Day 7

Well, this is the last day of chemo.

And I'm hoping that means the lasy day of chemo for my entire life....

After today, Wednesday is an off-day so I will probably just spend it hitting on the nurses and PA's.

Sorry Meret.

Otherwise, everything is going well. Can't complain....

Day #6

The last day of this 4 day stretch of intense chemo. Tomorrow is just a 30 minute infusion that shouldn't be as bad.

Knock on wood, I have not thrown up once which is a testament to the aggressive anti-nausea medication they have planned for me.

Stem cells will go back in on July 2nd.

A big thanks to all those who have sent emails, called and or stopped by....much appreciated

Day #5

Routine is the same....get woken up at 5, vitals and blood....then chemo starts at 6....

I'm not sure who came up with that system but they need to be shot..

The days are starting to blend together...had to look at the calendar today to make sure it was actually Sunday...

The doctors are about to round....its real fun...I love when people poke and prod me like I'm the Pillsbury Doughboy

day #3

probably the first semi-hard day I've had...pretty tired until the afternoon so I didnt get out of my bed....

Chemo is in the morning and at night for the next 4 days so thats not something Im looking forward to....

As I sit here, my dad has fallen asleep next to me...he's a trooper I tell ya

Day #2

4:45 am

"Good morning Mr. Isaac"....


"We are here to take your vitals and get some blood"

"At 4:45am"

"Yea, we normally come earlier"

Isn't there something inherently wrong with waking up sick people that early in the morning?


Glad I didn't have morning wood

Today is the first day of admission. The goal is to be out around July 15th....approximately 21 days.

The room is spacious although I could use a bigger tv. Feel free to visit anytime. But if you have the swine flu, keep your ass at home.

Ok fine, I'll let you come but you have to bring a pizza....preferably large...and some wings....hot ones

And a cherry coke...I love cherry cokes

Anyways, drop me a line....email, comments, text....whatever

Fortunately, the wi-fi is good and my phone has a good signal.
