GOD BLESSED me today, I got a call a few minutes ago from my Oncologist saying that the PET Scan shows nothing more then the CT Scan did which is very rare. So I don't have more to worry about right now, THANK GOD.


I had a good day at work, other then dropping our Lincoln 250 welder while unloading it off the trailer when the chain broke. Luckily it didn't do any real damage to it. It did bend the Radiator support a little, so I'll straighten that out when I get the chance, but it runs and welds just fine after dropping it.

Brian, please update us, I am starting to worry.

Brian, please update us, I am starting to worry.

 

Jesse, Brian is doing ok.  Just spoke with him on the phone.  He's just got his hands full right now, mentally & physically, and he's still around GTtalk, but mostly reading.  He won't be getting his chemo port in tomorrow as was planned.  His Dr has too many irons in the fire.  Hopefully they will do the procedure ASAP!   Brian has been working at his shop & doing pretty decent.  Was great talking with him.

Thanks for the update, I feel a little better now, I looked and seen he was on this afternoon.

 

I hope the report comes soon, waiting is nerve wracking.

Brian's surgeon called him tonight & does have an opening for putting in the chemo port tomorrow morning at 9AM Central Time.  He will let us know once he's back home from the procedure.

Brian has his port installed.  Surgery went well.  He does however feel as though he broke his collar bone.  They went through his chest & implanted a port that connects to veins under & behind the collar bone.  They simply put a needle through the skin, and into the port for the chemo.

Wow! Odd place for one. Mine was right in front on right  side of chest, kind of just under skin. I DID have a bigger one put in later on Left side, with several tubes coming out of it. That was more PIA and had to change the cover bandage a lot. Was OUT for insert, but awake for Out take. WAS supposed to just pull out with local anesthesea ? , but had really grown in there over the bump on end of tube and was quite a pull. That was more sore then afterward. Both bled quite a bit when first put in. Looked alarming, yet Nurses said was normal at first. I still have the small insert. Looks like a stainless  circle about 1/1/4" diam with soft rubberish bulb in cent and just a little tube about 10" long sticking out of it. It Does still hurt a bit with needles going in, cause of skin over it, but they give you a lotion to put on and kind of numb it some that works OK I guess. The one with tubes sticking out, of course, you never feel,ha! I was hooked up all the time to drips and had to pee about every 1/2 hour in hospital, got to be a routine all day and night! Never slept much in those times.

I didn't do a good job describing it.  The port is on his right side chest, but where the port connects to the vein is under his collar bone.

A third nipple should make him eligible for extra benefits.

Brian, I have the same rainbow of colors going on. Dark hair, light mustache, and a beard that started black and goes white one hair at a time when the kids act up. I can tell your kids are older than mine.

My dad quit growing a beard when I turned 15. Now I understand why.

Does your wife handle all the camera duties? We seem to be real short on shots of the nursing staff.
