It was a pretty drive this morning from PDL to PC. There was dew on the ground and early morning sun on the leaves. It was a nice leisurely drive.
We arrived at the oncologists office early and got in and got started early. The first thing they did was do a blood test to assure that Doug was absorbing the chemo well and the nurse said everything was great. So he settled back on his recliner and played on the computer. This was the third of six scheduled treatments and Doug feels great! He has had no side effects. He will get some blood work next week and if that continues to be good, we are considering another "vacation" trip to pass the time until the next treatment.
JoAnn went off to her appointment. She had a routine mammogram and they had someone there to read it immediately so she found out she is good to go for another year. She went to Wally World to pick up some Rxs for Doug. When Doug was finished we headed to a nearby barbeque joint for a good lunch. While she got her hair styled, Doug found a fuel stop and got the truck filled up.
We then went to another drug store so Doug could get an new blood pressure cuff. The one he has had for years shot its plug out of its bulb in a successful suicide attempt.
We took a different route back to PDL. All in all we had a nice easy day.
Fillmore on the other hand had a different day. When he got out of the truck yesterday upon our arrival the first thing he did was race around the house. The next thing he did was find a cat to chase up a tree. After a few more laps he settled down Doug lost track of him for a few minutes as he was setting up the rig. This morning Fillmore looked a little green around the gills and refused his breakfast. So it was obvious that he found the animal buffet they leave out on one his his passages. It always makes him sick but he can't seem to make the connection. He spent the day in the rig but we were surprised to find no "surprises" on the floor when we got back.
JoAnn and Susie went for a long walk this evening; more mother daughter bonding. Last night Maddy, a young friend of the family came by after church to eagerly see her Adopted Grandma JoAnn. They met a year ago when J visited here and bonded. She will join us for dinner tomorrow night if her work schedule permits. JoAnn has kitchen duty tomorrow.
