Inventory Check!

I just finished my 10th and last radiation treatment for the enlarged lymph node in my left pelvic area. I was hoping to get all the “burns” in before any positive Coronavirus results for my county were announced. But alas, there were 2 confirmed cases on Monday and that number has risen to 7 as of today.

Now that the radiation regimen is completed, I still have an Opdivo infusion coming up next Wednesday. After that, barring any major, unforeseen, personal medical events (like another freakin’ stroke), I can really hunker down to weather the impending Coronavirus maelstrom.

As you might have guessed, I fall into the high risk, immune-system-compromised, Coronavirus group. D’oh! If I DO get sick when the hospitals are overflowing, and the inevitable “triage” policy is instituted, the triage nurse is gonna walk right past me and I’ll smile and wave her/him by. At this point in my life, what more can happen to me? LOL!

On the bright side, I decided to take inventory on my beloved stress-and-anxiety-reducing cannabis product stash…

Between my stash and the frequent warm embraces of Katy Kahuna, I think I’m good to go for quite awhile, dontcha think?

    Glad to hear radiation is done – hope successful. Did Opdivo Infusion go well. This Covid 19 virus has been a nightmare. I hope you are able to stay away from that. Praying for you and our buddy Ed. He’s been through quite an ordeal as well. Hang in there my friend.

      Hi Craig, thanks for stopping by buddy 👍. This virus is indeed cray cray 😜

      I’m doing well. I had a CT scan last week and it showed that the radiation is working to shrink my pelvic tumor. Opdivo is still working for me. What a wonder drug!

      I also spoke to Ed a couple of times. He’s been struggling a bit as his doctors continue to bring his new kidney online. He’s been in and out of the hospital a couple of times in the midst of this plague so he needs more prayers right now than me.

      I hope you and your family are doing well!
