Woo Hooo I had my last infussion yesterday. I have the pump untill tomorrow, then no more Chemo for a few months. Yeah! I have a PET for the 20th and results the 23rd. Then I will find out how the chemo has done and be ready for a surgery.
On a side note. My neighbors are 82 and 79. They needed a ride to Phoenix, about 90 miles each way. They watch our dogs when we are gone for the day or weekend, and the dogs are just crazy for my neighbors. I just put a gate in between our yards for easier access for the neighbors. (They have the key to the house, but they do not like coming in when we are in and out all day. We don't care, but they told us they don't want to bother us.) Back to the story, Our beagle just started sniffing and licking our neighbor a lot. He started laughing and said what's up with your dog. I told him don't worry you are getting a fee PET Scan.
When we were in Phoenix, they asked me if I would go in to the Doc's office with them. They said they do not always understand what he is telling them and not sure which questions to ask. The doc wanted to give him a shot of Epo and next week an IV of an Iron solution to help build the red blood cells back up. So, they asked what is the worry of taking Epo. I blurted out, You will have to give up your professional cycling career. The Doc was in tears laughing.
Best Always, mike
