Popping Cancer Blood Test Results: OW! OW! HEY, OW!
My bloodwork came back nearly fine, except my hemoglobin was down. They gave me a shot of ProCrit, which I think I've seen on the television.
The nurse, as she was sticking the needle into my arm, said "this will burn a little bit." What an appropriate thing to say. At first, I thought she had set me on fire.
If it was torture, I would have told the secret plans or sold out little Timmy or revealed Mr. Wonderful's fatal weakness - whatever they wanted.
Still, it looks like we're set to go for chemo next Tuesday - Thursday, presuming all goes well with the surgery Monday.

By this time next week, you'll be on the hump.. Nah! Not just because it will be Wednesday... Half-way through with chemo treatments round 2...
Would you have preferred the nurse to have said, "Honey? This won't hurt a bit"????????

I think I heard of that drug on TV also. Isn't it the one that says if "something" lasts longer than four hours to consult a physician?
Better check into that. You can't have that sort of thing happening during chemo.

I'm just hoping it wasn't the drug with all those horrific side effects.
