Today is treatment #10 of merck's anti-pd1. The positive of the day is my good friend Julie is starting the bms trial with Ipi and after 2+ years it's the first time we have appointments on the same day! So it was nice to have a familiar face to hang out with!
Blood work was pretty uneventful. At least the process of getting it taken. I still stop by the 4th floor and have the IV put in and blood drawn. It's nice to only get stuck once but then I get to walk around all day with an IV in. And my skin doesn't particularly care for the tape!
Then it's off to the 5th floor to see Dr D! First i have to have vitals done. This would have been done in the past with the blood draw but they use this as a way to let them know I've arrived for the 5th floor and doctor check in. I get called back for blood pressure, temp, and weight! Then it's back to waiting.
It's not too long and I'm called in to meet with the nurse and doctor. They always ask about my sinus congestion and brittle nails. All much better now! :). No major issues for the check up.
Then I met Julie and her mom and head to get some food down the street. Typically I just hang out in the waiting room. Of course I get like 2 bites of food in and see a call from Sloan coming in. I hope it's them telling me my chemo is ready but I know it generally takes 2 hours from doctor check to drug mixed and ready. Seems my bilirubin is high. This seems to happen every now and then. I must go back to have blood drawn again.
Bit of a rainy/gloomy day! Guess it was appropriate given the task... But makes for some fun pictures!
It's the first of the month! Great time to remind you to check your skin!
