C-day +296 Last Day of Chemo #1

Ok, I know I should have posted more! I will do better.

So today was the last day of SUTENT (Oral Chemo), I now get 7 days with no drugs. I did get really sick 2 weeks ago, but it only lasted for about 3 days. The rest of the time I have been doing pretty good, just really tired. The worst side effect has been a really sore mouth. I also have "splinter Hemorrages" under my fingernails, it does look like a bunch of splinters. The good news is that this is a sign that the SUTENT is working.

We willing be drawing the winning raffle ticket tomorrow, I plan to post the video tomorrow evening. Good Luck to everyone.... And Thank You!

I will do much better with the updates....

Jen and I fly to San Diego next Monday to start round 2.

C-day +281 Not feeling so SASSY!

My first day home started out good, Jen and I took Kya to the park jogged a couple of miles. Then I took the poison. The rest of the day involved me sitting or laying in the same place. So we are going to try a different approach today. I helped get Jen and the Girls off to Church, and had a bowl of oatmeal. I will wait about an hour before taking the drugs. Then the plan is to take Kya and the girls over to the dog park for a nice walk vs running.

C-day +275 First Chemo Drugs...

I met Dr. McClay today, visit went well.

(I will write more about this soon)

I was able to pick up my $8,000 bag of drugs for this month. Had to hurry back to the hotel and lock them in the safe. I started taking the first coarse of Tamoxifen today it is (4- 20mg pills 2 times each day). I felt a little off, but seemed to feel fine around 20:00 (08:00 pm).

I start the IV - Cisplatin tomorrow at 13:00 (01:00 pm). The Cisplatin only takes one hour, but it will be followed with a few hours of fluids.
