You go gettum! Do you realize how strong and proactive you now sound???
As we all know, once the shock wears off a little then you enter the proactive, warrior mode!
You are going to be just fine!
My best to you and Marc! Now go and kick some cancer butt!

Thanks Marion. Luckily we have a direct number to Dr Tham at the VA and will be calling her every week to make sure that everything is in order.March 2, 2010 at 3:29 am #35990marionsModerator
Jeff….Great to hear about the response from M.D. Anderson. Not so great to hear that the nurse was not accurate with her statement re: the chemo treatments. You will want to make sure that everything is handled correctly. Keep your eyes open and don’t be afraid to ask questions.

Jeff, guess what? We have a Hyundai! Now that’s enough similarities.
Before you know it you will say you are Scorpios and Taurus!
I am so glad you heard from MD Anderson.March 2, 2010 at 2:26 am #35987

Glad to hear he started chemo. Waiting is the absolute worst!March 1, 2010 at 9:47 pm #35985susanlMember
Jeff, I can certainly relate to Marc’s wanting to go into work. I go in as often as I can, because it makes life seem a little more normal (and I feel a little less controlled by my condition). Don’t worry; when he’s really tired, he’ll know it. I’m on a three-week cycle of Gem/Cis, and I find the fatigue is worst just after the second treatment and lessens during the third week as my blood counts climb up.March 1, 2010 at 6:39 pm #35984darlaParticipant
Jeff & Marc,
Glad to hear that things are going good so far. Hoping it keeps on this way.
My best to you both.

Glad to hear that Marc has started his chemo and that he is doing well, I hope this continues.

Hi Jeff and glad to hear Marc is doing so well. Really, he is. Yellow stain? I think sometimes when you sweat at night the stain does turn a pale yellow. Not positive though. Funny, does Marc work for a Car Dealership? Teddy sold cars for 37 years but that puts them both in cars and us in travel! Also, I, like you clean when I am tense. Teddy always jokes that I windex the rocks outside.
I take it you have not heard back from MD Anderson. Hang in and cut Marc a little slack, believe me when he gets tired you will know about it. Caretakers are the first to know.March 1, 2010 at 3:07 pm #35981

Unfortuantely the Dr was not in Friday for us to ask wihy the Gemcitabine would be eliminated. We will be calling her first thing Monday morning to ask about it. I was just wondering if anyone else that was getting this particular chemo has experienced that as well.February 27, 2010 at 5:10 am #35978marionsModerator
Jeff…..I would like to echo everone else and am glad to hear that the first chemo treatment was uneventful. Jeff, has any explaination given as to why gemzar will be eliminated from the next course?

Sounds like you and Marc are on the right track at last! I hope your time with your Moms is a fun one!
Here’s to no side effects!
Hugs to you both!
