I am glad to hear that everything went so smoothly. I so much hope that the good news continues for you and Lauren. May those tumors receive the most powerful zapping imaginable!

That is great to hear that all went well for Lauren and that everything went so much better than the last time. Have a safe trip home and hoping that these tumours took a serious zapping!!

Pam, So happy to hear everything went well for Lauren! You guys really do have a great upbeat team there! As I speak I am visualizing Lauren’s tumors shrinking and shrinking. Hugs. NancyMay 17, 2012 at 2:40 am #60839kris00jParticipant
I also posted on FB how happy I am to hear all this. I am so glad Lauren’s procedure went so well. Here’s to some “zapping”!!
I’m doing okay. I have a CT scan next week. Just waiting till then to find out what’s next on the agenda. Dizziness, etc. is better so I went for a brief ride on the “new to me” scooter Sunday. Hope to get out tomorrow too.

I have already posted on Facebook throughout the day to let people know how Lauren’s procedure went. The whole day went awesome. I am wondering if the nurses got talked to or what. Remember our last ordeal with the mapping. They were all so nice today, practically bending over backwards to please us. They wanted to give Lauren Zofran in her IV for nausea and we told them she had taken that when she first started chemo and it gave her really bad headaches. We told them that she gets Aloxi in her IV now before chemo and it works great. Her poor nurse went on a wild goose chase through the whole hospital looking for this stuff. They only use it in the infusion area where they give chemo, which is where she found some. It is really expensive. Like $1200 for a vial. Yikes. I thought that was so great that they got Lauren what she wanted. I also spoke with her nurse about the exposure last time and she handled that too. They made sure Lauren was covered the whole time and only exposed the area used for doing the embolization. I cannot tell you how much more of a positive experience this time was. Her Radiology Oncologist came out to the waiting room after the procedure and told us everything went super. The Interventional Radiologist kept Lauren laughing in the OR. She was great. Dr. Sonnenday popped in to see her also and even came to see us in the waiting room. I cannot say enough good things about this man. What busy surgeon just stops by to say hi and let us know what he plans on doing. Lauren’s does. He is a special man. I told him it means a lot to all of us for him to take the time and post on here. We are so lucky to have him taking care of Lauren. Lauren is doing ok tonight. She is really tired and the puncture sight is sore. We will be heading home tomorrow and hopefully those tumors are getting a good zap. Thanks for all your prayers. They really helped us today.
Love, -PamMay 15, 2012 at 6:28 pm #60837
Loads of positive thoughts for Lauren coming from over here! I hope that it all goes well and everything is crossed here.

Kris, just a shout out to you…how are you doing?May 15, 2012 at 2:30 pm #60835kris00jParticipant
I’ve been praying for Lauren’s first treatment to go great for over a week now! And I ain’t stopping till I hear how great it went. Finger, toes, and eyes crossed, too.
Lots of love going out to you,
KrisMay 15, 2012 at 2:16 pm #60834

Some phrases and words to perhaps bring into your conversations this weekend with your fellow New Yorker’s……
Would sooo love to see their reactions to some of these. Especially if you all go out for a meal and it’s not nice, and you describe the food as minging, or mingin as we would say here!!!
GavinMay 11, 2012 at 8:43 pm #60831RandiParticipant
Awan Gavin! I figured it was some type of cheering I will work that into my conversation this weekend and give you a footnote!!
(ok, I definitely looked up Dundonian on the web!)
