Today’s picture has nothing to do with the post, other than she does make us smile.
A lot. All the time.
AND I cannot post pictures of the cancer giggles. This will become self-explanatory.
1. Trial Drug Study A7471009 of PF-00299804 has been causing great skin difficulties (otherwise know as side effects) for the Brawny Man. The face rash was readily taken care of by oral antibiotics. However, he developed a horrid rash on his legs, and by horrid, I mean his legs looked like they had been ravaged by insect bites, and by ravaged I mean the
Eighth Plaque of Egypt
Exodus 10:4 Else, if thou refuse to let my people go, behold, tomorrow will I bring the locusts onto thy legs:
10:5 And they shall cover your legs, that one cannot be able to see your legs: and they shall eat the residue of that which is escaped, which remaineth unto you from the hail, and shall eat every hair which groweth for you out of your legs.
Okay, that may be a paraphrased quote.
The treatment for this is to apply a topical steroid gel and a topical antibiotic cream twice a day. Due to the gel factor, it requires a bit of time to dry. So imagine my surprise the first morning The Mister applied this to his legs and is waiting for it to dry and I come downstairs to find him casually sitting on the couch eating his cereal
with his pants around his ankles!
But really funny. Gives me the giggles every time.
2. During his eight months of IV chemo, my Brawny Man did not lose a hair on his head. However, he did lose all the hair on his arms and legs. Gotta tell ya, Bad Alice and I were pretty envious of his silky smooth legs (this was before the horrid rash).
Now the hair is returning with gusto, and by gusto I mean

Without the soap.
