A Bit Of A Medi-Lapse

3-28-15 – This past month or so since my last update had a few notable things happen. The first is that my daily chemotherapy drug, Imbruvica, stopped being delivered.  To recall the situation, the drug costs about $11,000.00 per month, which is kind of expensive.  Since I don’t have anywhere near that kind of money, Johnson & …

Rituxi-CHOP 4

Cancer Cartoon by Buck Cash

March 21st, 2004. Sorry for the late update, but I’ve been a bit out of it the last few days from the treatments, I guess. Especially the Prednisone. That stuff is just plain no fun at all for me. It doesn’t let me sleep more than a few hours at a time usually, and it …

Round 3

February 27th, 2004. Well, it’s been almost a month since my last update. Sorry about that, but all’s well here, and I’ll tell you all about it. I went to see the doc on February 11th for a regular checkup between chemo rounds #2 and #3. I got my blood drawn and checked, which looked …

Interesting apparatus, eh?

January 29th, 2004. Here we go with Chemo treatment CHOP #2, so take one of the cushy chairs, sit back and see what happens! I’ve got some pics this time so you can see me getting it, and in particular, so you can see the bright red chemical I described in my earlier update.

January 28th, 2004. Ever since I got CHOP chemo #1 of this series (three weeks ago tomorrow) I’ve been seeing more and more hair in my comb each day. First, there was a burning sensation on my scalp. I figured it was probably my hair follicles going whacko on me, indicating it was about to …

CHOP It Out!

January 8th, 2004. My first CHOP chemo treatment was today and everything went just fine. Right off the bat, I didn’t get lost. Hehehe… I went right to the doctor’s office this time, and got there early. I only had $20 bills on me, and my co-pay is $30, and she didn’t have a way …

Rituxan Shock!

January 7th, 2004. Today I went to get a Rituxan treatment, and what a ride! The first thing that happened was I got lost. Last week, I went to the hospital for my MUGA scan, and I just thought the Rituxan treatment would be in the same place, so I went there. They directed me …

The Party’s Over

December 18th, 2003. Today I went back to the doctor to see what the test results revealed. The short version is, the remission is over, there’s a 4″ mass in my abdomen, and I’ll start Rituxan and chemo soon.

Final Chemo

I woke about 5:45 AM, showered, shaved, got everything ready to go and then played online till mom picked me up for the ride out to Ann …

Cinco de COP

bills for the month

Thursday, 4-4-02, and I had my 5th chemo treatment yesterday. Everything went fine, as always, and this time Casey came with mom and me, as she’s off for Spring Break. She brought the camera and we took some pics to share with you all. It gave her a chance to see what it’s all about. …
