This past Monday they added a 3rd chemo drug to the mix.  I had a reaction to it.  I got cold and the shakes real bad, like someone flipped a switch.   The nurses and doctor took care of this issues almost immediately.  I was scared bigtime when this happened.  Doctor told me that sometimes this happens and they would get me thru it, and they did.  Rest of the treatment went as normal for the day, and got my pump hooked up for the next 2 days.  Wednesday afternoon they removed the portable chemo pump and I went home.   Then I didn't feel good and was nausea the rest of the night.  Thankfully they gave me awesome nausea pills.  Thanksgiving morning I felt fine, so hopefully next treatment won't be as bad.  I'm definitely able to eat alot better than weeks ago.  I actually was again to eat a small portion of Thanksgiving dinner Kris made.  Just that little dinner made me feel alot better.   


Forgot to mention,  doctor thinks maybe in mid or late Dec, I can have this stent in my esophagus removed.  That would be a big deal.  That's it guys.

Sounds like things are moving in a positive direction which is awesome! One day at a time! I am glad you were able to partake in Thanksgiving dinner, that super important. Keep up the battle buddy!

You don't know your own strength till it is put to the test.  Definitely don't give up on participation in family activities.  It keeps the spirit alive.  God Bless.

Finished up round 3 of chemotherapy today.  Had my chemo pump removed, I have to wear it for 2 days.  Yes it sucks, can't do much with it hang around my neck.  Also got a surprise email today.  I had wrote my story about my cancer on the Washington football team page.  Well I was surprised that I actually got a response from Coach Rivera.  Yes it's actually from him, saw the email address.  I cried some, because he actually took the time to email me. 


So overall Im doing ok, eating pretty much normal food now.  Stent removal is on hold till this Covid crap calms down.  Also the cold sensitive finally hit me, yeah that totally sucks.  So I keep pushing ahead.

Hang in there man, every day is a new day!


Super cool that coach rivera reached out to you. I've heard from friends that lived in panther land that he is a genuinely super nice guy. Also super sorry to hear that you're a redskins fan, that must be tough the last 20 years or so (even tho they just beat my steelers).

Pretty awesome of the Coach to respond to you, Brian.  We have to do a lot of weird things when in this dire of a situation, but the light at the end of the tunnel is well worth it.  Stay strong.

I did not know that you were going through this. I don't check in here very often anymore. Bruce (brucelinc) gave me a heads-up. You (and Kris) are now included in my Prayers.

Just venting.  Think I just hit a wall in my treatment.  I don't know why it happened but it did.  Couldn't sleep to save my ass, even the prescription meds didn't work.  How I felt was so up and down all week, everyday, got to me.  Ive stayed positive thru all this, but even this week my mind was racing, even thinking about the inevitable.  With the new year upon us, now I'm freakin scared.  Scared that when I have the CT scan it will show that the spots on the liver haven't changed.  Then I worry about Kris and Kate, family and friends living without me.  Kris said alot of what I'm feeling is part of the side effects of the one chemo drug.  I just don't know anymore.  Treatment is tomorrow, so will talk with the doctor then.  Just had to get this off my chest.




Talk with oncologist today.  Looks like I'll be on some type of treatment for the rest of my life.  Then CT scan at the end of month before my 8th treatment.  So then we well see.





Thanks for listening guys.

Dont let your imagination or your thoughts run wild.  Steer back to the course you were doing good on.  The universe of terrible outcomes is infinite.  Keep that door closed.  You will do fine.

As for handling side effects, homeopathy, acupuncture, and medical marijuana are very viable options. Ask your doctors about them.
