Hi Mike. When my husband got chemo they told him to take his nausea meds no matter what to keep ahead of it . They also told him no salads or fruits because of his low immune system. When he couldn't eat I would get a can of cambells chicken noodle soup ,dump the juice and then rinse the noodles. This was about the only thing he could eat, just the bland noodles.
In 2011 aweek after I told the woman that had worked for us for eight and ahalf years that my bc was back and I needed to get treatment she stole five thousand dollars off us. she had been stealing from our company during my husbands cancer , my cancer ,our house fire and several families death. In the last fifteen years she stole off a bank , two lawyers and us. She spent a total of 4 months in jail. I saw her picture in our local paper last week smiling with the rescue squad. Don't be upset when the people that stole your wifes ipad don't have anything done to them. We live in a very messed up society.
My prayers are with you and you family you keep on going you will get thru this

George, you made me laugh today! Our daughter was a criminal justice major in college and she quotes one of her professors with, "don't commit a crime with someone else because the other guy always squeals" and "criminals aren't noted for being the brightest bulbs in the box they just think they are smarter than the rest of us". Too true or else why are prisons so crowded?

Hey Mike

Sorry I haven't been here this week to cheer you on.
Went to S.Carolina to vacation in the cold and rain and play some winter weather golf. Could not remember my ultracomplicated password. So I could merely lurk online and follow your progress.
It appears as though you have taken charge of your chemo and your ipad.
I was with a NY Judge at our condo and told her about your theft. She replied
"We aren't exactly working with rocket Scientists in my line of work"

Now ain't that the truth.

Keep those cards and letters coming Mike. We all want to know how to beat this thing. You are going to show us the way.

Riiiiiight, my toddler. Not buying that one. Was she another patient or heaven help us an employee? Love these apps! Just updated my iPad finder and sure enough shows my devices are all right here at good old 1320!

So glad you got checked out and things are going better today. The chemo will knock you out at times and as Jean says, just rest when your body says to. Jim and I watched all seasons of the show 24 which we hadn't seen before during his chemo. We would watch every afternoon as "rest time". If he didn't nap at least he was resting, plus there were more than one times when his chin hit his chest. And, that was just fine! When we finished with 24 we started another season of another show. It was a way to pass the time and get the rest he needed.

Take good care and will visit again soon! Carla

Yeah. The woman tried to blame her toddler. She was all over the map. No excuse for why they didn't call the phone number engraved on the back of it or in the alert box on the screen when they connected to the Internet at their house that said "This iPad is reported lost. Please call ###-####".

Got my day 8 chemo yesterday and I'm doing well. Copious amounts of blood in my urine and I'm on Cipro due to suspected infection but I think my fevers are basically "tumor fevers". My oncologist stopped in when I was finishing up my chemo in the study lab (saw the nurse practitioner prior to the chemo that day). He thanked me for getting checked at the ER. I was thinking, "Thank me??? You're the one working on saving my life. If you tell me go to the ER because a fever can get out of control in a hurry on chemo, I'm getting my hiney to the ER! No debate!"

Nice doc. I like him and the whole team from Brian at the reception desk, the pharmacist for my chemo, the nurses, NP, fellow, study coordinator, docs.... They are a great team and I know them all by first name!

Taking it easy today. My son's birthday was last week and we're heading over to their place to celebrate tomorrow.
