    Chemo Treatment

  6. We are at the Karmanos Cancer Institute in Detroit for our 3rd Chemotherapy Treatment as part 3 of 4 of the Induction process. This week they are introducing Rituxin to the normal two she has been receiving. It appears Rutuxin has less side effects as the new drug they used last week so that is good. Especially since I'm on-call starting Tuesday to Tuesday so I will be concentrating more on my job. If we take last week as any indication on how busy On-Call has been, I'll be busy every night but very lucky to have such a great company to work for as they have been understanding and working with me through this tough time in my life. 7:15am In waiting in the waiting room to be called back 7:45am Took us to Room #6 where they took her weight, blood pressure and took 5 test tubes of blood (green, pink, yellow, purple) 9:00am Received the results from bloodwork they took at 7:45am. Most numbers are good (except White Blood Cell count) Potassium: 3.9 White Blood Cell (WBC): 0.4 Hemoglobin: 8.8 Platelets: 79 9:15am Got our visit from Dr. Yang. He said all was good. He wants to keep an eye on liver numbers which are high but expected after the pegaspargase Kate received last week. He also mentioned he would send a prescription for Ambien to help Kate sleep a full night since she isn't currently which they believe is the result of the steroids which she just needs to take for these last two weeks of the Induction phase. He mentioned that the Tuesday with no chemo she has to get another bone marrow biopsy to see how the treatment is progressing. He also said that the corona virus that is spreading like widfire could really cause some significant issues so be very cautious about being around anyone sick, especially with the white blood cell count so low. Kate should still be excercising/moving around but not around people mainly as much as she can, stay home and away from anyone sick. 9:35am Nurse begins the process of the pre-drugs Two Regular Tylenol via pills Benaryl via Syringe Hydrocortisone steroid via a Syringe 10:00 am Nurse is starting the Zofran IV drip (avg 30minutes) and yes, Kate is getting very sleepy. This time we got a room with a hospital bed versus a chair. I see ZZzzz's in kate's near future. next will be the 2 normal chemo drugs and the rituxan. First two take about 5min each and the Rituxan takes 4 hours minimum. 10:30am Kate received the daunorubicin via Syring (avg 5min infusion) 10:40am Kate began receiving the vincristine via IV drip (avg 5min infusion) 10:55am Kate began receiving the Rituxan via IV drip (avg 4hour infusion) - NEW 11:15am Nurse woke Kate up from a pretty deep sleep to check her vitals. You could see how unpleasant Kate was with that sleep interruption. 12:30pm Kate is awake, I got her some apples and caramel and she is watching her shows and just ordered some chicken and dumpling soup. Everything is moving right along. It doesn't even look like the Rituxan IV bag is even going down but I'm sure it is.

    being blocked by corporate for chrome so this is a work around
  8. Not everyone can afford to buy Microsoft Office and then others don't like anything with Microsoft in the name so they would like to know alternatives. Heck we are using a Mac (not Microsoft Windows). Truthfully, its difficult to beat the functionality of Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Powerpoint and Microsoft Word (proabably in that order) Some sites to check out for alternatives include: Apple Numbers, Keynote and Pages its awesome and cheap NeoOffice(cost=free) Papyrus Office Mariner Software Thinkfree Word Alternatives: AbiWord (cost=free)

    I was complaining on Twitter on how awful bluehost was for taking 48 hours to restore my sites in which time I lost my google rankings since they couldn't contact my site. Wirenine saw my issues with Bluehost and offered there services. I looked into them but they were definitly more expensive than anyone else but had a crap load more features. I decided to go with Dreamhost because of cost and after learning they aren't very technical or nice, I decided to give wirenine a shot. They transferred all my data over with some issues because of what Bluehost does with your sites but wirenine figured them out quickly and never did they show any attitude. So far, very impressed with the support staff. I will say, if you aren't familar with WHM like I'm not, then a huge learning curve if you go with the VPS option like I did. Many advanced features and configurations available to you. Way Way WAY more than any of the other VPS solutions I have tried. I do recommend wirenine and they are U.S. based.

    Just okay

    I tried to switch my VPS from Bluehost to Dreamhost since Dreamhost is NOT part of the EIG. I like the interface even though its not cPanel but its pretty easy to use. Had some issues where all 8 of my sites wouldn't let me log in (note these sites include IP.Board, Joomla and Drupal mainly) and so I contacted Dreamhost support and they insisted the issue is with the software not the server. I explained to them that these are just transfers and they work without issue on Bluehost and still they insisted its not the server. So I contacted Invision Power (makers of the IP.Board you are reading this on) and they checked it out and uploaded a stand alone script which also would not allow you to log in. So I contacted Dreamhost support again and they basically said, too bad. I still have a few domains on this site but I'm not putting anything important with Dreamhost if they have such horrible support.

    Crappy Bluehost

    So I signed up in August 2014 for a Bluehost VPS since I had so many issues with inmotionhosting that I figured Bluehost is a pretty popular and well known site but I realized later its not because they have great service but more because they are so cheap. The implemented a change on a RAID controller on the VPS I was part of (without notifying us of this change) and it killed the controller. They had to rebuild all of our data and it took 48 hours to do this. Support was useless and no remorse but why would they care. Bluehost is part of the Endurance International Group (EIG) which these are also: 2slick.com AccountSupport Arvixe LLC A Small Orange ApolloHosting Berry Information Systems L.L.C. BigRock BizLand BlueDomino Bluehost Directi Dollar2Host Domain.com DomainHost Dot5Hosting Dotster easyCGI eHost EntryHost Escalate Internet FastDomain FatCow FreeYellow [email protected] Homestead HostCentric HostClear HostGator Hostnine HostMonster hostwithmenow.com HostYourSite.com HyperMart IMOutdoors Intuit Websites iPage IPOWER/iPowerWeb JustHost LogicBoxes MojoMarketplace.

They are all connected somehow because previously I was with hostgator and everything went down but learned later that the issue was at every EIG web hosting.
