Today is a lazy day. Maggie is awake and accepting phone calls if you’d like to call.
There’s just really not much going on right now. We are on our last day of oral chemo and will “rest” – meaning no chemo at all – for the remaining part of the week.
No chemo again today. After worrying that she’s not getting “the maximum treatment” I had a long chat with Dr. Loukas who explained to me more details about chemo that I will post her later. Long story short, she’s still getting “the maximum treatment.” Continue reading Still No More Chemo
Maggie’s had no issues with nausea today (a record-setting two days in a row!) We are hoping that her new anti-nausea med is really working. She’s currently resting up for her trip to the Woodhouse Day Spa for a facial as a mental prep for her Monday chemo. Lot’s of rest these days.
Today her white blood cel count had substantially improved, equal to a typical healthy person’s immune system. Great news! We still went in to “The Spa” for more hydration but we are hoping that we’ll be able to get chemo Monday. Continue reading Cel Counts are Up
Unfortunately, Maggie won’t be having chemo Saturday. It’s pushed off until Monday due to her severe nausea. Today has been a very rough day. Actually, today has probably been the worst day yet. Continue reading Chemo Postponed Again
PLEASE NOTE: We really appreciate all the kind visits and phone calls but it’s imperative that Maggie be very well rested before her next chemo treatment. So, please, in lieu of visits and phone calls to either me or Maggie please check this web site for updates on her conditions or the latest news. Continue reading Not Given Chemo Today
Maggie is ok. We came up to Waco today for her class picture. It’s the one that’s posted on the wall for everyone to see forever so she really, really wanted to be in it. Continue reading To Waco for the Class Picture
Well, some good news. I just got off the phone w/ the insurance company to ask why on Earth the co-pay for Maggie’s chemo drug Xeloda was nearly $500. They said that it was because we had a $500 annual deductible that needed to be met. Now that we’ve met that deductible the co-pay for the rest of this year will be in the $30 range. That’s a relief!
We were both very happy to get home. The hospital was not the best place for comfort. And it’s nice to have Niko around for loving on. Continue reading Home From The Hospital
Maggie is doing great today. Her color is back in her face. She’s been out of bed 5 times today although it really, really hurts to stand up. Continue reading Recouping From Surgery
