Thursday 29 April 2010 Cycle Thirteen, Day One, Treatment One.

I met with my DR today and we have started round Thirteen of Chemo with this particular drug. Yiippee Skippee
took one nurse one try to get the IV started.

We are currently down in Roseburg OR, for my daughter's Father-in-law Del McKay's memorial service. He was a great guy.

Thursday 22 April 2010 Cycle Twelve, Day Twenty-two, Treatment NONE
This is my week OFF from treatment. YEAH!!!! All I want to do is sleep!

This past week or so has been sad one for a couple of my friends and family, as they have lost a Loved one. My neighbour who has been in a care center for almost two years now and I've been caring for his house and yard to keep the appearance up that some one was there---Died last Saturday 17 April 2010. Then on Sunday 18 April 2010 my daughter's father-in-law Del McKay passed away.

Thursday 15April 2010 Cycle Twelve, Day Fifteen, Treatment Three

Today was a much better day in the parking lot...... no near misses. took the nurse two (2) tries to get the IV started today. the Chemo drug only stung a little today not as bad as it has in the past. All in all it was a good day. Since we've up the dosage on the anti nausea medications I'm currently not vomiting every morning but I'm still a little queasy. Keep-Her and I are walking daily again, outdoors when the weather is dry----yeah I'm a fair weather walker---otherwise we walk on the treadmill for an hour every morning.

Thursday 08April 2010 Cycle Twelve, Day Eight, Treatment Two

My appointment was for 11:00 AM today. As we pulled into the parking lot and about to pull into a parking spot a large 4x 4 extend cab pick up came barreling up and almost hit us, on the passenger side front door. Barely missed us if my driver had not been fast on the break. Guess what that did to my blood pressure today-----oh yeah thru the roof.

took first nurse only one try to get in today. YEAH!!! the Chemo drug stung going in, but thank goodness for hot packs. otherwise it was an uneventful trip to chemo today.

NEVER EVER go to the DR on April Fools day!!!!!

It can never be a good thing. It was two years ago on April fools when I had my mammogram that started off this whole mess.

I had another CT Scan done on Friday 26 March 2010 and the report came back same ole thing. the primary tumor has neither grown nor shrunk any more. It seems to be holding it's own and is status quo.

So on we go with more of the same.
