It's a BLOG Captain, but not as we know it.

Good News!!!

rib4The day started off rather auspicious; The Beast (as it as been unaffectionately named) refused to start.  Dad and I couldn’t get the it jumped.  He handed me his keys and told me to take Mrs. VS to see the oncologist in his Bravada, he forgot to tell me it needed gas.  As we neared Waterloo I noticed the car was on E, pulled into gas station to fill it up.  It took me five minutes to pump $.09 worth.  The pumps were froze.  If I believed in omens I would’ve felt that we were not going to get good news from the Doc

Got Mrs. VS to the doctor only 20 minutes late.  Doc S. (the oncologist, names have been changed to protect the innocent), saw us immediately.  Last week’s PET and MRI showed no additional cancer in the system.  He misunderstood Mrs. VS’s misgivings about chemo as reluctance to take it.  Rather she is concerned with how it will affect her ability to do her job.

We spent a good hour with Doc S’s nurse.  She explained the side affects, benefits, and answered our questions.  Chemo will start  just as soon as Doc D. (the breast cancer specialist) removes the drains, installs the shunt, and clears Mrs. VS to continue.

Chemo is tentatively slated to begin Feb 6.  Stay tuned for more info.

  2. Just curious: does your wife feel better about the explanation from the nurse re: chemo?

  3. Mrs. VS is still feeling uncertain about the chemo and I can understand that. She is however a little more understanding of what to expect.

    The Oncologist will be working around the professional test so as to make sure her strength is up to the task.
