Chemo 4.Infinity

Where did we leave our hero? Day 3, not so bad. Days 4 and 5 miserable. Day 6 -- day 6? I thought chemo only went for 5 days. It does, if the 5FU is hooked up at 7 a.m., instead of 7 p.m. Because of glitches like needing extra fluids, the 5FU will go to mid-morning Sunday. The delayed nausea from the cisplatin will hopefully have played itself out by tomorrow. Fifteen minutes at a time.

Dear Judy,

Thanks for much for keeping us posted. By now the dreaded 5FU should be done, and Jim should be on the road to recovery - with only one more round of chemo to go.

Keep working the plan 15 (or 5) minutes at a time. Kiss Jim and those beautiful children for me.

Love,

Kita

Hi Jimmy & Judy, Well as we get closer to the finish line I think we are all impatient to get this done. We can not wait until the chemo is done and you all have a chance to take a deep breath and enjoy life as it should be. We will continue to count down with you and pray every day. Keep fighting the good fight!

Our hero, indeed.

I dream that in the future, medical advances will eliminate the discomfort associated with the cures and treatments used for cancer (and other maladies). I'm glad we have effective treatments, but I wish they were not so grueling. For me, Jim merits hero status because he walked the path of the treatment, knowing it would be unpleasant.
