The two patients seated adjacent to me make my 9-week chemo treatment seem like a joke. The first has 6-weeks on, 2-weeks off, repeated for 6 months. The second person is undergoing chemo indefinitely, as it treats, but will never cure his combination of colon and lung cancer. I think it is important to keep this in perspective, as this will be just a “remember when” story for me after August.

My treatment today included cisplatin, the “P”, and Eposin, the “E” of BEP chemo- neither of which caused any recognizable side effects while at Dana-Farber. There were a bunch of patients who got sick- immediately after eating lunch. I was given a “heavy dose” of Zofran, which may explain why I didn’t feel anything.
Once I got home, I took Bruno for our normal 2-mile walk and started to feel unusually fatigued. I’m not sure if it is because of the drugs or because I woke up at 4 AM. I will go to bed earlier tonight just as a precaution.
