Today was chemo day. I started out at iHop as usual. Got my favorite waitress there again. She's older and very sweet and attentive. There were some guys there in uniform from the National Guard office down the road. As they left one of them decided to stop off at my table and chat a minute.
Then at the doctor office I saw the nurse practitioner. She was impressed with how improved my hands and feet are. I told her I am using the urea cream she suggested. The rest of the visit was the same old song and dance. I also went into the chemo room and stole a couple of hugs from some nurses.
Avastin infusion at the hospital took it's normal couple of hours and more. I had to lay on the bed, because the chair was in use. The room master had taken the day off, so there was no music. I threatened to start singing, but didn't. The infusion went well. The injections they give me in my port had delayed effect. I didn't start tasting and smelling it until later. Then it lasted for a long time before the taste went away.
I had a short stop on the way home for some pizza and Moosehead when I filled my tank. I'm getting 24 mpg at the moment!
Last Saturday I mowed the entire yard with my self-propelled push mower. It was the first time I have been able to do that in 4 years. I was so happy about it. I love to mow and look forward to doing it all summer. FINALLY. I feel better now than I have since going stage 4. The last 3 years have been so trying and dragging me down.
