Today was another visit to the nursing faculty. Thank goodness it is only 6blks. from home.
Most of the x hubby goes in the morning, me in the afternoon. Every day. Some days you can tell he doesn't feel well. Other days we see the personality that has always been hidden. His sisters have always said that when they call him, he will said very few words and say goodbye, then hang up! Now, he'll even carry on a conversation! Where that ability has been all these years,, I don't know!!!

This past Wednesday he had his iron infusion. They said he may have to have another one. Next Tuesday he is scheduled to have his first Chemo. They will put a solo drip pump in the port. Then he will need to go back on Thursday to have the pump removed. Then repeat in two weeks until the first week of January unless there is another problem.

They took him to the nursing faculty s barber shop yesterday and buzzed off his grey hair and grey beard! That way, when he starts his chemo and loses his hair, it won't be much of a mess for them to clean up ! I hurt so for him! I wish I could take it away from him and put it in my bod.. I felt that way with my younger daughter 6 yrs. ago when she had breast cancer.

We have had problems with his insurance. There was a review, but, I don't think I need to say how that went. They ruled against us!

    Praying everything goes well for your husband and no complications. Insurance companies are a pain. It would be nice if they were more worried about their clients than making a lot of money.

    Thanks for posting an update, I'd wondered how he and you were doing. Sorry the insurance company is being a problem. You must be just totally exhausted by it all. Sending hugs and prayers.

    Ugh to insurance companies. I am sorry to hear that!

    If I ever have chemo (I may not if I think it would be too much trouble), I will tell them to get the wig maker and have them use my own hair for the wig.
