My appointment with my oncologist was terrific on Tuesday! I was very excited upon leaving LCI Pineville.
I learned some very encouraging things. I have only 2 more of the “bad” treatments. This Thursday and then Thursday, October 8. Everyone at my oncologist’s office is thrilled with the way that I’m handling the treatments. My side effects have really been pretty minimal. I’ve lost my hair but I’m still looking and acting energetic and positive. My vitals are great. I didn’t hear from them this afternoon, so my blood count must be fine too. Ready to face #3.
The really great news is that I have permission to try to schedule my Thanksgiving week treatment one day early. That way we could drive to Tampa for Thanksgiving. Both girls will be at home (which is unusual) and they want us to join them this year.
By moving this up one day(instead of skipping the week as I could also choose to do,) I wouldn’t have to extend treatments to or past Christmas.
My oncologist notes that side effects with the second drug are minimal and I should be fine to travel. My immune system should be stronger so I can relax with the kids and food. I almost feel released!
The end of the “bad” ones is only 2 weeks and 2 days away.
