Ken was released from the hospital today. I brought him home to a much relieved dog and a cat that can't wait to cuddle. It really was a heartwarming reunion.
Drum roll please:
We have FOUR (4) radiation treatments and one (1) chemotherapy treatment left to go!! Monday through Thursday will be big days for us. There will be NO taking chances of ANY kind until this treatment plan has been completed. That's not to say that we will become crazy fools on Friday. Actually, the doctors told Ken that the two weeks following the end of this treatment may well be the worst of all. This is because the radiation is cumulative in scope, and continues to do it's dirty little business for a two week period after actual radiation treatment ceases. So, we will be patient and grateful for the fact that at least we won't have to have our early morning calls at the cancer center. We will be able to sleep until the sun comes up!! (I simply can't wait to watch NCIS again.)
Ken's weight is still holding, and he is able to smile again. I don't think he knows what he is smiling about, but that's beside the point. He was more than happy to pose for this picture shortly before the nurse brought in the discharge paperwork.
The weekend begins...NOW!!!!
Enjoy your life. Enjoy those you love. Enjoy!
