Chemo update: Session 3 of 6

Post by Matt Quinn » Fri Apr 27, 2018 1:59 am

Halfway done. And feeling fine. Here are three from today.

After the patient in the chair to my left had left, the nurse pulled the curtain back so we would have more light and room. And a view of the dogwood.

Bonnie, our nurse, adjusting the flow. She double-gloves and wear an impermeable paper gown. The stuff is hazardous and toxic. But they drug me good so I don't feel a thing.

Drip chamber in the iv feed for the chemo. I tried to catch a drop as it hit the liquid but my timing was off. I did get a drip after it had dropped or a drop after it had dripped. Whatever. Matt

Sending lots of love and prayers your way, Matt. Keep up the good fight. The end is in sight and that's a good thing. As they say, if you don't have your health, you don't have anything.

I have no idea how I missed this news but I did. At least I know that all anyone can do is hang in there and fight, which you are and with spirit, documenting the journey with pictures and maintaining a sense of humor! :cheers:

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|
