Holy Cow! Had my sixteenth infusion yesterday. Awesome, awesome awesome. My oncologist is very sweet and caring. She gives me hugs at each visit. So, I decided that I was not only going to hug her back, I decided to kiss her on the forehead during my thank you. Damn, she beat me to it. After the hug she kissed my cheek. I said DAMN! "You beat me to it!" "Because I was gonna do this!" I landed a big one on her forehead! ....Don't I hear from some who feel their Doctor just isn't invested? Well, not mine.....I told her that last year when I had my poor prognosis, I had my yearly cardiology visit. He didn't have too much to say except that my cancer was more important to worry about than my heart. I think to humor me, he rescheduled my yearly follow up appt for november. Probably never expecting me to make it. Boy, am I gonna blow his mind when I see him in 2 weeks! (or when he sees me).... So to all, KEEP THE FAITH!

I think you should bake a cake and add 16 candles, they'd probably light on their own as soon as you walked into the room. You continue to amaze and inspire, give your doc a hug and a kiss on the lips from me next visit. Rock on!!!

You continue to rock the cancer world and inspire us at the same time. Also, thank your doctor for all of us for her good care of you. Not sure you have to give her a kiss for each one of us but maybe one collective kiss!

Maybe you should drink 16 beers to celebrate, even though the pain would be great, it may be worth it. Congrats to you fox you've set many new standards for us to shoot for!!

If we would all follow you fox we would be more inspired. Good luck in 2 weeks at your cardiologist appointment.

Brave. And modest. And a little cheeky with the medical staff. I love it. That cardiologist visit will be a moment to remember indeed. Keep up the amazing work fox.

What blows me away is that I still think that I'm in better shape than most people I see around....Well, maybe not every month.....but still have a pulse in the 50's! Cardiologist laughed last year when I went to my appt. in my high top "Chucks". Sort of like, "You aren't 20 anymore." He is also easy to talk with.

Hi Fox,
I'm also glad to hear things are going well. I believe all of the care and kindness you offered others during your career is simply coming back to you...in spades!
Take care, David

So glad your visit went well. I don't know if you also had scans taken. Seems like your doc has esp! It really makes a difference when your doctor really cares about you, seems like you found the perfect match! Keep on trucking, or should i say biking? LOL Have a great weekend Fox!
