No Mo' IV Chemo

Huzzah, six fun filled months of shitty chemo finished. Now just six more months of less-shitty chemo to go. Things are lookin' up.

I'm roasting a chicken tomorrow. What the frig do you do with giblets?

I make the bomb chili, boyeeee....

So I'm back in Halifax and feeling fine. My last dose of IV chemo was moved to this coming Tuesday, so I've had a week to relax and recover from my hospital ordeal.

I made chili yesterday. It's the best chili you've never had. Come over and get some. Aight.

Bye Bye Sydney...

Hello Halifax. In a few hours, anyways.

Wednesday, January 11, 2006

a quick update:

yup. still kathryn.
and i lied, apparently. iain is still in the sydney regional hospital. he has been transferred to what he referred to as "the cancer section", but i'm sure it has a better name.

his fever seems to be gone, or at least under control and the problems he was having with his mouth have been taken care of. the doctors are keeping him on the antibiotics just until his white counts come up enough to keep him safe to travel home.

a few days, maybe?

i went up to visit him on the weekend, and he's doing just fine. a little nausea from the medication, but he'll be home soon.

i'll post again if i get any new information. hopefully, the next post will not be written by me.

important updates for iain's faithful readers:

firstly, this is iain's girlfriend kathryn.

secondly, if you have been trying to get a hold of iain, or wondering why the hell his blog has gone so untended for so long, here's the scoop:

While visiting his parents in Sydney after christmas, Iain's immune system decided to take a nosedive, landing him in the hospital with a fever and a swollen mouth. This was monday, Jan 1, and he is still there recieving antibiotics and being cared for by professionals. Don't worry, he's okay and very safe. He should be home in the next few days, as he has chemo here in Halifax on Tuesday.

I'll try to update here if I have any more news.
