Live from the drip

8:54 a.m.
I have my own private room for this today and they found a vein! Reading lots of magazines and the new Jacqueline Kennedy book - Later - and thanks for being there!

9:00 a.m.
Bon chance ... avec Jacqueline. Queue me up for the book.

9:33 a.m.
And with your chemical cocktail sounds like a good PTO!!

10:15 a.m.
I'll live blog it so keep me updated.

10:16 a.m.
K- currently in a private room getting fluids and chemo and reading Jacqueline Kennedy - historic conversations on life with John F. Kennedy.

Joe has been cordially invited to spend the day with the President and Mrs. Kennedy.
The Kennedys and a slew of doctors and nurses with needles, chemicals and radiation equipment.

10:35 a.m.
Drinking cranberry and apple juices - Bev and Lisa are looking for ways to fatten me up.

2:40 p.m.
Sounds like a good chemo drip day!!! XOXO from D.C.!

2:45 p.m
Still there?

2:46 p.m.
Still here - last hour then radiation.

2:54 p.m.
Hope Jackie O is still keeping you entertained.

3:26 p.m.
She did her best - I have a seat on the bus so home soon. What a day for my little body -

4:01 p.m.
Let me know when you're, sound and aglow.

4:14 p.m.

4:15 p.m.


Today was the best day since getting out of the hospital a week ago - temperature good, energy getting back to what it was and all of that putting me in the right frame of mind for my second 6 hour session of chemo followed by the daily radiation treatment - Last session of chemo was as an in-patient and happened while I slept so I was not sure what to expect - today was private room with juices and lunch and all painless with lots of time for catching up on magazines and my book - Trying to stuff myself to put on some weight and looking forward to a good night's sleep and whatever (besides Thompson!) tomorrow brings!

  1. Joe,

    I am blogging for the first time, and it's with you!!! You popped my blogging cherry! (uncomfortable silence)

    Anyway, I have a couple of trashy books if you need them. Someone gave me the new Kathy Griffin book that I can hand off to you when I see you next month. Hope I'm doing this right! Love you!!!!
