Well, tomorrow is treatment number 2 if my bloodwork comes back fine. Counts were down as expected, but "I'm still eligible for chemo," as the nurse said. Gosh, I wish I got a free lottery ticket too, or something, when I got bloodwork. I'd rather be eligible to win the lottery.
The rest of the results weren't in yet. I guess they're waiting to see how the liver enzymes are, as I had one a bit high last time and Halaven is known apparently to mess with them. I'll also be interested to see if tumor markers came down any, altho I don't know if that's likely to show up just a week after the last TMs were done.
I've been a little tired the last couple days, but nothing a well-deserved nap couldn't take care of. My son and I put up the tree last night (note to self: next year, just by a real tree not an assemble by numbers one.) Tonight, the fun part: ornaments. AFTER we go walk the dogs on this beautiful, warm day.
Our cat is loving the Christmas decorations coming out. She likes to pretend she's one herself.
The drag? Looks like the sprouts of hair coming back during the weeks since I quit Ixempra are now falling out. Hair loss is sort of a 50-50 proposition on this drug, as far as I can tell. So I guess I'll be one of the have-nots.
Jeanne, if you see this, how are your rads going? I know you said you'd be starting Halaven next month. I hope you're doing well.
Hugs to you all,
