What A Way To Finish January

So yesterday I had another attempt at Dioxil (how ever you spell it). They gave me a lot of pre drugs hydration and started the drip real slow, it went well, then they up it by 10 and then any other 10. I went to the restroom and noticed a little rash at my wrists when I got back to my chair it had spread. I showed my nurse and she decided it was a reaction and she stopped the chemo. They called my Dr and she said that this chemo would not work and they we needed to stop. She suggested we need to talk about what we would do next. She said we could meet a little later or another day. I said I was here and lets go ahead and do it today. So we are working down the treatments and the list is getting thinner. The next two possible are a chemo Topopain which is given weekly. Or a pill taken daily for two weeks on and two weeks off. I went ahead and opted for the weekly treatment. When they called to schedule the treatments will actually three weeks of treatment and one week off. I really like Dr Jeske she is so supportive spends time letting me talk.
