The last scan, on the 23rd of September found the Pulmonary Embolism, for which I am massively grateful, for if it had not, I would probably not have survived through the weekend. And so, though a PE is a horrible thing, it was the CT that saved me, and thus, it shouldn't be such a thing of dread. It really is a GOOD thing, and I must remember to be optimistic and BELIEVE that it's going to give us some fantastic results.
Plus, I will finally, I hope, know why the hell my leg is causing me so much pain. And if we know, then we can fix it! So it has been said, so it shall be written. :) I loved "The Ten Commandments."
Can we be done with Winter, now? I'm tired of being cold. Gads, I am SUCH a wimp. :D
Tomorrow for Christmas, we're having a roast of rib eye, which we are going to VERY, VERY carefully cook, since it was freaking expensive. The last thing you want to do with this baby would be to over cook it. Too bad I can't rent Bobby Flay or someone of his ilk.
I got a booklet in the mail from Genentech, who makes the Xeloda. I liked the part that said something to the effect, "You've been on this drug for some time, now." Oh yeah, baby, you can say that again. Genentech sent me a whole bunch of stuff with my initial prescription; a pill dispenser, so you could pop your 4 AM and your 4 PM poison pills in this thing and not forget to take 'em. As if. But I use it. There was also a really good booklet about what to expect from the side effects, and how to deal with them. It really was a good little package of helpful, relevant... stuff. ;)
Anywho, since the scan will be on Tuesday, we are going to move our Camptosar infusions to every other THURSDAY starting next week. I think that will be best in the long run, because then I'll have the weekend to rest up. I managed to get somewhere in the range of 38.2 hours of work in this past week, and that's only because those damned painkillers made me so sick.
Well, to all of you Christians out there, let me wish you a very MERRY CHRISTMAS, and to everyone, Peace, Good-will, and may you get everything you deserve from life.
