Dear Family and Friends:
Just a quick update on my progress. Cycle 4 is in the books. I did a little bit better this time, recovering from the main effects by this past Tuesday. But I still get pretty tired during the day and have to, as a result, take rest breaks throughout the day to help keep the ol’ energy level up.
I think I am holding steady in the weight department. I thought last week that i was up 4 pounds, but infortunately it was a error in the reading and I had my shoes on. But still, not losing any more weight is a good thing. No pain or fever. My hair is thinning more and more, though. There hasnt been any real change in my prognosis, but Doc says I am handling the treatments well – better than many. I will see him next week and perhaps get a better sense of whether anything has changed (or whether i should just go to Vegas and put it all down on “red”. Or maybe put it all down on “22” and see if Mssr. Rick gives me a break. :o)
I am getting individual emails from many of you about the things you are doing for yourself to make you smile. From potting, to cooking, to gaming, to reading, sewing, painting, quilting. It makes me smile to know that in the bussle of all the daily activitiy, you recharge your own batteries… and don’t get sick! Wash hands frequently, change toothbrushes a little more often, and eat more frequently and lighter. Just thought I would mention it. …
Finally, where did this come from with people starting sentences with the word “so”? What’s that all about??
Will try and post more frequently to avoid any concerns that I’ve “gone quiet”.
I hope you all are doing well. I smile and think of you often.
