With the exception of a seemingly ever ending drip-I'M FULL and almost certainly glowing. The 5-Fluorouracil (5-FU) is being administered over three 24-hour cycles and why apparently I had to do this inpatient. The other 2 chemos being used are the real nasties and with doses of Docetaxel and Cis-platin completed, thus far, knock on wood-all is good. The nurse tells me I have passed stages in the treatment cycle cleanly where other patients faltered but there are many more hurdles so we're pounding the hydration drip bags and Gatorade and I can only hope to say the same in the morning and we'll just read all about these alleged side effects instead of living them...... but time will tell. Good Night-I think...these places are loud!
