Bonus Week Away From Xeloda

Normally I would be starting a new cycle of Xeloda but because of the holidays, the clinic pushed some of us back 7 days, so no Xeloda this week. That makes me a happy camper because I have an extra week to recover and get stronger. I notice my coughing is down a bit these last couple of days and my nose isn’t running like a tap anymore either. Everything is settling down nicely.

I’ve been extremely lucky too because D had a really bad cold just before Christmas. You should have seen me ... don’t touch this, don’t touch that and don’t even think about touching my laptop. Wash your hands I’d bark out at him. We have hand sanitizer jugs everywhere. I guess it all worked because D is over his cold and I’m symptom free. I’m oh so glad about that.

When John went for his first check-up with his oncologist, after his stem cell transplant, he told her that his nose would NOT stop running, but he didn't feel like he had a cold or anything. She told him it was because he has no nose hairs! Luckily, all his hair has now grown back (with a VENGEANCE!!) and he need to trim those hairs again!

Glad you're getting a week's respite from the treatment!

I figure that hand sanitizer is a good friend and I use it frequently. Glad you're feeling better!

I'm enjoying an extra week away from Chemo myself.

Too bad we don't get Christmas every month!
