Re: [Serious] Please cross your fingers for a good outcome?
Thanks, Jrb2. =============
Update: Will have 6th (final) chemo next Wednesday, 5/22, and have 9 (of 30) radiation treatments remaining, including tomorrow. My understanding is that it will take a couple of months until scans will show how things went.
Heartburn and general chest discomfort are present but certainly not to an extent worth complaining about thanks to big doses of Prilosec and Mylanta. I'm using two different inhalers (Albuterol and Advair) to avoid losing lung function from radiation if possible.
All in all, things have gone far better than I dared hope.
I just love how you take responsibility for me. Nobody has done that since my little mother was alive.
No worries, Dear. I don't tend to overwork me these days and, truthfully, I really should be working a little harder, especially now. Russie would be on my case if he could see how lazy I have become. And, there was a little winkie there, just in case it wasn't obvious enough.
And you ARE fighting hard. Just showing up for the treatments is worthy of a "MY HEROINE" medal. As somebody else said, you (your attitude and courage) is truly inspirational. -- Join Team Helix * I am praying for these friends .
