Popping Cancer Update

This, in a nutshell, is where I stand right now.

Today I started the two days of steroids which are traditional in the second week of treatment. I should breathe a little better and feel a little stronger for another day or so thanks to the little pills.

Today I also got the shot that boosts my white blood cell count but also causes horrible joint pain. That pain traditionally starts with creaky joints tomorrow evening and culminates with me in bed whimpering softly to myself all day Sunday.

Still no breath sounds from the good old left lung. I see a pulmonologist on Monday. The funny thing is, I think I've been feeling better overall lately, it's just been hidden by this inability to breathe.

No change either way in tumor size.

Any questions?

Why do birds suddenly appear, every time you are near?

If you could be any kind of tree, what kind of tree would you be and why?

1) Those are vultures.
2) I would be a chemist-tree, and invent better anti-nausea meds.

Those are vultures! HA! I'm sorry. That's funny.

Bill, but is it Hallmark funny?

Uh, Dan I think those vultures got to your head. Bill only has American Greetings' humor, not Hallmark. Don't worry, he'll get over it. If not, screw him!
