You Know You've Had Too Much Chemo When...

Tuesday I returned back to B1 at the UMCCC for return to roughly 4 cycles of infusions. Oddly enough, I felt like I was returning back home after spending most of the spring and summer in a hospital bed or recovering at mi casa from two bone marrow transplants. This feeling that life is returning to normalcy (if you can call ongoing chemo that) has prompted the Top 5 Reasons of when you know you have had (way) too much chemo:


(5) When you can pronounce all the drugs and their exact dosages and your favorite being senokot and colace
(4) When you are back to the same weight you were in high school and it has nothing to do with running or walking a lot
(3) When they call your name in the cancer center patient waiting room and several people quickly speak up and say "He's right over there"
(2) When your veins are so impossible to find that the nurse tech questions whether they are even there anymore
(1) When your wife tells you to go to chemo infusion by yourself!


My spirits really seam to be on the rise and I can't tell if it's because (a) the cancer is on it's last leg (b) my favorite season (autumn) is almost upon us or (c) the increased hope that my Wolverines may have a winning record for the first time since my cancer diagnosis. It's probably (c), but maybe All of the Above combine with swinging Ruby high up to the sky!

God is so good! You have the best medicine of all right under your own roof, though chemo surely has its role in all of this. I'm still praying for you all, Phil. Go get 'em!

I obviously didn't have enough since point four is completely foreign to me!

You're looking well. (Someone recently told me that when us English use that term we really mean fat - obviously that's no correct in your case.) ;D

In my defense, babies aren't allowed in the infusion center and Ruby won't take a bottle so I can't leave her yet.

But Meghan is also right. =)

Phil please post a direct link to your MM dominate site or add one to the logo. I posted this on the CC but there is not direct link to tell exactly what you are doing, unless I missed it. I found the donation site but people need to see what your foundation is about.
Thanks you look good and have a great week. Cassie you have enough on your plate, don't have to apologize. Take care all.....
