Chemo Round 1: Day 4

Just a few updates. We met with the Radiologist yesterday to develop a game plan. It looks like there is brand new research out on the treatment of Hodgkins patients and I might be benefiting from it. Instead of three weeks of radiology, I might only have to do two. Radiology will start one month after Chemo ends, so we are anticipating the end of the year.

After meeting with the Radiologist, we headed back to the Oncologist to disconnect the pump. My boss had told me that a nurse in the treatment room was one of the nicest people she has encountered and I got to meet her yesterday. She was very kind. I have to actually say, everyone at that office has been unbelievably kind and caring.

I have not felt well for the past two days. I have been taking the anti-nausea medication but do not know if this dose is good for me.  One thing I can say about that medicine for sure; I have become reacquainted with my bed today. I do not believe I have been awake for more than 2 hours today.

  1. Hang in there. You have a lot of people praying for you. I am so happy to hear that you have such a great group of people supporting and helping you.

    You are such a strong person. Your posts/story inspires me everytime I read your blog.

    Hopefully you feel well enough this weekend to celebrate Wayne's b-day a little.

    Again, let me know if there is anything I can do (besides the prayers).
