More Good News Today!

March 28, 2012

I was told to call the Oncology Center a 9:45 this morning to see where Doc thought I was in being able to start Chemo or not. As I suspected, they put it off till Monday. Kind of a disappointment, but expected.

 

What I didn’t expect was a call back from them about 20 minutes later telling me to come on down as the Doc had rechecked over all the labs, etc and decided we could go ahead and start the Chemo!

Yay Me!!

So that’s what we did. Felt really good to go on offense against this crap. I was afraid that every day of delay was just giving that crap more time to get bigger and stronger till we weren’t gonna be able to treat it right.

So lets hear it for starting Chemo and kicking back on that crap!!

They sent me home with a pump that I will wear till Friday afternoon of the appropriately named 5 FU infusing. No big deal. easy peasy.

 

OK, the weather is absolutely beautiful out so I’m gonna go sit out in my Garage Cave now and enjoy the breeze.

 

Thanks again to Y’all for being here and taking the time to comment.

    Feeling good enough to walk around and hang out in the garage?

    Sounds like CrazyUnk could take a double-dose of chemo and walk it off.

    Glad to hear you’re taking it in stride and I hope those commie cancer cells are dying a painful, violent death!

    • crazyuncle Says:

      Don’t know about a double dose, Dude! But I feel like I have to get moving a bit to try and regain strength lost in this latest setback.
      They have limited my diet quite a bit for now and the Wife is looking to work within those guidelines to find things to build me up. So far so good.
      I do have a bit of Chemo Belly today, but not bad. Tired too so I took a nap & trying to push fluids.

      Wife says you 2 are hatching a plot? Good.
