Let's do drugs!... or not...

"Let's do drugs!"  That is that the smiling nurse at the cancer center says as she calls a patient's name and has them head to the back for their infusion.  It always kind of cracks me up.  JaNae and I got up yesterday, got ready, and made the dreaded drive to the cancer center in anticipation of her next treatment. She was in pretty good spirits and as I was driving through the morning rush hour traffic yelled "Drive it like you stole it!"

Anyway, as we were going through the process and getting her lab results, we were told that her liver enzymes were elevated and discussed with the doctor possible reasons why. One of the medications she recently started will be discontinued to see if it is the cause. The oncologist decided we needed to wait a week and recheck her liver before JaNae gets more chemo.  JaNae was so happy to have another week feeling well that she immediately announced that I'd be taking her (and the kids) out to lunch... which I did...  JaNae said it was just like getting a get out of jail free card.  We had a great day.
