Topic: Devoncat where are you??

Hi everyone,

I haven't "seen" Kris on here for a while.  Was just wondering if anyone has talked to her.

I had spoken with Kris about three weeks ago.  Her and Hans are contemplating meeting up in Barcelona at the World Congress for GI Cancers.  I told Hans today, that Kris is being missed on this board.  She is experiencing some side effects from the chemo but, I am sure that we will hear from her, real soon.  I made sure to send all our love to her.

Re: Devoncat where are you??

Sorry guys, I have been in the hospital for over a week. I got SEVERE diarreah and vomiting which caused a very slipperly slope with dehydration, malnutrition, a 103 fever and alll my body salts and nutrients were out of wack.

Home now. I am tired but fine. Still a little diarreah, but no vomiting and all my nutritional results are fine.

It happened so quickly. Thursday was my last zeloda day and I was looking forward to a wonderful week off. Suprise....not a wonderful week off. I am supposed to go back on another round on tuesday, but we are going to talk to the oncologist about waiting a couple more days.

My best friend from University of South Carolina (GO COCKS!) is coming today for 2 weeeks. She is a ped onc so she knows the score and will be looking out for me.

Thanks for your concern.
Kris

Kris,

Glad to hear you are doing a bit better, but not so happy to hear of the upset.  Tired is OK compared with all the rest.  Have a great time with your friend the next two weeks.  Take care.

Kris,

Did your oncologist think that the zeloda was what caused your problem?  Mom had very similar reaction.  Her oncologist didn't think that the zeloda was what made her so sick, but when Mom talked to the nurse who called from zeloda she thought that it probably was from the zeloda..... what to do, what to do! 

I am so sorry that you have been feeling crummy, but I am really glad to hear from you.

Please take care.  Enjoy your friends visit!!!

I think about you a lot and will be praying for you and everyone here.  Big hugs.

Amy

Sorry you were out of whack, but now have fun with your friend!
