A very busy day on my schedule 

Wednesday is almost certainly the most hectic day of the week on my schedule, with today as no exception. 

I’m already in the dialysis chair which should end around 10am or just a bit shorter. I will take a break for a lunch or breakfast meal and then it will be on to Dallas for Chemo. Melinda is taking the day off so that she can driive me. Most of my Chemo sessions take place at the Moncrief Cancer Institute in Fort Worth, which I really like because its an easy drive from my house and it is usually not crowded and I can get in and out pretty quickly. 

The reason I will be making the longer trip Dallas today is because I will not only Chemo but I have an important meeting with my oncologist, Dr. Larry Anderson, who is based at based there at UT Southwestern, wich owns the aforementioned center in Fort Worth. I except that Dr. Anderson will go over the results of the kidney biopsy I had last week. Of course I hope that he has good news and that I can transition away from Chemo and towards Stem Cell Transplant surgery, which I will explain as I get closer to it.

  1. Good Morning Cecil, Glad you’re hanging in there. I’ve heard of Dr. Larry Anderson. He’s supposed to be top in multiple myeloma. I’m praying you get good news today and every day. God bless you. Jane…

  2. Hey, Cecil! You have been on my mind big time today! With the Espy Awards tonight you have to think about those you love who are battling cancer or who you have lost because of cancer. Keep fighting buddy! Don’t give up! Don’t ever give up!!!! I look at your day and think how could I possibly whine about my day. I pray that your day goes smoothly for you and that you and Melinda have some quality car time heading over to Dallas. As I get older, I try to be more humble and less frustrated. However, knowing the pain, treatment, and change in your lifestyle cause me to reflect and say an important prayer for your and Melinda. Remembering our time together doing Commerce Tiger games you were always so calm and steady while I was off the charts. You helped me to realize how important it was to stay in control. It was always a calming effect for me to just pass it over to you to keep us on track and focused on what was happening on the field. Please know that we are all praying for you and wishing there was something we could do for you and Melinda. Please know I am only a phone call away for a ride, a special chore or task that needs to be done. You have a wonderful Wednesday and know in your heart that we are all thinking about you, pulling for you, and praying for you. Hang in there, keep fighting, and yes do “Stay Awake Cecil”!!!! DAVE O
