Taxol Treatment # 4

I made it through yet another Taxol treatment. My driver today was Kristin Robinson. I wanted to take a moment to thank her for taking me. I'm sorry about your flat tire. On a bad note you had one but on a brighter note you had someone with you that could change your tire. : )

They cut my steroids by half today so we will see how my body reacts to this. The benadryl still makes me loopy and sleepy but I would not let myself go to sleep today. I'm sure you are wondering why? Well, I'll tell you. The room was packed with Chemo patents today because of Labor Day weekend. A lot of those patients were getting Taxol. One man was lying back in his chair with his mouth wide open and lets just say there was a big noise coming from him mouth. The lady beside us was snoring softly. I was not going to add to the snores today. I took a two hour nap this afternoon. I'm still feeling a bit tired but that is about all.

My son and Daughter-in-law are making us dinner tonight, plus I get to view their vacation pictures from North Carolina. I'd better run for now! If anything changes I'll update this blog soon. If not, I pray you all have a wonderful and safe Labor day weekend.

I do have a praise!

My blood counts were up today.
