treatment tuesday

Treatment Tuesday is coming at you a day late this week as Treatment Wednesday. I held off the extra day because I knew I was checking back into 5South today (wednesday) and wanted to give everyone as much of the most accurate information possible.

If all goes well this should be my last round of inpatient chemotherapy treatments. This round will last six-weeks and will include a rotation of three drugs. Vincristine, Methotrexate, and an intrathecal similar to Methotrexte.  For those of you who aren't familiar, intrathecal implies an injection into my spine. This is done as a preventative measure to insure cancer cells do not spread to my brain. Though I have virtually no cancers cells left in my body, one in every five-hundred-thousand cells or something, the intrathecal is still done as Dr. Greenwald is very thorough.    

My new room has a decent view of a parking lot, some trees and the ocean in the far distance. It also has a nice patio that apparently stays locked and patients aren't allowed on. I guess people with terminal illnesses are at high risk of suicide, who knew. I brought a few of my own blankets, pillows, and decorations to make it more homey.  I'm up for texting so feel free. Oh and clam linguini sounds good too. :)
