3 good things (father-in-law version) August 11, 2009

Posted by Beth in Uncategorized.

1.  We got a primo parking spot at Kaiser yesterday when I took him to one of his appointments. Someone pulled out just as we pulled in. (Small things are important too.)

2. Expecting an injection in his eyeball to prevent macular degeneration, (having seen and done a lot as an ER doc, that’s one procedure I can’t stand to watch!)  he was told there had been no significant change and he didn’t need the shot!!

3. It’s been four weeks since he’s needed a thoracentesis to drain the fluid from his chest cavity–which means the chemo is doing something good. There was only a week between the first and second, and then 2 weeks between the second and third. Now 4 full weeks, and though I can hear that some fluid is present, it’s not nearly as much and he is asymptomatic.
