Oh boy - didn't realize she was still continuing treatments after the negative test results with the body scan. The good "take away" is that she already did great with the last test and these steps will only ensure that she's that much more "in the clear". Keep on keepin' on. (insert images of monkeys hanging from branches) :wink:

Bummer man,it's one day at a time.This 6 months will give her many years of spoiling grand kids.I wish it was painless bro'.She's got a great support team behind her and we're all rooting for the best too. {-

Its freaking cold here snow everywhere I could be singing white Christmas...two weeks ago I was playing at the beach in Long Beach...WTH... :shock:

I have under armor and Mrs.Plook got me a good Hurley jacket...I forgot my hat…dam… :|

I cut my hair short because the wife wacked hers to a short crop, she said I did not have to shave my head, but I will cross that bridge when we get there...I get the feeling there will be many to traverse in our not to distance future... :?:

I scored an upgrade on the flight from Denver to Chicago, Denver airport closed the smoking lounge in Terminal B (unfreaking believable, dam Nazis). There is still a smoking restaurant in Terminal C, but short lay over’s will not allow time... :P

Well off to the races, big internal meeting tomorrow downtown and then we meet with AT&T on Wednesday downtown and we go to the AT&T Labs to check some new cutting edge equipment we put in there for them to test... :twisted:

If MRS.Plook gets to feeling sick to the stomac,MM does work to relieve the nausea.It's just hard to get those first few hits in ya,so that's where a vaporizor would be great.It's just like breathing with pot flavored air and you get the same effect.When I was sick,MM didn't get me stoned,it just took away the nausea,if she's worried about that cool little side effect.
Give her my best bro'! :wink:

It turns out that the reason Mrs.Plook is getting intense pain from her White Blood Cell shot is due to the fact that her count is staying amazingly high on its own. A person undergoing Chemo normally has 1,500 (per some measure I don't know), she has 16000, that is causing a white blood cell overload to her bones and this is what is causing the pain...her doctor said she had never heard of a Chemo patient with such a high white blood cell count, so they say its good news... :|

She is very depressed because everyone was amazed she still had her hair and last night it started coming out in clumps...she has always been a well dressed fashionable, beautiful women…and well her hair is not a measure of who she is, I can only imagine the pain it causes to slowly have your appearance and your dignity stripped away... :|

I getting choked up, I need to stop now… :cry:

Well, focusing on the good - it sounds great that she has such a high white blood cell count. The pain and loss of hair are certainly a downer. Again, the good news is that both are temporary and years down the line, this will hopefully all be viewed as a mark of triumph. Hang in there, man....

Hard emotional times for you and Mrs. Plook,but in the long run,the hair will grow back and the pain will subside,take it one day at a time bro'.As for Mrs.Plook losing her dignity,that's impossible,she will always be a dignified lady to anyone who knows her or just met her for the first time.Some folks got it and she's got it in spades and this doesn't change that one iota man! Your a lucky guy Plook,it's natural to worry,but from what your sayin' the docs say.She's doing much better than expected.That's good news man! Your cup is half full so to speak bro'.Like PIB sez: "Focus on the good." 8)
Give her my best as always. :wink: {-

Thanks again, Mrs.Plook was in good spirits last night the Daughter Plook the Elder and her husband drove up from Long Beach to spend the weekend, as well the Daughter Plook the Younger is there too. Unfortunately Izzy caught a cold so she is staying with her Dad, Mrs.Plook can't be exposed to any viruses due to her treatments, they inhibit the immune system.

Mrs.Plook has decided that she will cut her hair off this weekend, she seems to have come to terms with it, but I am sure she will need plenty of support. :idea:

That's why she's got you,and you her,Plook.She's always there for you and you for her.Plus you have two daughters and Izzy who are there for both of you and visa-versa. 8)
We all should be so lucky! I'm glad today is a good day for Mrs.Plook. :D
