Today I'm done with the chemo!!  I thought I would lose Dilbert, but last night they discovered redness and slight swelling all around my pic line.  I then got IV antibiotics and I'm still getting hydration as a precaution.  So Dilbert stays with me a little longer.  So the man who had been going to bed between 7:30 and 8:30 was up until 0100hrs.  I still feel good, still miss home, the boys, and work.  It's a beautiful sunny day here, would be great to feel it directly and not through a window.  Ah the things we take for granted every day.
God Bless,

Ok, so I had an ultra sound of my blood vessels to see what was going on with the pic line area.  Turns out I have a blood clot.  Hard to believe someone with such low platelets could produce a blood clot.  I didn't find out how this gets treated yet but no one seems to excited about it and I was warned by the tech that put it in this could happen.  I also want to thank everyone for the comments, thoughts, prayers and cards.  I feel VERY BLESSED.
