I know Keely's on vacation, but that doesn't mean we can't do RTT!!
Is it just me or ...
are most of the people who want to be your friend on BlogCatalog trying to sell you something?
do the people who are dieting and say they are so full they can't eat everything they're supposed to in the course of a day full of shit?
does the mailman take FOREVER to arrive when you know there's a check coming for you?
if you do wait for the mailman to arrive, the check will NOT be there!
does your day off go by much faster than your work day?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~We are in the countdown to college at my house (18 days!) and my daughter doesn't have one blessed thing for her dorm. Her dad said he was wanted to take her shopping and get everything at once. I'm in charge of bras, panties and socks. My kids KNOWS who to go to for the big stuff! She does, however, have her student loans in place.
I have just discovered if I retire at 62, I'll collect a whopping $609 a month in social security but if I work until I'm 70, I can collect a grand total of $1185 a month!! All those years I chose to be a stay-at-home-mom was a good idea at the time, but I'll be paying for it in my "golden years".
I HAVE learned, however, if I don't get married again until after I turn 60, I'll be eligible for my ex's social security. Reason enough to not get married again!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~OK, tomorrow's the big day! Tomorrow we wait for the hospital to call to let us know they have a room ready for John. Last month it took 2 days to get a room. I sure hope that's not going to be the case this time!
John will be getting a really high dose of the R-ICE chemo. I have a feeling this one's going to make him really sick. The other 2 times he had the chemo (in June and again in July) it took 3 days to administer the chemo. I don't know how long this one will take. After that, he'll be getting the stem cell transplant, to rebuild his immune system (which will be pretty much destroyed with this last does of chemo).
Hopefully, when this is done, the cancer will be gone for good, and he can work on getting stronger again. He was told he'd be in the hospital for a month, possibly as long as 6 to 8 weeks. I'm hoping that he's strong enough to get his health back quickly. If the stem cell harvest is any indication, he may very well, get well quickly. They expected the harvest to take 2 to 4 days and he had 4.5X the amount needed on the first day!
I'll know more tomorrow, I'm sure. They are very good about explaining everything in detail to us and don't mince words either.
So that's my update. More tomorrow, but late.
