Home from Our Trip South

As it is late, I'm just going to say at this point that we had a really wonderful trip to Mississippi and Texas. We got home last night about 2am.

My sisters Suzie & Diane arrived from Prescott today. We will be seeing Dr. Bergen tomorrow to discuss various plans and to get my second chemo on the FOLFOX pump. I will have physical therapy on Friday and am checking in with my local doctor as well. A home health nurse will be in charge of flushing my port.

I'm tapering off the steroids which will make life easier for everyone. My leg is starting to hurt as I'm tapering off, so we are concerned about that. The leg pain is from the radiation recall, not cancer or any other treatment.

Just up here in Colorado, headed to bed.

Thanks again for prayers and so forth.

Sincerely, Caroline

Thanks for providing information and treatment options for this disease. My wife has the same type cancer you have and we follow your experiences and treatments closely. When her legs started swelling with the current treatment I read with interest your experience and the term "radiation recall"..and we will discuss her previous leg radiation and Gemzar with the oncologist tomorrow...
Thanks for being a role model for all cancer patients.
