Chemo update

Post by Matt Quinn » Fri Apr 06, 2018 10:10 am

Nine hours in the chair, and bored with reading and listening to my tunes -- what else was I to do?

Second infusion, a stronger dose, went well, so far. Two down, four to go. Who could have guessed that I would turn into a druggie in my dotage.

Powerful and scary. Might be even more so in black and white.

But the real news is you're fighting and holding your own. Keep it up! And keep us in the loop. We care!

Thanks Frank. I got the best; Carole Miller, MD, spent 15 years in cancer research at nearby Johns Hopkins Medical School, and came to St. Agnes Hospital a few years ago to set up their Cancer Institute. As soon as my primary doctor had gotten the prelim results about 6 weeks ago, he called her on her cell and reached her as she was boarding her plane from LA back to MD. When she landed, she took over. Is that service! The best.

Thanks Minnie. I might try one of the new previews or preludes or whatever they are called in the Lightroom update. Matt

Minnie, What do you think of this? I used SEP Noire; nothing dramatic enough in the new Profiles in Lightroom. Thoughts?Matt

That looks suitably scary.

Did you ever load up Lightroom CC on your ipad? Playing with photos would give you something to do to while away that long nightmare of a day.

Minnie, Yesterday's session was longer because they had to do new stuff; the next ones should take shorter. And I don't want to drag the stuff to the center. Can contaminate only so much. When we come home, we have to strip and launder everything to insure there is no residue chemicals hanging around. Couldn't do that with the ipad. And I need to take a break from the photos, I think. But thanks,

Love the back and forth on the lily. Let's keep it going .Matt
