Yesterday I received dose 13 of Abraxane (and some Avastin, but I'm not counting the number of times I've had that drug). All went well, except that Swedish just upgraded the computer system and Dr G and his staff were not ready for it. As Minor and James gets more integrated into the Swedish system, I am sure things will improve. But in the meantime Dr G had a hard time implementing his orders digitally. And he may have been at the Swedish doctors' meeting from 8 - 9 AM when they all got a lesson in the new upgraded system.
So my early 8 AM arrival didn't matter, since Dr G wasn't in his office until after 9:00. I sat in the waiting room from 8:00 until 11:00, reading, doing the crossword puzzle, and chatting with a friend. Luckily, by the time they took me back to the infusion center, my drugs had arrived from the pharmacy and we got started right away. I was finished just after noon, making this the longest chemo day yet at four hours.
I have had a small sore on my tongue for a few days. It was annoying but not really painful. The infection is my toe from a manicure in mid-August has still been bothering me, so Dr G put me on an antibiotic, and I think that has helped the mouth sore as well. It's not bugging me at all and is practically gone.
And for those who recall, I took a mammoth nap the other day, but awoke after only an hour feeling refreshed and ready to go grocery shopping.
