Wk 7 of chemo (all good) and son coming to visit!
Friday, October 18, 2013
It's Friday morning and I'm looking forward to my son and his wife coming to visit today. They are flying in from Chicago to celebrate their second anniversary here in Tennessee. They were married at our house two years ago. I'm really looking forward to seeing them.
I had my #7 (of 12) chemo of Taxol on Wednesday and things continue to go very smoothly. I met with oncologist and she confirmed what I could feel, my tumor is shrinking. My red and white blood cell counts continue to be in the normal range which is nothing short of amazing. I attribute the good test results to all the juicing I've been doing. I also just eat clean whole foods, so everything I eat is very, very healthy. I really happy with both the tumor shrinking and the blood test results.
I did have to tell my doctor that my thoat has been hurting for several weeks. I'm getting a CT scan next week just to see if they can figure out from that what is going on. If that shows nothing, I will probably have to go see and ENT doc. I'm not worried about it, but it would be nice to know what is going on with that.
We are socked in with fog here in middle/east Tennessee this morning. It's about as dense as I've ever seen it. It's quite beautiful watching it start to lift and seeing the fall colors starting to peep out this.
Life is good!
