Scott & Sunny

Scott & Sunny

Thursday, May 1, 2008

Today’s bloodwork looked fine so Scott started another cycle of bliss and merriment. Anc was 1800, platelets looking good at 270, biliruben high at 2. Had it been 2.1 he would have received only a half dose of the lovely vincristine. All chemo’s were increased today … again … he is now taking more than he has ever had to take, steroids also increased. Part of this is due to weight gain but mostly because his counts are remaining high, and hell no; we can’t have that, got to keep on hammering at his poor body and kill those suckers and everything else in its path!!

We are now home and Scott has dug himself into the floor, made a sort of nest next to his Playstation and ‘itchy and scratchy’ (David’s’ cat who we discovered HAS FLEAS!). He is bleating for Papa John’s pizza (which now makes the rest of us gag), and insists he is going to stay in his hole until the pain goes away … one week from now.

The blog wouldn't let me leave my first attempt here so am having another go!
I said that basically we have to be thankful we live in a time when all these drugs are available to Scott even if it seems strange to be glad all these chemical are being pumped into his body. We have to love them and hate them a the same time.
And, if David's cat has fleas, all of them will have fleas, so it's a time of joy and unsurpassed happiness all round!!!
love to all

I reject your reality and substitute my own -
Springsteen and Jingle do NOT have fleas.
Just Itchy and Scratchy. :)

Baths for everyone!
Nothing more fun than soaking a kitty to skin, except maybe feeding some ducks...

I hope the rebound is an easy one for Scott.

Lots of love to you all

Hang in there Scott. We're sending well wishes your way for a quick recovery from this last dose of meds. You sure are a trooper.

I have some exciting news to share. I am pregnant! The baby is due around November 7th (I'll have a c-section.) Sort of odd planning the baby's Birthday but Joe says it makes things convenient for his work! :) Do you think we're having a boy or a girl? I'll let you know in a few months when we find out. The kids are excited. Just wanted to share our news!

Sending Smiles, Angel Laura
