Another Wednesday, another treatment

We showed up at 8:30, on time for our appointment, I had taken my pre-meds, and my blood draws were quick.  We met with the PA and were out of his office at about 9:45 but the chemo wasn't administered until about 10:45.  I don't know why it takes so long but it makes me crazy.  The chemo takes 30 minutes.  So we spend a lot of time sittin' and waitin'. 

I requested a prescription for Marinol as there has been a lot of recent press about it being very effective.  So we 'll see how that goes.  I've tried other variations of MJ and really haven't liked any of it.  And then there's the part where it doesn't seem to have any real effect on me.

We picked up my sister and went to lunch at the British Beer Company.  I had half a reuben, and Rick and Mona shared a pizza that looked pretty good.  We'll have to go back when I'm in the mood for pizza. 
That's about all the news until I get the results of the CA27-29 tumor markers.  If you remember, they were 275 at the last check.  With any luck, they will drop another 50%...a girl can dream!  I'll let you know when I hear.


  1. Sounds like it was a good chemo day despite the wait. The rueben sounds good too. lol


  2. I hope the news is just as good this go round. Keep them markers dropping!!

  3. Here's to relief for you with the new med. You keep dreaming girl! You and this chemo have been getting along. All fingers and toes crossed for your good results.

  4. Yes, I'm hoping you will get your makers dropping even lower! Isn't waiting for anything the pits! You just want to get it over with and have some FUN! Pizza, yum! Maybe I'll make a Costco run tomorrow!! :} I like their pizza, for special times! This must be it! What does MJ stand for, Michelle?
    My internet is operating hit and miss again. I already lost the first comment to you. Hope it goes through!
