A quick update for y’all….Michael is a chemotherapy marathoner.Again, as usual, I am making up my own Lynne Knowlton vocabulary. But seriously. This guy can knock it out of the ballpark. He is now on his second round of chemo. * Each is a week-long, with one day in the hospital for IV chemo. The rest of the week is in a pill form, at home. His first chemo round, he was quite ill and didn’t make it out of the hospital without spending time in Ambulatory care. * This week, he did much better, and just finished his second round . His routine is one week of chemo and two weeks off for the next 6-8 months. * His blood work has improved, and he is slightly less tired. Gotta love that !! This next picture is the story of his life….ok, ok, minus the wine. I threw that in the photo purely for my own kicks.
Now that app is called Cartoonatic. Pay the 99 cents and get the upgrade. Totally worth it. Great features.
Do you suppose that I am the only person who falls in love with apps while observing chemo?! I think this is payback for Michael goofing on his new cell phone while I was in labour with Mackenzie. I think we are officially even now.
This is a similar shot but with the Hipstamatic app :Truth be told, if the roles were reversed and if it were me sitting in the chemo chair, I would be whining for cookies and popsicles and French wine. No worries mates….I am not posting any needle pics, I don’t want to gross you out. Truth serum : This is really what chemotherapy is all about :
I kept expecting a drum roll, or some fireworks to go off. I imagined that it would be a big hoopla, but really, this was a hop skip and jump in the road. It is a long journey, and this was part of the walk.
No drum roll, no craziness, just sitting in a chair and watching the world go by in a quiet silence.
It seems surreal.Adobe Photo Shop Express : Is it all rosy and cheery and perfect ? Noooo way. Actually ~ not even close to it. There are pitfalls, and hard days and illness and medications that would shock the bejesus out of most people. The side effects and medical lists are mind blowingly long. I gave up on reading them. It is like reading a manual….it’s not gonna happen. Manuals and medication lists are punishment. Who does that? Gross.
I just want to keep it colourful and have some kicks along the way.
