Went for my last chemo yesterday. First real bad day I have had so far. Fell asleep in the chair. Could not drive. Had a rough night. All the fluids I am taking in has effected my lungs and breathing. But the people around me has been out of this world. Off still next Tuesday. Chemo Once a week but I am going to have to have a port put in. They had trouble getting the IV in and the one they did only lasted two days. They had to use a bigger needle and that to say the lest HURT.
Stay strong David. You are in our prayers.

Feeling better today. Drove a little. But I have found a new side effect. Ever seen an old person trying to get money out of his billfold with his hands shacking? That was me this morning.

Getting over the first round of chemo. It was rough. I have been able to get out some with the side effects but it makes you feel like you work a 14 hour day. Lungs were filling up from all the fluids they give you. No pain except with they stick those needles. I believe there is a port in my future very soon. Lets see how I do today. Go tomorrow for a treatment. Down to once a week now of a couple of weeks then one week off. Maybe it will not be as bad. But then it is back full force again.

I really had a good day except a little upset stomach this morning. Took Chemo and still feel good. But it will not hit til tomorrow. Between the nurses and I, we decided it was a good thing for a port. Took the three tries before they found a vain to hold up. Soooooo Thursday I am having a short surgery to install a port so they do not have to try to find a vain. Looks like chemo next Tuesday chemo then a week off. But I expect some test that week. Must spread the money around a bit.

Surgery Thursday morning for a port. I believe this will do away with a lot of the pain being stuck three times without finding a vain.

Ouch. The port will make a big difference. Drinking plenty of fluids? Boost and Ensure are good also.

The port will be wonderful. It can also be accessed to draw blood. Any radiation in the future??

Don't know what the hell is going on but I have gotten only five hours per night sleep for the last two nights.
Whatever they are giving me is making me feel like I just had a good shot of speed. Getting ready for that port this morning. Another thing is that there is not enough to eat on the east side for me. I feel like sending my Doctor a bill for my food bill. Other then that, everything is going great. On top of what I am already on, they are only going to give me a shot for this surgery. If it is the same that I had once before, it feels like you have been drinking all night. Again it makes you hyper the rest of the day. Just what I need. My girlfriend said that she is going to lock me in my room afterwards.

David, stay away from that Cherry Street McDonalds, and fried food. For real, stay away from sugar, high fructose corn syrup, and pop. Eat God's food, fresh is preferable. Ask about vitimans. Research online for supplements that help fight the big C. And remember there is one name above cancer, pray with faith. You are not done until the good Lord say's you are. God bless, and keep you.

Yes keep positive, eat healthy, and accept the good vibes from God and our prayers.

Avoid the sugar as much as possible. Eat a lot of foods containing protein. And yes, the steroids have kicked in. Remember fluids too!
