Chemo Eve: Round 4

Welp it is time for the fun time that comes around every two weeks! CHEMO!!! YEAH!!!!

I especially cannot wait for another round because of fun the past two weeks have been. Lack of appetite, constipation, diarrea, nausea, vomiting. I hope I has figured out a few things so this next round will go much smoother.

Since I started chemo for the third time I have started to realize how many things in my life resemble that of a old person. In this definition an older person is someone at least 70 years old. (sorry if this includes you and you do not define yourself as old.)

First off I take a lot of mid-day naps. about 2 or 3 p.m. I hear Mr. Sandman knocking on my door and since I was taught to not be a rude person I always let him in.

The second thing that resembles a old person is that I have on of these.

Although I throughly enjoy having this. It makes parking on campus and Wal-Mart much more enjoyable.

Third, As you may have read in my last post I drink prune juice to keep my bowels in order.

The last part that resembles a old person is that I live alone. I saw this commercial while watching Price is Right and was almost convinced to buy one.

Thanks again to everyone who reads this blog and for all the well wishes.

I really hope this round of irinotecan is more managable. It's a bugger of a drug.... Amy

The commercials of TPIR are some of the best ever. You probably should have included that in the reasons you feel like an old person.

A few things- #1: I'm so glad you're watching The Price is Right. That should make everything feel just a little better. It also means that the next time we all watch it together we will be so much better at playing it like a game. #2: Marc is right- watching it does make you more like an old person. #3: I love how much it comes out that Marc and I are regular watchers when we simply call it "TPIR." Maybe we're old people too. And #4: I love that that YouTube video says it's a commercial from 1988. Classy.
