Well Mike did good except for the separated rib which is no ball in the park. This is my status report: Had diarrhea and had to have IV infusion on Wed. All tissue in my mouth is ulcerated including lips which you can actually see, can hardly eat but trying. Diarrhea stopped Thursday, came back Thursday night, woke up and told my husband that my heart just did something funny. We did not think of going to the hospital. Got up Friday morning and started almost passing out when I moved. Called hubby to come get me to an ER. When they plugged in the monitors and EKG, nurse ran out of room shouting for drs to come. Crash cart etc. Ron remained amazingly calm. 193 heart rate, atrial fib. This is ironic, typed cardiac reports 15 yrs but when your heart is going that fast you can't tell what is happening, also does not make you think logically like call 911 or go to the ER. So if your heart does a thumping, maybe get help. So they got it slowed down and after 8 hrs in Er got to go home with the dr suggesting I get a stress test, don't think so, already had it, it is called cancer. They gave me famvir for the ulcers but it also causes diarrhea, in fact all the meds they gave me cause weakness, dizziness and diarrhea? So if you know of any salves etc for the mouth ulcers tell me please. I can get cream of wheat down very diluted, ice cream and some milkshakes but afraid the milk adds to the diarrhea but I am trying. I am on a different chemo protocol then Mike, cisplatin and that good old 5 FU. Will be seeing the chemo dr on Monday and asking a lot of questions. I admire all of you guys so much but have many bad thoughts because this is how I spent my 1st 2 wks do not have radiation side effects yet.
thanks for listening.
