I'm sitting here receiving my fifth treatment out of a total of 18 treatments (six rounds of three treatments). Things are going well with very little incident. We got a late start Tuesday evening so I didn't get much sleep but today they started 4 hours earlier so we should be done at 10:30 pm which should allow for a better night. Hopefully they can push back tomorrow's treatment so I can be discharged in the evening.
The nursing staff has started a new initiative on the floor to have daily social get togethers for all the families the survivors. It has been really enjoyable and a good way to socialize with people in our same situation. Would you believe there are two other people with liposarcomas in their legs on the floor? If sarcomas effect 0.8% of the population then the liposarcomas effect an even smaller fraction, and three of us are being treated here at the same time.
It was good to hear everybody's stories. Both survivors are at the end of their treatments and are doing very well, quoting a "99.9% elimination" of their tumors. I look forward to telling the same stories in a couple of months.
I'm finishing up the Iphosfamide now.. What a bitch! That one goes right to the head! Barf!
