Lori and I headed down to CTCA today for my 4th treatment of Gemzar and Erbitux. We left out a little early and got down there about 40 minutes ahead of schedule, they took us back immediately to draw labs, and Lori and I were thinking “this is great. We’ll get pushed through”. Wrong. The very next appointment was 15 minutes late and it went downhill from there. We ended up about 40 minutes late getting to chemotherapy. On the plus side, now that I have proven that I do not have infusion reactions, they are able to bump up the speed of the infusion. We dropped from 4.5 hours to 3.5 hours.

Oh well. It was overall still a very pleasant day. The people there are always nice and make every visit calm and pleasant.
