    Olive oil works well for that sort of thing. Also you might want some really emollient cream (bag balm, or udder ointment, works well) for those dry hands. Doesn't smell like anything wonderful, but it helps keep some moisture in there. Hope they're healing well!!! Keep us posted!!!

    Looks like you are taking names Gary. I watched my younger brother go through the bad spots of chemo. The medical pot really does help. It should be more effective for you if taken orally. Thanks for keeping us updated.

    Went for my scheduled chemo IV drip today but seems I'm a bit anemic so it was cancelled. Instead now I go this Thursday to get my red blood cells 'beefed up' with a blood transfusion of 2 units and get back on chemo schedule for next week. 2nd time having to do this and lose a week in the chemo schedule. Now it looks like my sister, (she's an angel) has to put up with Casper and me for an extra week! :devil1:

    You bet I'm taking names! Gonna find out who's naughty and nice! Then I'm gonna clean house! :bwah:

    Had to peek in on you and how you're doing. Hope this is the main thread for this thing... I think of you regularly, dear. You're a stronger man than I have ever met. :kat: Glad to hear your spirit is up and you're pestering your sister. :ssmile: Stick with it! You have love everywhere, even if it's not always visible. :jdwink2:

    I'm having some 'ups', 'downs' & 'sideways' but I only have 3 more chemo treatments left. :devil1: Since I never have had a high red blood cell count (I'm borderline anemic) & the chemo plays havoc with the RBC's... I've had a total of 5 units of blood transfused over the months of treatment which help immensely but throws my scheduled chemo treatments off by a week each time. Right now I'm feeling pretty good and enjoyed sitting out on my sister's patio this morning enjoying a cup of coffee with Casper on my lap. :ssmile: If I didn't have my sister and Casper lookin' after me as well as the JD's wishing me luck, I would no doubt be 'up the creek without a paddle' for sure!

    I'm not going to type about the shit knives that helped to run our business down. The knives that will keep a generation fooled for a dime.

    But what in hell is your cat litter doing on the dining table? :devil1::devil1:

    Aye! Today is one of those 'up' kinda days. Only 2 more chemo treatments left then a bit of a rest until the radiation begins. You wouldn't know it from the pic but my beard started coming back in... only now it's like blond and real 'fine'! I didn't even notice it until my sister said I should shave! :bwah: I shaved for the first time since back in March of this year.

    While I can't hear what is being said, solidsoldier, I enjoyed your vid. Made me think of the Platters old tune of "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes". :ssmile:
