13 days

It is November, 18th 2020. A day which saw the temperature back up in the 60s. And day 5 of chemo.

___________________

Well, yes, I had chemo today. 2 shots in the gut. I don’t even know what this stuff is called, can’t tell if it is doing anything positive for me. But for now, I will do this chemo and be happy I am still alive and able to get chemo. I have 2 days left of this chemo cycle.

Something weird is going on with this chemo. I am getting nauseous almost every evening after the chemo. Thank you Dr.s Alkhateeb and Wehbe for prescribing me both Zofran and Compazine. Between those two meds I don’t suffer nausea very long. But the point that I do feel sick and have for the last 3 nights is significant to someone… Even if its just me.

Mom’s visit was nice. She should have stayed longer. But hey, she had to get back to Colorado before WINTER truly hits. Mom, I love you. You are welcome here any time we can work out a schedule.

There is no Thanksgivingfest this year. We would probably break a # of people in a building in a building without a mask, and definitely not social distancing. So, even if there was a Thanksgivingfest, Teresa wouldn’t let me go. Which is fine, better safe than sorry.

_____________________

Teresa has decided on Sweet and Sour Pork for dinner on Thanksgiving. It’s our traditional Christmas meal. I asked her what we would do for Christmas dinner… She gave me a weird look and said Sweet and Sour Pork. So, I get Sweet and Sour Pork for both big meals. YAY for me.

Can’t wait for December 1st, on the 1st I find out (confirm) if my legs are thrashed enough to get an electric wheelchair. I am hoping that the chair I saw in the NaCara office comes in Red and not just Yellow. But I will be happy with whatever I get 🙂

______________________

Tomorrow I get my walker for inside the house. Yes, I am 50 years old and stuck using a wheelchair and a walker. I feel like such a putz. But hey, I didn’t ask for Cancer, let alone Cancer #3.

______________________

Tomorrow morning I have an appointment with Dr. Wehbe, we have no clue as to why we are seeing the doc, but it’s all good. Just a little confused why we aren’t seeing a nurse. Anyhow, at 9:20am lab work, then we see Doc, then I get my next to last day of chemo.

______________________

Friday is last day of chemo for a month, and I hope things go right and I don’t feel too sick, on Friday, we are supposed to finish Jason’s Eberron campaign. First Dungeons and Dragons that I have played in months. I hope to get back into playing soon, but I haven’t felt good enough to run any games.

OH well, I have babbles on long enough. Ifn I missed anything, heh, sorry.

I am 49 year old guy, who beat blood cancer but is getting his butt kicked by bone marrow cancer. At this point it appears I am dying. Married and in love with the most wonderful woman in the world (27 years). She has stood by me thru a lot of crap and I love her so.
