280 dollars...


5 temodor pills , 100 mg each. Copay for it - 280 dollars. Temodor is one of REginas chemo drugs. She has to take one 100 mg pill, then 3-20 mg pills. ANd past four days she has been on oral etoposide. TOmorrow we add those 4 temodor pills.. Not fun, not fun. I put all chemo drugs on table, lots of snacks next to it and I let her choose when she finishes them. Usually it takes about 30 minutes to take all those pills orally. I do not want her to throw upl, so that is why I am not forcing her to take it all at once.
BTW, without insurance this would have been about 800 dollars. So guys, eat your vegetables and fruits , and STAY AWAY FROM CANCER!!! IT is an order!!! BTW, Regina is doing pretty good :)


I have to share one funny story. My 6 1/2 year old boy Gabriel is very curious boy. He wants to know everything and asks gazillion questions per day.
This time he chose his topic- Babies and how that happens.

Gabriel knows that boy's have penises and girls have vagina's. He does know that it takes 2 people to make babies... BUT until last week he thought that all it takes is that "special"hug.. and BOOM, there is baby in your tummy. HE has been acting very confused and asking questions about How, how, how... he does not get it.lol

So I told him, I went straight to business. I told him. That special hug means, that boy has to put his penis into girls vagina. BUT you can not do it with your sister, or with your mommy. It is very wrong and not good thing to do.
Gabriel looks at me and tells me- that's it??? I am still not getting it. What does penis have in it??

HOnestly, at that moment I wanted to burst out laughing like I never laughed before. BUT I managed to keep my " streight purple face".. I really did not want to get into "sperm business yet", and I told gabriel.....
LISTEN Gabriel, your penis has magic dust in it, and that's it........ ( I know , stupid)....

I was not prepared what happened next. My handsome, smart, talented six year old pulled his pants down and started shaking his privates and screaming out loud.. I GOT magic baby dust on my penis. I will make lots of babies .... Mommy, do you want some baby dust.

At that moment, I just could not take it any longer I started laughing like I never laughed before. And so was gabriel. He pulled his pants back up and told me- Mommy, you are my "gilfriend", when I get older I will merry you and then we can use my baby dust.

I just hugged him and told him. Dear Gabriel, I love you very much. But one day you understand Why mommies and sons do not get married. You will find yourself one very beautiful girl and get married to that girl and then you can spread your baby dust. :)

BTW- We will be going to Ronald McDonald house on Saturday. Also, on saturday Regina has first part of her Psychological testing. It will be 3 hours long , but she needs it, and most importantly it is free of charge. This will let us know where Regina is mentally . How smart she is, how much she knows, etc.:) Keep your fingers crossed that tests show only good results. :)
