Couple of Quick Updates

In brief:

Had treatment #2 on this new drug yesterday.  Infusion went smoothly.

I'm still in love with my Purple Power Port. (ENGAGE!)

We forgot to get pics this time.  Later on, Keith asked if I thought that meant we were getting to used to this whole deal.

Docs think everything is going fine.  They disagree with my PCP about my thyroid levels.  Blood sugar is slowly coming under control.

After two more treatments, I'll be scanned again.

Nurse who drew blood from the port for labs dripped saline all over my arm and didn't even notice.

Center was backed up yesterday---bad.  Waited over two hours to get seen by docs before treatment. 

Worst part of wait was listening to folks gripe.  Wanted to lean to woman next to me and say "Patient waiting is best done quietly."  This is what books and puzzle magazines are for.

Glad Keith was with me.

Talked to a young dude (20's) and his mom.  He started treatment with the chemo I did way back when.  Kind of gave him heads up on stuff.

Feel okay--just a little tired.

Weekend yard sales look good for Derby day.  Several cancelled sales from last week rescheduled.  Bring it!

Free Comic Book Day will only be two days at favorite shop instead of a week as in past.  Bummer.  Sale they are running those two days kind of makes up for it.  Kinda.

That's it for now.  See ya!

Another on done. The waiting is tough. Listening to others is tough too. So glad Keith was there. Hugs, Hugs for Keith too. Think COMICS.

glad your infusion went smoothly and your feeling okay. Whiny people make waiting worse. What is it accomplishing besides pissing me off :)
Hope you find some great sales!

I was thinking of you yesterday, too but didn't really know why? Maybe because I haven't been reading many blogs lately and thought I should get caught up!Glad your treatment wasn't too bad. Hang in there!
