7 days of chemo DONE

I made it thru 7 days of this chemo. My stomach hurts from the shots, but its all good I guess. Didn’t think Dr.’s Wehbe and Alkhateeb would intentionally put me in danger, but now my platelets are getting dangerously low and they have me on chemo than drops platelets. So, next Tuesday I will probably go in for platelets and next Thursday or Friday for blood. Yay, rah.

Welp, I am getting a wheelchair cuz of my walking problems. I was supposed to get a electric wheelchair, but the nurse screwed up and just said wheelchair on the prescription. So, we have some delay but it’ll be fixed sometime soon. And then I will have my very own wheels in the shape of a chair.

Do to the pain, I am not eating much. This has caused me to lose considerable weight.. I lost about 20 pounds in 20 days. I weigh 191.1 lbs now. Before the lockdown and subsequent wife imposed lockdown, I weighed between 200-220 lbs.. So much for the lockdown +15.

Mom arrives Monday evening. Cool beans. I’ve really been missing my mom. I miss my brother too, but especially my mom. I was thinking of going to visit them around Christmas, but now I don’t think that’s gonna happen. It’s just a chemo Christmas. Yup, chemo is scheduled for the week of Christmas, I think. Even if its not, I dont have the energy to fly out there right now.
