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.
