Completed a 4th infusion yesterday with the good company of my longtime friends Dave and JC. Dave treated me to a veggie burger at Al’s Burgers on Franklin St. prior, and JC treated me post to a beer after at Top of the Hill. Thanks to these fellas for sitting in and making my day better. Things went smooth for the most part. It was the last time I will have the super toxic Carboplatin drug drip. We’ll taper down to only the Pemetrexed for weeks to come, possibly 52+ or more weeks of them. It’s gonna be a long haul. If the Pem quits working or gets me feeling too sick, we’ll go to the PD1 immunotherapy drug that I spoke of so much weeks back.
A nice fella sat across from us that had a chemo port installed in his chest and he may have sold me on getting one myself. He’s had it 10 months and was very pleased. No painful IV installs, which has been a big problem for me. Quick and easy hook up to the chemo drip machine. The port will be a bit of a display while in the sun with a shirt off, but my white, skinny bird-chest has been that for years anyway, so big deal right?
Another highlight was the debut of some sweet new bobos that Jimmy surprised me with me a few weeks ago. My Warrior Coxswain Tarheel blue kicks were a big hit. Made by a lacrosse company. I’m digging them. I’m sure you are too. Thanks Jimmy!
I’ll have a link up this weekend to buy the MW shirts online, lots of you asking about that. $30 each and that will include shipping. Again, thanks for all your support and encouragement. Have a happy Easter weekend, I’m off to grab my Bro at the airport.
