Update 2/6/12

Hello all!

Im just writing in because I havent updated in a while.  Treatments 1-3 have been pretty uneventful (thankfully).  Today is going to be jam packed because we are flying out today and I still havent received my ARA-C into my spinal area yet. So that will happen when the attending docs clinic hours are over which is after 12. Our flight leaves at 7:15pm tonight so everybody here knows we gotta go! My head is getting sore, which is usually a sign of impending hair loss... which I have lost a little bit, but just enough for me to notice. I know thats the least of my worries, but it feels better not looking the part. Since my dose was increased by 30% Im expecting some more fallout, but hopefully Ill only be the one to be noticing. Otherwise, Im watching the sun rise over the George Washington bridge over the Hudson river. Hopefully the docs will round here shortly and I can get unhooked from this stupid IV pole I trip over constantly.

In other news, I just wanted to ask everyone to say a prayer for a fellow cancer warrior Hillary St Pierre.  She is in the final stages of liver failure and has only days left.. just pray for her peaceful passage to our heavenly father. She is a devoted catholic, and she knows where she is going :) Love her heart, she has done so much to lobby for affordable healthcare for cancer patients. If you'd like to read her blog it is  Check her out. She has some great articles.

But for now, Im going to see if I cant pack a few things up without waking up Chad. :)

Missing Hillary so much, she was a friend of mine. She would have appreciated your kind mention of her.

Wishing you the best in your fight.
