In Memoriam>Good news [Lonewolf Ed]
Lonewolf Ed 04:51 PM 01-24-2015
I thought I'd start a new thread for updates on my cancer treatments and whatever else is going on, since the bad news thread title is misleading now.

My last treatment went better than the previous two and my chest wound is still closed up, which is a good thing. My arm is getting slightly stronger and I hope to resume lifting dumbbells next week. I need to build up my strength again, because I am going back to Denmark in May and I am extremely pumped about that! I'd like to be able to schlepp my own checked bag and not have someone else lifting it for me.

It's going to be a fabulous trip, 6 weeks and a couple of days for me. My brother is going along as well as my friends Chipp and Rod. Chipp is staying close to 3 weeks and has not gone with me over there since 2006 so he is also very pumped to be going. It will be Rod's first trip and he will be there for 2 weeks. I will get to be a tour guide. Also, I am throwing a party in my favorite pub of all, the wonderful, ever-magnificent Irish House in Aalborg on May 7th. The owner and I are friends and he will give me a little discount. We'll have Irish stew and brews in the cellar and I hope to have around 25 family and friends there. I might bill it as the "Fu** Cancer Party." A few months back, I was not sure I'd ever be able to go over to Denmark again or if I'd even be alive, but the cancer hasn't gotten me yet. I'm doing a number on it, instead.

Some other cool things I plan to do when I am back in my ancestral lands include a wine tasting in a castle, touring another castle and the northernmost manor home in the country, and visiting Skagen, the top of Denmark, where you can stand on a little patch of beach and have one foot in one sea and one in another. They also have a brewpub up there I am wanting to check out. I will start and end my trip in Aalborg and spend 5 weeks in an apartment I rent that is very close to the beach. I can hardly wait for May 4th to roll around!

Mmmm, mmmm! The nurse who just came to check on me while I am getting chemo is hot! She is sandy blonde, very cute face, hourglass figure and she looks great coming and going, and she's fit. If I had Saccopoo's game, I might get me some of that naughty nurse action, too. How does the man do it? Even without his game, if I was 20 years younger and didn't have cancer, I'd have to ask her out for a coffee. I hope she comes back to see how I am doing.

This year is not shaping up well for a good end. I got a test result back and my CEA, the cancer marker in my blood, has shot up from the mid 200s in October to 427. It was nowhere near that high when I was first diagnosed and told I'd die in ten weeks without treatment. I am not sure what the hell is going on with that. They're going to turn me into a pin cushion over the next week, too, and I don't like all the needles that are going to be jabbed at me. Today, I have to go in for a blood draw (30 miles each way just for that...) and a CT scan Friday, but at least it is at the center on 435 and Nall so much closer to home, and then treatment next Monday.

Prayers for you, my Brother. Stay strong

Sorry to hear about your potential setback. Best of luck with the testing this week.

I got a call on the way home from one of my nurses, but it was not one of those "come back right away!" calls. She said my platelets rose from 84 to 137, but they are still low. 150 is the minimum they want to see. They might put me back on the stuff that gave me a horrid rash on my face last year to try to knock that CEA down, but I hope there is another option. The rash on my face did go away but you can still see some discoloration on my abdomen where it popped out there. That was miserable and I don't care to revisit it.

I feel so tired. Nap time. I just got a message from a dear friend. Her husband found out today he has testicular cancer. A needle biopsy awaits. I'd have to be knocked well out before they took a needle to my bollocks. I feel terrible for the guy.
