab order form and provided all the materials and instructions for me to ship it back, but the doc here said the lab at the cancer center is not set up to centrifuge the tubes as they requested (which I actually find a little hard to believe). My phone nurse told me to try Labcorp since they have worked with them in the past. I called the local Labcorp and told me they won't centrifuge the serum unless they are going to run the tests and that they don't ever release vials to the patient. So waiting to hear back what to do, but I'm definitely slightly annoying by the whole thing. Very frustrating.
In better news, I had the pleasure of enjoying "Muffins with Mom" to celebrate mother's day at the school yesterday morning. We also got their latest school pictures back yesterday. They turned out pretty well. This is twice they've had them done at this school and both times they have amazingly managed to get 3 or 4 really good pictures of the two of them together...I don't think I have EVER been able to even get 1! They also took pictures of Olivia in a cap an gown for graduation....so so cute! I'll post some once I get the cd back with the picture files.
