New picc line and Methotrexate

Paul had his new picc line put in this morning under general anaesthesia. He doesn't seem to dislike the process as much as you'd think as he always loves counting down until vanishing.

Chemo started straight away with a 4h high dose of Methotrexate.

Paul will be discharged on Saturday afternoon as it takes three days to get the Methotrexate out of the body.

He had a long chat with his bed neighbor Jon (in the picture above). Jon had a tumour in the femur, and is two weeks ahead of him in the same seven-month protocol.

They both (along with an 8-year old newcomer with another tumour from the infinitely varied menu of cancers) went to the day school and did some work (?) on the computer. They ended up in the play room.

Clara and Corinne arrived tonight from Hamburg.

Corinne replaced mum for the night in hospital.

  1. Hi Mireille,

    I have not spoken to you for quite long. Hope you are fine.

    I follow the News of Paul day by day.

    Thanks go to you and to Philipe for the continual update. It is helpful and I feel like being with you almost all the time.

    I would like to invite Paul to a restaurant he likes when he can make it, provided he would like this. I miss him and would love to see him somewhere outside the hospital or the house. Any Saturday in the afternoon will be fine from May onward. Let me know if there is any chance.

    My love
