Chemo 2, Round 4 complete.

Hey all, I'm late in posting about Rd 4, but it's all done. It went pretty good, once again the one issue I had is the hiccups. I get them pretty bad, keep me up at night if I don't take anything for them. Could be the decadron that I take for the three days following chemo that kicks them in.

I am getting close to my sixth treatment which means a trip to Stanford Medical for a CT scan and a meet with Dr F. I was scheduled to go next week but had to cancel since I am behind on my chemo due to insurance issues.

Anyways, I hope that everyone is doing well and fighting hard. Enjoy the nice weather if you are having it, suppose to be 108 this coming Saturday.....YIKES!

Eli, Thanks for the update. Sorry about the hiccups. That stinks! I hope everything goes well with Dr. F. I'll be watching for updates. Hugs! Ruth
Thank you Ruth. The hiccups are bad, but I just think of it as the chemo punching the cancer in the gut that is why I
Hi Eli! I'm glad round 4 is over and, other than the hiccups, you are doing pretty well. I hope your appetite remains good and that your energy hasn't tanked. I wish you all the best on your upcoming scan and appt. with your doctor. May all the news be good! Love and Hugs-- Martha
108!! Wow...and here I am complaining about 101... Be well Eli and please keep posting! XOXO
Happy birthday Eli!!! I hope this is the best one ever!
Hi Eli, Happy Birthday first of all!! I am reading all of your posts and are so inspired by how positive you are. I just finished round #2 of Cisplatin and 5 FU pump for two days. The three days after I get disconnected are pretty bad. The nausea meds don't work all that well. I have to get through 6 rounds also and I hope I can keep my spirit up through this. I am praying for you Eli XO

Thank you Jane. Please keep your spirits up my friend, you'll do well. Bend but don't break : )
Wow, that is hot! ThinkI would melt into a puddle if I had to live with that much heat on a regular basis. You must be made of tough stuff (or have a great air conditioning system). Thinking of you, and hoping for great results on that scan when it comes. Big hugs~Ann
Feliz día Eli!!!!

The not knowing of what was going to happen next.

Don't sweat the little things, live your life to the fullest.

Treat me as you always have, I'm still me with or without cancer.
