Today is Ri’s last day of chemo…well, at least, for this hospital stay. There will be an outpatient administration on Monday, 21 July, but with the way we live by the day, that’s really too far ahead.
Anyway, the amount of pericardial fluid drained per day is still >100 ml so it looks like we’re going home with the drain. Ri has started calling it her “baby” since it’s attached to her.
As we wait for the drugs to finish, she asks me to text her surgeon if she would be allowed to shower at home with the drain still attached. In her words, she is terrified of dying more from her smell than the cancer. Oh yeah, my Hodgegirl still has her sense of humor.
