So Far - So Good! Not Really Bad!
Well, I am officially back on chemo. I took the magic pill last night. I ate dinner about 7:00 p.m. and watch a little television and just sort of waited for my food to settle. I was tired and wanted to go to bed but I was staying up just to let my food to settle in that the instructions were to take it on an empty stomach. The doctor told me to take it at bed time and it was my bed time, so I took it with a compazine, which is an anti-nausea medicine and it sort of knocked me out but it wasn't bad. I woke up a couple of times need to go to the bath room and was groggy but I made to to and from okay. No nausea. I kept waking this morning but I just didn't want to get up. Still groggy. About 10, I got up and ....wow, I didn't feel all that bad other than sort of lethargic which is one of the things all chemo's do. All in all, I was pleased. I had my coffee, walked out in the rain and got the papers, read the news in bed with Mr. Kitty, and just felt like any other morning other than I was a shade groggy. You know, sort of like a drug hangover. Have you ever taken too much pain medicine or sleep medicine and go to bed and wake up sort of dizzy and well, no that you took too much medicine? That's what it felt like. No headache but some aching in the back and neck.

I had breakfast at 1:00 and watch the Razorbacks lose to Tenn.....boo....but felt not to bad. I don't feel like running around right now but all in all, not bad. Now we just have to see how the next pill works. I'm waiting till Monday to take it and kind of go from there. All of it is based on how I can handle it. If I could get to where I could take one of these chemo pills everyday, I would be happy. Don't know if I can get there but that's my goal.

I'll write more later. Okay?

God bless and have fun,

Glad it didn't suck too much!

Jim: Sounds like you may be able to tolerate this chemo pretty well. I hope so. How long will you need to take it? Have you thought about what your brother suggested regarding the body scan? It might be a good idea to at least ask Dr. Ross what he thinks.

I can't believe next week it will be March. Time goes so freekin fast now days. I guess time speeds up as one gets older and we slow down and begin to fall apart. I can't work out in the yard these days without bleeding somewhere. If I bump into something even a little I have a bruise. Too much blood thinner I guess. But, better to have it too thin than clogging up and killing you like my sister.

I am really starting to look forward to June and the sabbatical. We will come see you then. I hope you will be off chemo by then. Is the best way to get there to fly into Tulsa and drive from there? I don't think Ann will fly on a small plane. She doesn't like them. Sorry about the Hogs losing in basketball. I don't really have a basketball team I care about so I root for UCLA because London went there and OU because I'm and Okie. I don't even know how either of them are doing. Last year London met his Uncle Fred in Vegas during the March madness thing. I guess they had a great time and plan to do it again this year. I'm not much of a gambler. I tend to bet on the team I want to lose so if they win I feel good and If they lose I don't feel so bad because my team won. Kind of a win- win situation.

Enough rembeling, I will write again soon. Keep up the good fight.
