Medical Update: Today was my 4th treatment (ideally the halfway point for the chemotherapy) and tomorrow I will go in for a CAT scan to see how much I have progressed. I know what I want to hear, but we'll leave that up to God. We had a potentially very discouraging situation on our hands today. When the nurses went to put the IV in, my veins "blew" four times, as they were unable to hold the medicine without leaking it out into my arms. Since the chemo can burn and potentially cause skin grafts, it was no good. So before my next treatment, I am going to need a procedure to install a mediport in my chest that will make this all much easier. But for today, they were able to run a big old PIC line into my upper arm and keep me on my treatment schedule. Unfortunately, today was a rough one as I didn't handle all of that well and had my fair share of vomiting. I'm just trying to be thankful for the good days and asking for grace for the tough ones.
Furm's Take: I few weeks back, Cory Furman and I sat down for a chat. Here's what came out of it... http://www.messiah.edu/athletics/articles/furm/61011-alleyesonhoj.html.
