All went well on Thursday. I have received my first FEC chemotherapy treatment. I'll go back for my 2nd treatment on May 6th.
I met with Dr. Green and she was very pleased with how my tumor is melting away. The original measurement of the tumor was 1.9 cm and it has shrunk over 50%. What a miracle! The chemo is doing it's job.
I also met with Julia -- we discussed side effects of this current treatment and what to look for and how to take my home meds.
I then went to Lina to have my blood drawn. That was easy breezy. I also met with my nutritionist, she gave me some good nutrition tips to help me through the rest of the treatments.
I've been feeling pretty well. I've felt a little nauseous and tired. But I have been taking my anti-nausea meds so I haven't felt as bad as I would without them.
Papa made it here Thursday afternoon. Thanks for the prayers for his safe travel. The next few days is when my white count will be the highest (usually day 4 through day 14). I will be taking it easy and keeping away from big crowds of people. I'm pretty bored with all this "taking it easy" -- so if you have any suggestions as to what I can do to keep busy please let me know.
That's what's going on with me -- I apologize for not writing in here sooner.
Thanks for praying for me and my family -- we really appreciate those prayers!!
Love and Blessings from the top of my heart,
