Today I had the sixth of eight Rituximab treatments, in the new cancer clinic facility. I brought a small hanging that I hope will help brighten the treatment room up as, being brand new, it is still a little sterile in terms of atmosphere. I suggested it would look best hung in front of a window and the nurse said she would bring a suction cup 'sky hook' from home to put it up. If I can find a photo I will post, but I will have to dig deep into the bowels of my photo library. Or take a photo of it in situ at a later date.
My veins were not co-operating today and they finally got the iv into a vein right where the wrist bends. Which would have been ok except it won't stop bleeding. Therefore throwing a shuttle or doing much at all with my left hand seems like a bad idea. :(
The good news is that the oncologist said yesterday that they expect me to be around for a good long time to come and urged me to continue to monitor and deal with the hypertension, which is still an issue.
I told him that I expect to be around for a good long time, too. :)
Now if I can figure out the bp stuff and lose some weight I will be a very happy camper!
