Well this leads into the last four treatments. Monday to Thursday, this coming week ends the treatment plan for now. Then I get to wait for about a month then get some follow up appointments where they find out if we have been successful in getting rid of this shit.
During that month I get to recover slowly from the effects of this process which should leave me weaker lighter and hungrier than I am now. I also get to go through what other cancer patients do. I get t wonder. Did we get it. Did we get it all. Will it come back. I expect you can all figure out what my hopes are for the answers to those questions.
One thing I don’t need to wonder about is my family and friends. My older sister Sheana as she has from first learning about this has been by my side helping in any way she could and took hours and hours out of her own life to drive me back and forth to appointments and then sit by waiting only for me to finish. This chore was also shared out by friends Ross, and Dave who I’ve known for about 40 years now and Deb who helped organize the rides as well as driving but I’ve only known her since grade 7. She of course is much younger than me she was just advanced for her age.
There were of course also lots of well wishers and lots of friends keeping in touch behind the scenes and urging me on to the end of this Many of you who read this blog are included in that thought and I thank you. You have no idea how uplifting it is at times to think that someone else cares about my health too.
There are a lot of things wrong with the healthcare system in Canada and I’m not blind to them but I also have to say that the Juravinski Centre took me through the whole process in what I found to be a remarkable manner. I was well informed as to what to expect and helped with info and medication whenever I needed it.
My radiation doctor Dr Kim, and the chemo doctor Dr Hotte were great with their time and advice and even more important was the trial nurse Sandra Turner who pushed me through some of the weight loss problems and all the other troubles.
With all that said now maybe I can get back to taking some pictures and poking fun at the politicians and buffoons other than myself to amuse and delight myself now.
Canada has jut won the hockey gold but I already have my golden wonder team of this month and don;t really need any other one.
