Chemo update

Today dad went for another chemo treatment. It's the first time I've gotten to go with him and only because Jean has a cold and didn't want to share it with all the cancer patients at the clinic. It's a long day that starts out at the clinic where they take blood for blood tests. Then you go sit in a waiting room for the Dr to talk to you. After a long time waiting with other patients you get to go sit in a room and wait some more. The only thing the Dr was concerned about was dads hemogloben. It was pretty low but they decided to give dad the chemo anyways and send him for a transfusion tomorrow. Then we went to the cafeteria for lunch. Then it was upstairs to wait for the chemo treatment. Some people have to wait hours while others seem to get called in right away. They usualy leave alot sooner too. Dad and I waited over an hour and then it was his turn. Dad at least gets to lay down in a bed for his treatment. It takes about 2 hours to complete. At least this time they didn't have to poke him again (except for the blood tests) because of the new pick. They should be able to use it tomorrow as well.

Well thats all for now I need a nap. Was up too late last night waiting to see how the Canucks did. They won !!! It's about time because they just lost 5 in a row and from 10th place tp 6th place they are all withing about 4 points. Only 12 games to go !!
