Just dropping in to say Hi.

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody,

Hav'nt been posting much in recent days. Just don't have much to say right now I guess.

We are one week passed third chemo treatment. Basically went pretty smoothly. Adding the Percoset after the Nulasta injection really helped this time. About the only new issue is some tongue soreness. Not enough to affect appetite though.

Stiill, and even more so, the big issue here is extreme shortness of breath. Using home oxygen, nebulizer treatments, and if anything, breathing is getting worse. This has us both very concerned, and depressed. Hank is not nearly as concerned about the cancer as he his about his breathing decline. We have an appointment with his pulmonologist scheduled for Wednesday. I do hope that there is something more that we can do to rehabilitate him to a good extent.

All the best,

Hi Gail,

I just saw your post.

I am sorry that Hank is still having the s.o.b. issues. My thoughts are that seeking out the pulmonologist may lead to a solution.

Hopefully, Wednesday may bring Hank and you something good toward resolving that.

Keeping you in thoughts,
