FOLFOX Round 9: Or is it faux FOX

Leucovorin was in short supply, so it was excluded from my treatment regimen this round.  It's a freakin' vitamin, how can there be a shortage.  I think I'll have to start getting my drugs at GNC.  Of course, GNC supplements may contain banned substances, which will disqualify me from the 2010 World Cup.  As I was never even invited to training camp, this won't be a big deal.  However, I have been repeatedly invited to buy tickets.

Actually it should be FOLFOXCAMAGALOXIDEX because it includes :Calcium and Magnesium (to dampen the neuropathy), Aloxi (for nausea), dexamethasone (to increase the efficacy of the Aloxi),

The good thing was that I remembered to shave this time, sparing me the agony of tape removal.  You want terrorists to talk?  Rip their chest hair off with medical tape.

If you attend any PTA meetings, or any meetings whatsoever, read this blog.  you'll recognize some of the players, but i hope it's not in the mirror.

Finally, for the deep thinkers, Dan has a book recommendation.


  1. DadRyan saw "acid" and screamed: "I'm in!"

    Closing in a year since our first meeting. We need to have a beer at the BeerGarden to celebrate.

  2. Lost that friend of mine to stomach cancer today, I-270. 35 years old.

  3. I'm sorry for your loss. I hope he went peacefully, surrounded by loved ones.

  4. Thanks. As you can imagine, quite an up and down (or down and up) day.

    Guess when the funeral is? Yup.

  5. Sorry for your loss, Reignking.

  6. Reignking, I don't know you but you're a Phillies fan so you must be OK. I am sorry for your loss. It is tough to lose a friend before his time. We expect to lose grandparents, and when you reach my age, parents,but it is especially hard to see a life ended much too soon.
