It's all about stability right now and this was great news. I was pretty worried before the appointment.,
Overall yesterday's visit to the cancer center was a great big drag! As usual we arrived at 8:30 for labs, then our meeting with Dr. V, and then it was off to treatment. On a normal day we would have been done and on our way by 11:00am. Everything was proceeding as expected until I checked in at the treatment center at just before 10:00am. We waited, and waited and finally were called back at 11:40ish. One thing led to another and it turns out we didn't leave until 1:15pm, nearly five hours later. I'm not sure what the issue was? Too many patients, too few nurses, but it was frustrating! Oh well, I'm just hoping it was an anomaly.
Mary and I were famished at that point so I agree to have lunch with her at the Blue Koi. The history on the Blue Koi is this; it was one of our favorite places to eat until last summer. We would go there for lunch everytime I had treatment or doctor appointments. However, after about my third or fourth chemo treatment, I couldn’t eat it anymore. It tasted horrible. It was a shame that the one thing chemo had to ruin was my ability to eat at one of our favorite places.
So yesterday we returned for the first time since last summer. The result? All is well, it was wonderful, again!
After lunch I returned home and finished some work for a few hours before my next appointment, my massage. Mary had given this to me for my birthday back in January. This was only the second time I had a massage. Te first was over two years ago in Tucson. This time it was quite a bit longer, but I have to tell you, the 90 minutes went by like five! Bottom line, I slept like a baby and am feeling good today!
