I am being infused even as I type this!

Yeah its pretty cool i can bring my laptop and hook up here in this room. Its a regular hospital room, a nice one in the new womens and Childrens hospital that just opened lat year. I meant to bring my camera today and get some pics, but i forgot. I will try my cell phone but they usually turn out crappy. Bear with me i am typing with one hand, the iv is in the back of my left hand and if i move it too much buttons flash and machines beep like there is an incoming missle. they had a hard time starting the iv yesterday, stuck me in 4 different spots, but i expected it, my veins are rollers and they are tough so they tell me. they always have trouble with that. i wore the needle home last night and it was a miracle but the dogs didnt knock it out but it was ok so they just used it again today. they think they can get one more day out of this spot.

I didnt have any side effects to the gamma, so thats good. it made me tired is all. Thank goodness there was no barfing! i hate to barf, I would be terrible bulimic. I dont feel better yet, the doc said I would notice a difference after the 3rd treatment so i am keeping my fingers crossed.

The nurses have been great, really nice ladies. (no men so far) OH...this is interesting..the nurse yesterday said this gammo solution costs as much as a car!!!! and she is scared she is going to drop one. Wow...I hope my insurance pays this!

only 3 more days of this

It's good to see you in high sprits Mel.
I do remember the gamma costing A LOT when my son had his treatment. Our insurance covered most of it though...so worry not, my friend.

Maybe you can try to swipe some to get yourself a new car for your difficulties. There must be a black market for that kind of stuff.
Keep smiling.
