New Cancer Meds… Visits and Kind Words …

Long week…

k29732696

Bobby started a new chemo medicine along with the two he was getting…

The Doctors hope to get him on the onedrop the other two

if it maintains like the others…

The objective…

to have only a two-hour infusion every two weeks and no pump to take home…

As with any cancer drugs… there are side effects…

k22313737

the other drugs causes neuropathy… numbness in feet and fingers…

hand / fingers very susceptible to cold… No touching anything very cold… and being in cold winter air is bad…

This new one has it’s “pretty” side too…

Breaking out in rash… k19603048

on chest… neck… face…

only thing to try to help this is just washing with antibiotic soaps and shampoos…5d942ba5-8cec-444c-93a8-daf9c2e1b331_1_ef5378837881511b281880fbaa483ed16185_dialsoapacne_moneyback

A few bad days when this started appearing…

but, today…

as always…

my Bobby is adjusting to situation and said, “If this is as bad as it gets… I think I can handle it!”…

What strength he shows me after just a little “break-down”…

Just so disheartening…

but, I tell him, “We are in this together… and we will do the best we can!”…

So as of today… although energy level down

He has put up our last two window blinds for the house…

He always amazes me with the energy he pulls up…

Oldest Granddaughter came by for a visit… like rays of sunshine when she enters the house… with her sweet smile…

and of course “Dexter”    is a joy… her “buddy” as she calls him…

Our weekend has been nice…

with a friend of ours coming by to get Bobby… “a man trip” to Home Depot… eating some pizza too…

then my sweet sister shows up with fish, slaw, fries, hush puppies… 14690921_10154563105652836_8489886634317319224_n

A welcome sight!…

Phone calls every day from my special cousin… another friend calls… and then a neighbor comes over to check on Bobby… bringing the Dial soap… and talks until we are both tired…

These are things that keep people going…

keep people feeling up beat…

keep people believing in their words of encouragement…
