No I don't mean that Mr. T but Mr. Thalidomide. Dr SB has decided that under no circumstances will he be prescribing aspirin for Mike and no aspirin means no T. So next Monday Mike has an appointment for his first dose of Mr. Velcade to be taken along with Mr. Dex (he doesn't mind me shortening his name!) I'm sure the drill will be familiar to some of you, I'm not too sure how two days of Dex followed by one day off will work out, but at least there is the ten days off to look forward to. Our biggest issue is of course that Mike only gets one day off in seven, so treatment will have to be done on two half days, resulting in no real quality time until the ten days off.
I shouldn't laugh really, but Mike has been on so many tablets in just a few weeks that his record sheet is starting to look like a pharmacy stock take! In the meantime he is still taking his Mesna (affectionately known as Mensa, he has a very intelligent bladder now), ultra-sound on Thursday (I hope it isn't twins) and a nervous wait to see the urologist who will be doing a cystoscopy (I think I'll pass on the holiday snaps from that camera.)
I think I'm going to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet for now. I get the feeling things may soon be getting hectic again!
