I really liked that turnip story. Needed time to let my head rest (it didn't really but it wasn't constant). Back at Sloan this week finally. Got my pill scrip for chemo. We're going for 5FU (lol you know exactly what I was thinking when I heard those letters . . yeah you can say that again!) and low dose radiation every day (except weekends) for 5-1/2 weeks at the Sloan 53rd annex which is 11 blocks from my job. I'll either go before work or at lunch. Does anyone have an opinion on pills vs. port and what time of the day is best for chemo? Pills seem odd, I don't know why and I would imagine that first thing in the morning is not the best idea because you're setting yourself up to be sick the whole day. Unless they offer a 7:00pm appt., I'd have to do my lunch hour which I can make fairly late. I meet with the radiation oncologist to figure this all out on Thursday. I haven't done any research on it yet. I've been tired from trying to make up all the missed work. I'm working 10 hour days plus travel time. Pooped. Pun intentended.
