Nuttin' Honey

Nothing major to report which is wonderful!

I saw the radiation oncologist on Wednesday for the one month check-up after finishing radiation. Doesn't seem possible that it was only a month ago! He said as far as he is concerned, I have a clean bill of health. He did say, tho, that if I had any problems that were related to radiation, that I should call their office, not my internist. Makes sense.

I spoke with the nurse after she did the preliminary blood pressure and weight (lost another 2 pounds, so yeah! Only 35 more to go to reach my first goal) about the port removal. She had worked in infusion oncology before switching to radiation oncology. Nurse Marlene said the exact thing that the oncology nurse said about the port removal. "It's easy. Yes, it's a snip-snip and the port is out." She said it's always easier and faster to take something out than put it in. Hmmmmm. So once I meet with the new oncologist, I will make the appointment for the removal. Oh, but then Vic has surgery. Okay, we'll wait a little longer. :-)

Weather in Seattle is weird this weekend. We had glorious sunshine yesterday and today we have strong winds and snow is coming. Can't wait for it be really spring and have the chance to play in the garden with plants. I even like to weed! Weeding gives me great pleasure in that I can see immediate results . . .the flowerbeds look clean and spiffy.

Vic is calling me for dinner. . .he is cooking taco chicken from a new recipe. I'll let you know how it goes.




  1. Yay! Congratulations!

    Best of luck with port-related affairs. I know I can't wait to get this freaking hunk of plastic out.

  2. Thank you Armand! I'm with you on this wonderful foreign object we have in our bodies. It sucks, but I know it was good. Just like a root canal.

    Hope you are doing as well as can be with the chemo!
