Let me just take a moment to say that if you gotta get chemo then Dr Olsen is your man-he is very caring and attentive,you never feel rurried(thats Scoobydoo lango for Hurried and Rushed) He just flat out ROCKS!
Yesterdays appointment was a follow up before daddy starts his chemo on Aug 25th. We scheduled his cancer class,asked more questions-Thank goodness the faloozie was there, she's a Nurse and she knows all the "right" questions to ask.
Now some of you might know daddy is a "mangosteen" pusher,some people push wine,pens,bud light w/lime,the pedal to the metal, but daddy's vice is mangosteen-so he walks into the office carrying this bottle of "juice".
In his defense the Doc did ask him to bring it in, along with some info on the product-In brief, mangosteen is a concentrate juice that is a healthy drink-that some people claim has "wellness" benfits-This is what I noticed, when you walk into an office full of Cancer patients, carrying a bottle of "blood red" watery stuff,people notice.
Daddy may have found his "target" group-he is already planning to leave his pamplets dotted around the office and he will have 4 hrs, 3 days a week, a month to
*disclaimer* I am in no way shape OR form making fun of or trying to discredit or take away from the devestating diease known as Cancer-We/I have chosen to deal with this time in our life NOT as a sickness-rather we will attack this treatment with humor and positives-IT WILL NOT WIN! If I were to sit here and dwell on all the "what ifs" I would be a sad,very sad wife,mother,daughter,sister,friend-So before anyone posts anymousely and says what a horrible person I am for in a sense "mocking" Please just know we all deal with the trials and tribulations in our lives differently-I would respect you-This is my way of showing Cancer that daddy WILL kick its assa!
After the appt we went next door to the hospital to have daddy's port put in-the port will make it easier to recieve his chemo treatments and anything else that may need to be given through an IV.
Here's the ever Beautiful Faloozie and my nephew with Daddy
Daddy's port insertion went well-the nurse gave him a valium and he wanted to know what that was-I told him "it makes ya grow boobs"
Now that daddy was taken care of and in the good hands of the faloozie-it was time to get middle bean to football practice-thats him there in the white T-shirt that says "middle bean"
Because he could be surrounded by these
and have his walls decorated like this
