News from my "Doctor"

I was under the impression all this time that I would have a pet Scan after my 4th round, followed by surgery. I was mistaken.

The purpose of the upcoming scan is only to determine if the cancer is shrinking, how much, and how fast. They won't be doing surgery for quite a while, even if the cancer has backed away from the "danger" areas (my sigmoid colon, bladder, liver, and abdominal wall). I'm sure this is what my "doctor" meant all along; I was just conceptualizing the process differently than he, and wrongly.

So this means chemotherapy into the foreseeable future. But the upside of it is that I will be able to travel home for a bit over the xmas break. I don't know when just yet, but I will definitely be coming for a visit. If I'm not in the hospital or recovering from surgery, I'm certainly not going to just sit around Atlanta in the moderate to warm weather and the blue skies.........wait a minute.....

In other news, in terms of blood counts and such, my "doctor" says that I am tolerating the chemotherapy quite well. A normal, healthy adult has a white blood cell count of somewhere around 8000-10,000. My white count, thanks to the $6000 Neulasta shots I get, is -- are you ready...........

15,000!!

That means that I'm healthier than all of you who are reading this.

My doctor did not bring up the subject of the letter that I sent him, the one where I detailed the incompetence of his office staff, etc. He stood across the room from me until it was time for him to actually examine me. I think he's clearly afraid of me, which means that aside from all of his shortcomings as a physician and a professional, he's not entirely stupid.

Hi son!

I've finally found time to say hi & figure out how to post a comment! Great news about your blood tests, I'm so happy that you are healthy and it's only going to get better. You sounded really good on the phone today & I'm sorry I couldn't stay on longer. It's been a week from hell! They put the new computer system on line & we've been trying to figure out just how to navigate & get things done but it has not been successful. Needless to say we're all very frustrated! Anyway, I'm glad you are doing as well as you are with the D----treatments. I'm sure they're not easy, but it sounds like things could be worse. I am looking so forward to spending Thanksgiving with you, just wish we had more time! We will make good of the time we have, and don't you worry about having to entertain us in any way. There will be time for all of that later. I enjoy your blog, it's great! And the pictures are great to. I'm glad Asa & Andrea were able to be there & spend some time with you. They said they had a really good time. Asa is in Farmington, NM right now but at least he didn't have to go until after Andreas' birthday. Well, I hope you're feeling good & having some fun! I will give you a call tomorrow or Sunday, okay. You take care, you're in my thoughts always. I love you

Dear Chet & everyone,

Just want to say hi to all and to thank all of you out there that have been so supportive to Chet. You guys and gals will never know how much I appreciate all you've and do for Chet. I have met some of you and hope someday to meet the rest of you. We should try to plan a big party once Chet is free of cancer & has his life back. I know there are great things in store for him. And I know he is very thankful & grateful to all of you for being there for him. I thank everyone of you so much!!! Hope you're feeling good Chet and will see you Tuesday night!

Love,
Mom
