No Setback

I had my usual Dr. appointment before my monthly chemotherapy today.  The plan at this point is to continue with 2 more rounds have another bone marrow biopsy when that is done and monitor my labs.  I am happy about that but still not feeling that well.  I think it may be the cumulative effects of the chemo, a virus and my bad knee is flared.  I was instructed not to take non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs while I get chemo.  My Dr. said I could take the non steroidals because my labs are good. Looking forward to the last round and hopefully some sort of recovery.

I am still swimming and doing lots with my dogs and I am really grateful for that.  I’m going to a dinner this weekend for my 35 year high school reunion.  Doing all the stuff I love and little of what I don’t.


Slight set back

Everyone who sees me says I look great.  I feel good.  All of this is wonderful except that I am not responding to my current chemo.  I still believe that I am going to be okay from this but it is a little set back.  I have finished four of what was supposed to be six rounds of chemo. Now as I understand it I have to have four more rounds.  I am still going back to work in December as I planned. I’m still enjoying my subsidized cancer vacation so I guess I shouldn’t complain.
