To all cancer survivors: I have been able to occasionally check the board and appreciate all of the support for my first round of HDIL2. If you are curious about details, just read Fox's play by play, it is all true. (thanks Fox, hope all is well as can be expected in round 2). All I can add is a quote from JG, "what a long, strange trip its been". I gained 40#'s of water weight and stayed in 12 days to get back to 5% of base weight in order to get discharged. Drugs (lasix) for weight shedding never set well with me and I am just able to hold down food after 13 days. I am feeling much better today but exhausted. I have rough scetches for RCC Art that I saw during treatment and look forward to creating it at my sister in laws studio and sharing asap
MDA Houston is remarkable and it has been a life changing experince. I have allways enjoyed diversity in humans but the MDA experience has put that belief over the top. Regardless of race, creed, color, sexual prefference, etc., the caregivers at MDA just keep coming at you with love, compassion and ownership in keeping you alive. I am eternally greatful.
I have a hard time with computers so I will not be posting much heading towards my 2nd 28 day cycle on August 19th but will do so periodically. I am looking like a 2 in 2 off guy with 7 doses. I am praying for all the other cancer survivors, caregivers, and loved ones out there and am going to sign out with this:
Go LIVE, LEARN, LAUGH and LOVE, that is where I will be :)
