There Today!

We were actually at the surgeon's office today and the catheter is OUT!  Simple procedure, just a local anesthetic, and Roger says he didn't really feel the sting of the needle even.  (took hydrocodone & Valium before we left the house, I think it helped).  The doctor let me watch, it was pretty nifty, and she let me take a few pictures. It was just fun!  Roger is happy!  He was even flirting with the surgeon.
Roger is still fatigued from last infusion.  Bone scan and lab work on Oct. 16.  Oncologist visit Oct.23

Not there again

We were not there at the surgeon's office again.
Roger forgot to NOT take his plavix on Saturday, and he needs to be off plavix for 4 days.  Surgeon didn't want to take a chance on him bleeding.
So we were not there again.
New appointment scheduled for Wednesday.
