Here are a few videos I have been watching lately. Thought you might enjoy them too!
WOOOHOOOO, I’m sitting here with only about 1 more hour left on my 4th, count em, 4th chemo infusion!!! This may not seem like a lot, but hey it means one thing … I’m about half way done with the chemo part of my treatment! So in honor of this great day I have posted… Continue reading Safety Dance
Since I’ve gotten that CT scan appointment for the new year all I can think of is, “What if all this feeling like crap, getting infused all the time, multiple transfusions…what if none of this has done anything?” I know that’s not very positive thinking, which I’m trying to keep up, but seriously. Up until… Continue reading The Coming Scan
I had another doctor appointment today and guess what!!!! My red blood cell count (RBC) is staying high for once and that means no more transfusions for a while he says! So other than that exciting news, nothing else has happened. Just thought I would put a quick note in here about that. ALSO, I… Continue reading Great News!

So today was round 3 … went well per usual. I even got a picture of me being injected with Adriamycin. The wondrous A in my ABVD regimen. It all went well with my first draw starting around 9:00AM and ending around 2:00PM. Was a good day, still quite a bit shaky from my steroids… Continue reading Round 3
Work went well today, hair falling out more and more everyday (in the shower even). Other than that energy level is back up and I’m feeling good. I go in for round 3 on Monday so we will see how that goes. Woo hooo. haha
So after waiting over 24 hours for the local blood bank to match my blood (unsuccessful still). I sit here in my hospital room beginning what is 8 hours of great fun…a biological cross match is what they are calling it. Basically this consists of giving me O negative blood, which is compatible with everyone, and… Continue reading Adventures in Transfusion
