In the day oncology unit

Felix and I hanging out while I receive my Herceptin infusion via my portacath – hence – I can use both hands to play with Buzz Bear (one of his many names). He’s so well behaved that he even goes to sleep under the flourescent lights, ignores the pinging machines and shuts out the noise of talking nurses and patients.

Today was the official last dose of Herception (BIG) as far as the BETH trial is concerned. However, I was offered to return one last time tor receive a third of the dose to cap off my year of Herceptin, which my oncologist usually gives. As I’m belt and braces when it comes to my breast cancer I’m taking the last smaller dose. One last time and then I can get my portacath out. Oh … we’re getting there folks.
