I'm going to keep this short and sweet (rather than the long ramble that I did yesterday) since I need to get some food home to Tanner.
They placed his triple lumen lines yesterday and actually had a harder time than they ever had before. I told him it's probably because he's building scar tissue from all the times they've inserted and removed in the past few months.
Today they hooked him up to his chemo bag and he will carry it for four days. They have scheduled us to go back and see Dr. Barlogie on December 10th and then on December 11th we see Dr. Nicholas. Tanner is going to be beyond upset of Dr. Nicholas doesn't remove the long cast on the 11th. If all goes as it should, we should be home a week to ten days after seeing Dr. B.
He wanted to go to Olive Garden to eat yesterday so he could have a salad since he knows lettuce and fresh vegetables are out of the question after his system starts to decline. After eating - and out of the blue - he asked me what I planned to do with myself after he and Trevor move out. I told him with treatment and possible future surgery, I don'tsee him moving out any time during the next year. He told me he understood that but that it would be happening in the near future and that he was worried about my future and thought I should start "thinking about going out". I asked him if he had any suggestions for a 47 year old whose idea of a good time is a book at home. He told me maybe the bookstore - or Match.com.
He can be quite funny sometimes - though he's quite serious and I guess worries about me as I worry about him.
Anyway, I just got through skyping with my boss (while sitting in my car!) and it's getting late so I guess I should go and grab Tanner some food and head back to the aparatment.
They are supposed to send someone out to fix the internet tomorrow so I hope they will come when I can actually meet them there. I need the internet to be able to work. Barnes and Nobles is not condusive to actually being able to work - and print!
