Five and Done

It has been duly noted that not being updated is making some of you anxious. If you are ever in need of reassurance or just need to hear my lovely voice, for crying out loud, call me. You are not bothering me. I assure you, if I don’t want to talk I will not answer the phone.

After a lovely weekend with Sara and the Indoe family, I had a nice quiet Monday, with my 4th dose of radiation, and concluded that treatment with the 5th dose today. 

I was doing great until yesterday afternoon when I suddenly felt like I’d gone a few rounds with Muhammed Ali pounding the crap out of my left side.

The radiation, like many cancer treatments, tends to make one worse before it makes you better. And I was feeling much worse for wear when I woke this morning.

I popped an eight-hundred mils of ibuprofen, and a few hours later off I went to my last app’t. While I was there I asked to see the doctor since I was becoming apprehensive about my biopsy scheduled for Wednesday (we have to be in Boston at 6:30am) after being in considerable pain this morning, I feared tomorrow would be unbearable. 

Oxycontin to the rescue. I’m guessing that will be a recurring theme. 

Tomorrow being biopsy day means Paul and I will spend a lovely morning together. We do so enjoy this alone time. At least it is early enough to avoid rush hour traffic. 

Then at long last I have Declan Thursday! I haven’t seen him since the morning he spent with me at the ophthalmologist…geez, was that really only 4 weeks ago?…and I can’t imagine what he is thinking happened to me. 

I am well supplied with a new group of Dinos for the Dino Compound we started out back, and his new crafting medium, pipe cleaners. Which really means him saying “I’m going to make a turtle,” and then handing me everything. 

I’ll update you after my app’t with Dr Juric on Friday.  I should be starting the meds and learn more about the clinical trial, though I don’t think my participation can be determined until the biopsy results are in.
