Treatment Nurses

One of the most pleasant things about treatment were the nurses. For the most part, they were caring and compassionate. Need a warm blanket or a cup of juice? They they are. It seems the dacarbazine in the ABVD chemo was always the worst - it burns the vein if it goes in too fast so the nurse & I would adjust it to go in the rate the vein could take it which could take a long time.

I hear the new therapies like Bexxar are alot easier to tolerate, maybe just some flu-like symptoms. That would have been better than the ravages of ABVD.

Let's give special thanks to the therapy nurses this holiday season. For all the support we receive, maybe we can give a little back.
