Day 3 of tretment - Well, what should have been a short rad treatment and followup with rad onc doc turned out to be another marathon day. Because I've been running fevers (chills and sweats) the doctors are monitoring me closely. My BP was very low so I had to have an infusion of liquid today as well as some blood work and testing to be sure there isn't an infection. They think it is a tumor fever as a few other people have come in with mild fevers too. It was also decided to remove my PICC line on Friday at 12:30 when they remove my chemo kangaroo pack I've been carrying around. I'm glad. It's on my right arm and difficult for me to clean or flush with saline every week to keep it from getting infected. If I had the port put in I could have taken care of that easily as my right hand would be available. Next time I get a PICC line in will be when I have my final week of tratment. Hopefully by then Harvey will be toast.
I love all your comments and savor the love,prayers and thoughts you send through this blog. I reread them constantly, when I feel down or when I need to energize my fight. Know how much it is appreciatred and welcomed. I send all of you a huge virtual hug. Real hugs right now would do me in...I cry so easily. Feel like one big wimpy baby at times but I guess that is to be expected. Okay, going to grab Bert the Hippo and get settled in for the night. Tomorrow is Day 4 of treatment...only 30 or so more to go...whoo hoo. Love you all, be well, Marilyne
