My wifes chemo - DOSE #2

Post by Paxination on 8/27/2013, 9:02 pm

Today she got her second dose of chemo. All was well except about 1.5-2 hours in she had a mild reaction to it. She felt like there was pressure on her chest and had a hard time breathing. They stopped the drips and took her vitals. All looked good, so they decided to give her a bit, and 15 mins later she was all good. And then they restarted.

Her meds was reduced due to her white blood cell count dropping WAY too far from the first dose. So hopefully this week she wont have to be hospitalized again with a flu.

BUT, the really great news. Before all of this, we saw her oncologist. They examined the lump and said it seems to have dramatically shrunk like half its size. They said its a possibility that she might not need surgery at all. But like they said, ITS A POSSIBILITY. NOT DEFINITE AT THIS TIME.

Tomorrow she has another doctors visit with them. This is a quick easy one. She just gets a shot of the Nuelasta that I talked about in the other post. This shot forces her blood marror to produce more white blood cells. So its just, walk in, sign in, get shot and leave. 15-20 mins at most.

I personally clicked on this video as a joke. It's about a villager that is trying to find his wood someone stole it's rather good on Apple's Scoreboard.

I hope she'll be okay, we all want you to be happy Pax, and I think we would hate for anything bad to happen in your life, the server needs you, and you need your wife. Good luck.
