33rd Anniversary Chemo!

 
Nothing like celebrating your anniversary while getting your chemo!  I had mentioned on the way to Dana Farber that today was our 33rd anniversary.  Rick had not realized that today was 5/22 so while I was waiting to be connected to the Gemzar, he went out to the local Hallmark store, bought a balloon, card, and truffles.  He's pretty special!
 
We had a little pre-treatment surprise - while my red blood count was OK, my white count was well below the safe range. So we had to discuss whether we'd delay or skip treatment.  Or I could have treatment and come back tomorrow afternoon for a Neulasta shot.  I did choose this last option as I really didn't want to skip a treatment that has been highly successful.  Having the Neulasta shot means I will need to take Claritin for a few days to ward off the bone pain it causes when it stimulates the bone marrow. 
 
Hope everyone enjoys the Memorial Day weekend.

  3. Happy Anniversary!

    1980 was a very good year!

    I hope your treatment continues to go well. I also hope the bone pain is non-existent or minimal.

    Quick thinking on Rick's part. Chocolate covers a multitude of sins. Forgetting an anniversary is a BIG one although given all you two have been through I can understand forgetting something.

    Hope you have a great weekend,
    Kevin

  7. As a sign of gratitude for how my wife was saved from CANCER, i decided to reach out to those still suffering from this.
    My wife suffered cancer in the year 2013 and it was really tough and heartbreaking for me because she was my all and the symptoms were terrible, she always complain of abnormal vaginal bleeding, and she always have pain during sexual intercourse. . we tried various therapies prescribed by our neurologist but none could cure her. I searched for a cure and i saw a testimony by someone who was cured and so many other with similar body problem, and he left the contact of the doctor who had the cure to cancer . I never imagined cancer. has a natural cure not until i contacted him and he assured me my wife will be fine. I got the herbal medication he recommended and my wife used it and in one months time she was fully okay even up till this moment she is so full of life. cancer. has a cure and it is a herbal cure contact the doctor for more info on drwilliams098675@gmail.com on how to get the medication. Thanks for reading my testimony.

  9. I recently have some difficult conversations and I did what a lot of people do when they want to know how to do something. I googled it. I came across Dr Williams herbal medicine on YouTube so many people thanking him about his good work. I also have lungs cancer. I wasn’t running all over God’s creation with every man I could find but here I am. I have felt bad about myself for so many years now because of my cancer status. I obviously still have some self-accepting to do but I want to thank Dr Williams for everything he have done for my family ,after taking Dr Williams medicine i was completely free from lungs cancer within one month of usage, I think what you are doing is so admirable. you have helped me a lot! I want to definitely reach out to you and thank you for your amazing work. You are a good person, and an extremely talented man. You have helped millions with your herbs, and have really inspired me,and i pray you still continue doing the good work.you can also email him on drwilliams098675@gmail.com for help
