God go with you, my friend.  Be brave, and keep your spirits up.  You'll come through the whole process better if you keep the good attitude you've already displayed.  Our prayers continue.
God Bless

Hey, don't knock the port. That port will save you from hundreds of guys like me having to stab you over and over again to take blood tests.

Well, I know that I will NOT be able to work the week I get chemotherapy. This creates a lot of problems (other than missing a week of paycheck).

Still, it wasn't as bad as a kidney stone...

I don't know if you've already been told this, but when my mother and sister-in-law had chemo, they usually felt decent for a couple of days and then things hit them. I think this is usually a pretty standard reaction. I hope you get through things okay.

Okay, so I can't work the second week after chemo, either.

I decided to apply for disability since I can't work one week out of three. I'll hear something in 30-60 days.

My hair is coming out, and my finger and toe nails hurt (doctor says I'll probably lose them). My skin is all dried out and feels tight and rough. I could hope that it will split open and a superior being will emerge chrysalis-like from within, but I would probably look more like The Fly from the movie with Jeff Goldblum.

On the good side, I've lost five pounds...

Hey, you never know, you might wake up one day and find yourself like this:
http://imageserver.moviepilot.com/strange_tales_178-01-is-adam-warlock-on-his-way-to-the-marvel-cinematic-universe.jpeg?width=900&height=1383

I'm sorry my friend.  Chemo can be really rough.  I hope that you can adjust to it and, most importantly, that it will do its job well.  Just think, however bad it may make you feel, that invader in your body is feeling worse.  Our prayers continue.
God Bless

Still losing hair, finger and toenails don't hurt as much, but meat tastes... indescribable. I've worked in paper mills that didn't smell as bad as some stuff tastes.

Coffee and chocolate ice cream are fine, though...

Oh, man, if tastes had to get all goofy, that's the way to go in my mind.  Coffee and chocolate are pretty important to my continuing mental health!

Strangely enough, bacon tastes fine. I say it's strange, because ham and sausage are in the indescribably bad category.

The doctor says he's taking me off chemo for awhile. I got the first hormone treatment last time, and he wants to see how it works.

For those of you who understand, my PSA is 1. For those of you who don't, it's a good thing.
