I'm half way thru .. .. ..

Thursday, July 05, 2012

.. .. .. chemo. I've been battling on hodgkins lymphoma since 1995. It keeps coming back & right now I'm being treated for the 6th time.

One good thing is that I've been responding to a low level of treatment; I'm not losing hair, nor do I look gaunt and pale:) Rituxan is easy stuff compared to what others get pumped into their veins.

Tomorrow will be my 3rd out of 4 sessions. I'm having blood work every week, too - to check up how well the ritixan is working. I may need some prednisone too ~ we'll see; hopefully not - it amps me up.

Except for treatment day, Im still working all my hours. I'm no more of a lump than I was before.

I'll keep y'all posted as to my progress.
