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.
