OK, the Tarceva already warns about being out in the sunlight with these zits/rashes. Today I received an additional prescription of Doxycycline to combat the rash. Of course, it says to stay out of the sunlight. Of course it does. What else? Was thinking about heading off to the Palm Desert for 2 days of golf later in May. Heck, I’ll have to dress like an Eskimo. Probably won’t affect my game too much however.
Also got a prescription for Fluocinonide. Yes, that’s how you spell it. Say that fast 5 times. Supposed to help with the head rash. Contains 35% ethyl alcohol. Definitely tingles the old follicles. Of course what does the Tarceva label say to avoid? You guessed it. Any skin products that contain alcohol. Oh, and many antibiotic drugs. My body is a walking contradiction. A contradiction with a bunch of zits. We’ll see if I get a bit more sleep tonight.
Finally got our radon test back. You’ll remember that I did a test in our house because the leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers is radon gas. So finally I got an e-mail with the results. Ready? Dum da da dum…:
Right smack in the normal range. I feel a big relief knowing that the rest of my family has not been exposed. Of course, that does not get me any closer to having a clue how I picked this bug up. I guess that is a moot point though, huh?
Someone at work passed along my story to a friend who was running in a marathon in Paris. She was running to honor others who have cancer and added my name to her shirt. How cool was that?
OK, off to count sheep. Perhaps I should count budget figures I’m currently working on. They might be much more sleep inducing.
Business as usual. Day at a time.
