Week 2 - Chemotherapy

Thursdays are my treatment days, so I had my chemotherapy yesterday. This time I got Vincristine, which sounds very feminine, so it must be one tough gal!

Dad dropped me off at 7:30am and I was ready to go home at 10:30am. I dragged the nurse all the way to the lobby just to give her some exercise. She said that I must want Dad to think I was tortured by the way I pulled her. Of course I was tortured, being stuck there with them and away from my Dad!

Last week they did a culture on my urine, and Dr. Shaw called earlier this week to tell us it was normal, which was good news. They'll be checking my blood every week just before treatment and yesterday it was good.

I've had very minor side effects like soft poo and the pill for that works very quickly. Other than that, I have a great appetite and urge to pee alot with the prednisone.

My lymph nodes are smaller than before, but not normal in size yet, but we're working on it!

I got a replacement collar in the mail today in bright red. It has my name and home phone number embroidered on it. The cats also got a new bed that hangs on the door knob that doesn't work very well so it was put on the floor and now I have a new toy to drag around!

Thanks for your continued POTPs!

Love,
Quincy

Thank you, Zaidie, Sophie Bean, Riley, and and Rocky and Sarge!

I feel very spiffy in my new red collar. It sure looks alot cleaner than the old one!

So far I seem to be doing good and we all hope it stays that way and that my lymph nodes will return to normal soon.

Thanks for thinking of me and for the POTP!

Love,
Quincy

Calvin got some of that Vincristine gal too! Good luck shrinking those nodes - we're all praying that the evil C leaves for good!
