Every day with cancer is an adventure.
Found out the latest CT scan showed cancer popping up in various places in his abdomen, neck of his pancreas, chest wall and there were more lung nodules. All these were small. That was the good part of the doctor visit.
Today my husband was supposed to start his Erbitux treatments. Unfortunately he had an anaphylactic reaction to it. He couldn't breathe, his blood pressure dropped to 60/40, he was very weak and he was covered with hives. The doctor said that was the worst reaction to the Erbitux he's every witnessed. They got everything under control at the doctor's office but the doctor said it was a close one. He sent my husband by EMS to the hospital for a few hours for observation. Just brought him home and he went out with his truck for about 45 minutes. I guess he had to digest what happened to him. I didn't want him to go out especially by himself considering what he had just been through but he's not the kind of person who listens to logic or me.
New appointment Wednesday with onc to see how my hubby is doing and to discuss other options.
Thanks for all your support and prayers in past posts. They mean more than you could every know. Today I was reminded of the day my husband was diagnosed and in one instant everything changed. You just never know what's around the bend. Live for today and hope for tomorrow.
