If anyone out there is more aware of what treatment we are on feel free to chime in...I'm a little confuzzled after all the changes...(o;
Anyway... I think we are on treatment 7. Second treatment without the Oxal, just the 5fu.
Jack is doing good....only complaint is fatigue and his "system just isn't right".
Please forgive me..if it were my colon that was sliced I would be poor me-ing up a storm...thats for sure.
The poor man just wants to have a normal "system". He doesn't want to live in a bathroom, he doesn't want to take a pill to make things do what they are supposed to do. I think that a new normal is a hard thing to adjust to...he'll get there and I'll know he's there when the last thing he says to the Onc is NOT "my system still isn't right".
We met the sweetest man in the waiting room today...drove 25 miles in a blizzard to get his scan results. Said he was 87 and was really excited to hear if he was cancer free... he wasn't going to miss it because of a little snow....now we're talking 7 inches, 30 mph winds and -15 windchill. He didn't elaborate, but when he came back to chemo room he told us he didn't get the results he wanted, but he wasn't going to let a little cancer get him after being here 87 years. (o: gotta love it!
Hugs to you all!
