Saturday nite 10-22-05

Hi All,
Weasle, Laura and I just got back from shopping. For what you ask? The latest in hospital wear. I needed some PJ's and comfortable clothes to stroll around the hospital in. The treatment I will be receiving is called "the Brizel Proticol" It was started by David Brizel at Duke University. I start my radiation treatments on Monday morning 10-24-05 at 9:00 am. Sometime that morning I will be admitted to GBMC for 5 days of 24/7 chemotherapy and twice a day radiation treatments. The Drs don't work on weekends so I won't any treatments on weekends. After this first week as an inpatient, I will return to GBMC as an out patient for 2 1/2 weeks of twice a day 10 to 15 minute radiation treatments. I will then have the next week #4 1/2 off to get some strength back for the next round of treatments. This week # 5 1/2 will start and end with the twice a day radiation treatments. The following week # 6 1/2 , I am admitted into the hospital for 5 days again for my next round of 24/7 chemo and twice a days of radiation. All of the above are subject to change depending on my tumors reactions to everything. The only good thing about the chemotherpy is that I will not lose my hair.. Weasle says I would not look good with a bald head.
