Staring round 3/some good news

I know I’ve been slacking with the blogging, but the second round was really tough. The third week I started to feel better, but the first two, especially the first week was probably the hardest thing I’ve ever had to to do.

The good news is I made it through. I started my third and final round today.

They gave me a patch to wear (Sancuso) this time that is supposed to help with the nausea and anxiety. We will see how it goes.

I also got some really good news today. I did a CT scan last week and the nurses were nice enough to print it for me. It says the lymph node that was enlarged before has gotten smaller and there are no other abnormalities, which means the chemo is doing it’s job.

It was a huge relief to see I’m not doing all this for nothing. Hopefully I can get through this third round and just put all this stuff behind me.

I know this third round won’t be easy, but I’m taking the attitude of let’s get this over with and move on.

I’m not sure how long it will take me to feel completely normal again after this third round, but I’m looking forward to it.

Well that’s all for today, thanks for reading.

  1. Great news Dave!! You are a fighter, a survivor and I am thankful to read this blog. Now about "normal" don't know if it will exist for you. Not saying you cannot have normal~you will probably just have a new normal. I think once you gone on the journey you have ~you look at things different, life different and it is so much more precious.
