I was told the chemo drug irritates the smaller veins so they send the drug thru a larger artery ------ AND STRAIGHT TO THE HEART! I can't say this sounds like a good idea but I guess that is the way they do it.
Below are pictures of flowers I received when in the hospital 12/24/15 for the kidney stent! They are very pretty, still blooming and make things a little cheerier even now, days later. The yellow and white roses are from my son. The pretty tinted carnations and bird of paradise came from a dear friend and her daughters.
Anyway...........I also ran into a neighbor at the store. Seems my other neighbor's husband had a heart attack last night. Several of his stents are blocked but evidently all is going well now because he will probably be sent home tomorrow.
