    Today was my last day of 5Fu... All done with chemo, now just to recover from all of the side effects.

      That's a celebration day isn't it? Glad to hear you made it through and are ready for recovery. Let us know how it goes in the recovery mode.

    I had to ignore all online cancer information for a while, which included this wonderful message board. I was just too depressed to even think about what was going on. I took a vacation from cancer, except when I had to come back to reality for treatment. I'm feeling a little stronger now. I think I may be able to come back to reality again.

    Friday I had my port placed. I wasn't expecting it to knock me out of commission as much as it did. I think part of the problem is that my anemia keeps getting worse rather than better. Tuesday the oncologist told me if my numbers get any lower I'll need a transfusion. He want's to start chemo asap, I'm healed enough, but we're still waiting to hear from medicaid. Right now I'm just feeling tired and discouraged. I'm sure once I start sleeping better I'll be less suceptible to discouragement, but between being in pain, or buzzed from the percocett I'm not getting much sleep this week.
