Friday's chemo day was the latest appointment I've had yet. I was scheduled for and got in at 11:30. It was nice to sleep in a bit. The best part now is they have taken the 6-8hr insertion time down to about 4 hrs. Barely had time for my benadryl nap. Colleen still had time to pick up my usuall chicken roti lunch....yyuummm!!!!  Even with traffic we were back home by 5:30pm. After it all, it was a bit of a slow day. Just chillin'. All is still good and now seems to be a peice of cake. It's beginning to hurt more and more when the do the needles on Wed. and the intravenious on Fri. Not sure if the veins are swiss cheese or what, but man, it hurts. Oh well, here's to only 2 more.

Did the usual pre-check yesterday with the doc. All is good other than my red cells are getting smaller. As I mentioned before, the levels are good but they are getting smaller ever so slowly. This is why I feel so tired all the time. With yesterdays blood check, they have concluded that I am iron deficient. Again, explains the rapid hair loss. They have put me on some pills and once the chemo is done I will see a specialist tosee what is wrong with me now. Everything is still a go for tomorrow's #6 treatment.

Another chemo day has come and gone. All feels really good. The benadryl hit me like a ton of bricks this time. I was out within an hour. Wasn't out for long so I had some good time to hang and chat with Colleen. What a girl...took time out of her busy schedule to come down to chemo and make sure her baby is ok. Gotta love her. Even on her anniversary no less. Hey, at least we got to spend the day together. How many couples can say they spent their anniversary in the chemo ward of PMH....scratch #45 off the bucket list. Hope I'm more awake for the weekend. Ben has a bunch of hockey games and our big Thanksgiving dinner Sunday. Should be fun. All the best to everyone. Blog soon.

Not sure if anyone has noticed, but every week I do my chemo, I wear a different superhero t-shirt. I feel like i'm a cast member of the Big Bang Theory...LOL... It all started on the first day when Colleen bought me a Avengers shirt and I wore it. I didn't get a picture that first day......didn't think of it till I got home. But ever since Colleen always makes it a priority to find a new so I can wear it on my special day. As I said before, gotta love her.

Had the usual pre-chemo check up. All is still a go for tomorrow. I had a nasty cold last week that kicked me around 3 ways til sunday. Thanks god it's gone so I won't have to miss a treatment. My hemoglobin is about the same as 3 weeks ago. Not a bad thing but they are concerned that my blood cells are getting smaller. This could mean an iron deficiency..........ha, I knew it !!!.. hence the hair loss. They're not to worried this time around but will do some different blood work before my next session and see whats up. Bring on #5.

outta nowhere.... Steve Jobs....I thought he was looking better. Sad day.
