It’s a little different when you hear it….out loud

Stage 4.

Terminal.

I don’t know if I’m processing that or not.

But I shuddered.

Yesterday’s Chemo went fairly smooth as far as how HE felt. The glitches were that they’ve never seen a ‘Smart Port’ before. They’ve always used ‘Power Ports’. Apparently the Smart Port is the latest thing in ports. And yet no one was sure how to use it so they had to go look it up. *facepalms*

But he got all 4 bags of his ‘stuff’ and still felt OK. They had loaded him up with anti nausea medications first.  His appointment was for 8am. He finally got all hooked up at 10:30am. We left the hospital at 2:30pm, went to his work, where once again we discovered he still has insurance even tho he only worked 6 hours in December, a stop for a couple Rx’s, a couple bags of oranges and off home we went. Didn’t get there till after 5pm.

And now we are back to washing anything his ‘bodily fluids’ touch asap in hot soapy water. No more letting the dog do his thing drinking out of the toilet bowl, I am sposed to wear gloves…? (didn’t the first time either) and so many things to remember that they should send home an advocate to help you all day for those 2 days.

Saturday we have to go into Urgent Care to have them remove the pump. And they BETTER not charge us for an urgent care visit.

The next appointment is to be Wednesday, Jan 20th. We get home and notice it’s for Thursday, January 21st. *throws hands in the air*

After 4 treatments, they’ll do a couple scans. If it’s backing the cancer off, then we continue. If it’s not…..then more decisions to be made.

And so it continues….

    Sue, I know chemo can drain a person to the bone, but if it helps just one fraction, I will be so happy for you guys. Keep strong. I’m keeping happy thoughts for you both.

      It’s been a long busy weekend. He’s VERY tired after the Chemo treatment on Thurs. Got his pump off on Saturday before we went to the Grandson’s birthday party. And now he’s whipped.

      I’ve been ‘suzi homemaker’ all weekend. Rearranged furniture, changed sheets, did so many dishes, cooked, cleaned……………….sigh
