We go back the waiting room. Olivia starts eating candy. Grandma reminds her to put her garbage in the garbage can. She run over to the old white push-pedal can. Pure joy crosses Olivia's face using the foot pedal. She starts looking around for more trash to throw.
My name is called and we are ushered to a room where my weight and vitals are taken and my pain meds reviewed. There is a knock on the door, then Dr Laudi and Deb walk in. Dr. Laudi greets Olivia, but she holds her cup up to her eyes, trying to hide behind it. We all laugh.
Weight: Same as last appt, but down 25 pounds from May and down 60 pounds in 2 years
Appetite: I say good, but Mark and my Mom disagree.
Dr Laudi is a little concerned about the diarrhea and nausea. He lists other meds we could use for nausea, Marinol, Ativan, Haldol, a scopolamine patch? I laugh at the Haldol. I like the Zofran and will stick with that.
The plan is to start chemo on Monday, November 18.
