Altosinger’s Husband

Frum mai emayo inbox:

Just a reminder that Scott’s chemo starts on the 23rd—it is instilled into the bladder itself, so we avoid the worst of the side effects. The first time they told us about it, the nurse said “installed” in stead of “instilled”, and my mental picture had something to do with monkey wrenches and power tools! Oops. But in any case, please keep us in your prayers, folks–i continue to pray for you when i hear of things needing prayer, even when i don’t write.
Love you all bunches—janey (altosinger)

    • No, darlin’–it just goes into the bladder proper; it’s not IV and so we escape the worst of the possible side effects. Now, he’s not going to be a very happy camper; imagine a 6-week UTI! But it won’t poison his entire system, praise GOD. It could be SO much worse. He starts Thursday at about 9:30 AM PDT. Please keep up the prayers; thanks to the Auntie depressant the anxiety is not overwhelming him, but it is there. Peace, grace, and any other goodies like that would be most helpful–and especially the joy of the LORD that is our strength. Thank you, sweetheart. i do appreciate it!
      Love you bunches! –janey

    This is week two; so far, no side-effects. They warned us he might be tired, but with all the other health thingies going on, how could we tell? We went to the Central Washington State Fair on Friday the 20-somethingth–i think 4th–and had a good time; we went the next night as well because the fair admission paid for the Guess Who concert, and had a nice time then as well. But we are not seeing anything untoward. His white count is up a little, but he has been having a minor flare-up of the colitis. I need to make him oatmeal for breakfast (we don’t know why it works, just that it works) a couple days in a row, and that will take care of that. Otherwise, things are good. Your prayers are helping! Please keep them up!
    Thank you all!
    Love you lotses! —janey (altosinger)
