    I've been thinking of him too

    I hope he is doing well and that we hear from him soon. I know the treatment is intense, as I will be going through it in April. Keeping up prayers and postive thougths for him!

    Been awhile

    I haven't heard from him via email in about 2 weeks but I think he posted here since then.  I just sent him an email and hopefully we will hear from him soon.  I think he said he had family coning in.  Sending him positive thoughts and wishes.

    Hi Hiccup!

    Thanks so much for remembering lil 'ol me!!! I am on my fifth day of inpatient chemo right now... for those of you who enjoy details for comparison to their own auto SCTs, past or future, I'll let you know how it's been:

     

    Day 1 - Carmusine -- If I remember correctly, it took about four hours for the giant bottle to finish. I felt pretty dogged afterwards and nauseated. Shortly after, they gave me a little BADCAD pump with Benadryl, Ativan and Dexamethasone that I can push on demand. That thing is a lifesaver!

     

    Days 2-5 - Etoposide (4 hours) and ARA-C (~1 hour). These I am tolerating fairly well... once again, I think due to my little pump friend.

     

    Tomorrow is my last day of chemo (hopefully forever!)-- Melphalan.. and I have no idea what to expect there. I'll keep you posted as I can!

    Reinfusion is set to take place on Tuesday... any well wishes, thoughts, or dance is well appreciated! Love all you guys

    There you are :)

    There you are!  So good to hear from you. Those pumps are cool.  I had one during recovery from surgery for pain.  I used it a lot the first day or two.  Hang in there and plenty of positive thoughts and energy are "dancing" across the Internet to you.

    Kick it's butt!

    Hi Nathan,

    Hooray to your last day of chemo tomorrow, and I will find the energy by Tuesday to do a dance for you!

    I found the RICE tolerable in the hospital, but have been wiped out since I've been home.

    It's good to hear your experiences. Keep us posted as you can.

    Continuing to send good thoughts and healing energy your way.

    Cheers,

    Liana

    Best positive thoughts

    Hi Nathan,

    I just wanted to say that I am thinking of you and sending you positive healing thoughts.

    You have my vote for this being your last chemo ever!

    Tuesday is your day, hopefully not to long and textbook easy. I'll keep you in my thoughts and know that I'm sending the very best wishes and positive thoughts for your recovery and new beginning...

    A quick update... Today is day -1.. my day of rest. Tomorrow is reinfusion day!

     

    Yesterday's Melphalan infusion wasn't bad. Run of the mill, really. However a few hours later I just slept and slept.

     

    The best news yet... since I've been such a good trooper, I get to go home for four hours to visit my lovely kittens! I sure hope every fine person who visits this message board (meaning: YOU) has a great day! I can't tell you how great an honor it has been to walk this path with such great survivors like yourself.

    Hey Nathan!

    Enjoy yourself for the brief getaway!  You sound great and I'm glad.  I just got back from a first visit to the orthopaedic doctor.  I've been having intermittent problems with my right shoulder and some other things.  He told me I should lay of the "flying" Wink. I guess I won't get to France under my own power - LOL.  He thinks it's at least an inflammation and probably at worst, could be a partially torn tendon in the shoulder area. No big deal - just over the counter anti-inflammatory meds for 3-4 weeks and scheduled some physical therapy.  He did agree it could be a side effect from chemo but no way to know for sure.

    You have a great day too!

    Jim

    Doing a dance for you!

    So glad you got to see your kittens yesterday and that the treatment has been so doable for you. Wishing you the best today, the day of reinfusion.

    Thanks for the update and very happy to hear how well your doing!

    Continuing to send good thoughts your way for healing and recovery,

    Flying a side effect of chemo?

    So is this the side effect that they don't tell us about, that we may have the power of flight? I'll take it. Tee hee.

    Hope your shoulder is feeling better soon!

    Flight...

    Hi Liana,

      When I had my first line chemo R-CVP I swear I could fly during the 5 days when I had to take the high dose prednisone...never tried, but there were many nights when I couldn't sleep when I just wanted to jump out the window and take flight! ha! Tongue Out!  The side effects from that nasty drug will never be forgotten! Have a good day sweetie. Love...Sue (FNHL-2-3A-6/10-age62)

    Good news

    It's always good to hear positive news.  Congrats Nathan, it makes our day.

    Hey Jim, we flew to Mexico yesterday and are our arms tired!  Busy today unpacking and getting the condo in shape.  Hope to see some whales, they are in Baja now.  Sorry you won't get to fly to France.  Maybe when you win the lottery you can afford a real plane, ha ha. Bill and Becky
