met with the pain doc, Dr. Glare..super nice as always..I’ve been having this pain in my left leg that has been increasing, so he is upping 1 of my pain meds and adding a muscle relaxer to see if that combo works

Met with Dr.Traina, my oncologist…greeted with hugs as usual and feels lovely every time. Told her I needed to add an additional med for constipation and she said to take an extra dose of lactulose. This made me very happy because I happen to love the taste…(like Maple Syrup)
She scheduled my next scans for June 22nd which is good, and in the meantime we continue on with the Eribulin.

Squeezed in a quick therapy session with the great Dr.Massie, so I could get to treatment. The 20 minutes were utilized well, but we didn’t need to rush because we have been sitting here waiting for treatment for about an hour. My sweet Ange is asleep next to me. Poor thing still has to go get me a prescription when we get home because they don’t have it at the Sloan pharmacy. And if I haven’t explained myself well,I can only walk about 1 to 2 blocks. So I’m stuck at home, and really relying on Ange and everyone to get anything I need. (I don’t like that)

I’m pretty sure we decided to finally get a port. If I do go through with it, I want to to it soonish, so i can do it before i go back to the office.

This has been my day so far starting at 1:30 to 5:21 as we still wait for treatment..

Jen I wish I were closer because I would come and sit with you and then Ange could go get your meeds and we could meet him home! Unfortunately I am not close enough to do that so sending my love, hugs and support with a lot of positive strength your way to help get you through the rest of your day. I’m going to check your task schedule and see if I can help with your next appointment. I will be in touch soon. Love to you and Ange! Xoxo Tina

Sounds like you had a productive but tiring day. Praying hard that Eribulun is the answer. Wish that pain would go away soon.

Love You

Hi love. I am sensing (and also hoping) that Eribulin is the answer. The port sounds like a good idea- no more needles. I am praying that the pain goes away soon babe. Hopefully you are resting now. Love you!
