Achievement Unlocked: Chemo Complete!

Today marked my last day of chemo treatment for this shitty ol’ cancer. While I want to celebrate with reckless abandon I’m not over the hump just yet. In 4 weeks I go in for new scans to see if the chemo did its job. If it didn’t there’s surgery in my future. My diagnosis […]

Round 2 begins

Hair loss is in full swing. My head is the worst. It got very patchy and had to be shaved down again. The rest of my body is actually thinning out nicely and not getting patchy. Its kinda weird how that’s going. Today another week of infusions start. I can’t say that I’m looking forward […]

Chemo: day 3

I got me a private room today. It was pretty nice. I was able to nap for about half of the session. And no personnel issues today so everything moved right along. I heard some folks didn’t get to go home ’till about 8pm last night. Yeesh. I’m really starting to feel the nausea now. […]

Chemo: day 2

The IV today fucking hurt. Getting the port sounds good again 😉 But I think I’ll have to average out the suck across 5 days and see what it looks like. It was a long day today. In for about 6.5 hours since there was a back-up in getting the drugs out in a timely […]
