Drugged Up

It’s Sunday night and Scott is loaded up to the hilt with steroids, chemo and antibiotics and is feeling dreadful. He’s laying in our bed under a mountain of covers with a woollie hat on his head, cold and depressed but gaining some enjoyment from watching some badass getting tazered on ‘Cops’.

The vincristine has taken affect and his jaw is giving him pain, tomorrow his legs will likely start to hurt and by Tuesday he will be limping. The steroids have given him a lovely nuclear ‘glow’ and his face is puffing up nicely.

I hate all these drugs but at the same time I am obviously so grateful for them. David and I are all to aware that it is only in the last generation that our children have had a real good chance at fighting this disease, had it been one of us (or one of you!) then we probably wouldn’t have made it. Someone told me the other day that we are on the verge of being able to stop cancer in its tracks, to turn it around and wave the bitch goodbye. Lets hope so eh?

One last thing …

You know what it’s like when you get a birthday card and you open it up and there’s money in it? Its great isn’t it? Well that happened to us the other day and it wasn’t even any of our birthdays!!!!

Thank you Grand momma and Papa, thank you very much.

You guys rock!
Oh and another last thing, here is a photo of Scotty, I took it whilst we were waiting for the radiation doctor who was running late as the "machine broke down". He was sitting there in the waiting room with his hat perched on top of his head with a perfectly straight face just delighted to be entertaining the other cancer patients who couldnt help but give him a funny look and a giggle.
