I AM DONE WITH CHEMMOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

8 down, NONE TO GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

:jam:

and it sooooo weird, Adam - truly!!! thanks for all the good vibes, probably won't make it on saturday Sarah but i still have my lawn ticket.

my numbers were just okay today, good enough for a treatment but by the narrowest margin i've had. the PA put me back on the $%^&*$#@$%^%#$the antibiotic to try to push the white cell count up without having to resort to another neulasta shot. i was on it for 3 weeks and off of it for less than one week. :tongue: my acupuncturist is on vacation this week so i'm not getting any help with any of the pain or cells this round so i don't want to add the pain of neulasta to the pain of the taxol, which is the worst of the two. it's going to be a really interesting round, no matter what - i wonder if i'll get a lot of baseball bat whacks again....

the swollen feet and ankles are their main concern currently, they indicate a possibility for deep vein thrombosis - bloodclots deep in the big veins of the leg. they can travel to the lungs most commonly, and then it would be an embolism which is what they went looking for last week. the only recommendation is elevation and they gave me some things to watch for at which point i'd have to call in. they are staffed on the weekends and holidays, although my doc isn't the one on call this week/end, he's on his 3rd vacation in the 4 months i've been seeing him.

PA thinks i miiiiiiight keep the fingernails but just barely and only if i don't whack them, especially in any way that causes even a slight lifting. so it's getting a bit tricky to do things at all, even normal things. interesting. the two big toenails are toast, especially the left one, she agrees. the other toenails look okay..... the pinky one is turning color a bit but i think it's too late for it to go very far.

that's about it for today. i'm tired and i'm reclining and resting tonight. thanks to Kerri i have some yummy eggplant parm i'm going to heat up for dinner tonight. :thup: :)

it sure does and i know you know how much my heart is with you every day. :heart:

i see the radiation oncologist tomorrow at 8:30, my dad wants to go with me but he used the word 'curious' so i think learning more about the scientific calculation of it all is the draw for him. we are going out to breakfast first, he's all excited to try this new place that opened in s. glens falls. :)

the PA thought that my first simulation will be friday, yikes, my second one next week, and then we wait the 4 weeks for me and my white cells to recover from the chemo. week of 7/30 i "hope".

yikes!

sounds good to me, elder! :)

just got home from the radiation oncologist, whoooooo, lotta information! i don't see how i possibly could have done that consult during a treatment. dr hellman is my main guy, he seems........... fine. the nurse said something about good thing i had brought someone with me because of all the info i was going to get and then hellman is completely weirded out by my recorder! he asked me to turn it off and when i said it wasn't on yet, he said his schpiel would change and he'd be more detailed if the recorder was on and that i should be aware of that. :huh: so i said okayyyy, and hit the on button. wtf. :dunno: first dr i've come across who cared even in the slightest, about its existence.

so there's a few freaky side effects, but the first 3 weeks or so should be reasonable uneventful. my cat scan and first simulation is tomorrow at 8am, and i'll get my tattoos at that time. i can't believe my first tattoos are going to be radiation markers. :plain:

if they need to do another simulation, they'll have time next week and then my dry run will be the 24th or 25th and and we should start on the 25th or 26th. yikes. i'll have 33 rounds once daily, monday thru friday, so my last round should be september 10th or 11th..... yikes.

my sister will be back to go to my first one with me, i'm glad about that. :thup:

thanks from the bottom of my heart and soul, for all the good wishes. they mean more than i can ever express, truly. :heart:

Congrats on finishing chemo. I'd be worried too if I had the risks you face, but try to keep it on the sunny side especially when you're by yourself. You can vent here anytime.

I know you're not making Phish this weekend, but is there a chance you'll make it over to Wende's for a bit on either Sat or Sun??

If that's not in the cards, let me know if you'd be up for a small contingent of boardies coming to visit you at home.

You have my number. Call/text me and let me know what you're up for and what you can handle.
