Another Day In Paradise…

(Hopefully)

Since Thursday last, I’ve been living on oral medication, in the hope that it will keep my blood count at a correct level. lest I return to the hospital.

Today, I go to the oncologist/hematologist, to hear about his analyses of my bone marrow, blood and numerous blood tests.  His analyses will determine what variety and schedule for chemotherapy I should be receiving.

And, of course when this will begin, and when I shall receive my ‘port’.  (for the uninatiated, a port is a large IV, installed mid-chest, to accept said medication.  They cannot use an arm, as those blood vessels are too weak to handle the poisons they are to give me.)

WHOOPEE

Better than dying of lymphoma, I suppose.

I will keep you advised, as I can.

Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. – Guffaw

  1. Gee, sounds like fun and games. NOT. Sorry, brother; may the prognosis be much better than expected, and may the treatment be short.

  2. I had to have a PIC line after the shoulder surgery, because I had to get daily (!) antibiotic infusions. It was a pain. Good luck.
