Good afternoon ..........
I missed this morning because of an early doctor appointment, blood draw and chemo treatment. The four hours went by fast today. I had a ton of questions for the Nurse Practitioner - and we got thru nearly all of them.
It looks like there may be some kind of a change in my treatment, but first, I'm scheduled for another catscan in two weeks. It's to see if the cancer that had spread a couple of years ago - has regressed any more since the last catscan. The cancer did regress somewhat away from my adrenalin gland last time .... and I'm hoping that this time, it will show some regression away from my kidneys especially.
With a some major luck, I may actually be able to have my left kidney stent removed - and my right kidney nefrostomy tube removed - then be able to cancel the Saturday weekly apointments for a dressing change on my back where the internal tube comes out thru my back. I've been going to the Ambulatory section of a local hospital for the dressing changes every stinkin Saturday for over 18-months .... gettin kind of sick of over 70-hospital ambulatory visits since June of 2012.
Also hoping that the cancer that had invaded part of my rib cage, liver, lymph node and abdomen will show some regression with the next catscan.
Well - enough medical bad or mediocre news for now.
Michele ....... keep strong. Time will heal most of the negatives that are getting to you now.
AV ......... good luck with a quick and painless resolution with your tooth or two teeth.
Karen ........ keep getting better - and hope the next cold front is not like the last one.
Myself ......... still hoping you can get either some additional sub teaching or a little extra tutoring.
It's 44 degrees out here at 3pm .... cool!!!!!
Hope you have a good day all.
