Tags:acejordyn, cancer, health, personal
I'm into my third chemo series as of today. FOLFOX/Vectibix at the infusion center this afternoon, with a 44-hour take-home pump loaded with my old friend 5FU. Six three-day sessions biweekly through December, a break for surgery, probably in early January, then six more sessions through April or so.

Off to the hospital after a while. My parents are taking me, and Ace Jordyn is being primary caregiver this weekend.

This is so hard. On me and on everyone around me.

My brother starts his third round on Monday; I'm not sure exactly what the cocktail is. I think of him all the time, and I think of you every time I think of him.

Finished my third round in 2010. It sucked but I did it. You can too.
Be well.

It's a bad place, and alas I"m too far away to do anything other than think good thoughts and hope that it works out in the best wayt that it can.
