Another one down. I thought the last one was fast. This one was done in record time. My appointment was for 11:30am. After sitting around the new waiting room (very nice) got in around 12:45. Was hooked up, filled up and cleaned up by 3:45. Out the door by 4pm. Not bad. Very woozy and pasty after but felt good. Got by 5:30 and was able to scarf down a small pizza.....All in a days work. Feeling pretty good for now. Very tired. I'm awake when I should be sleeping and tired when I'm up. Damn that prednisone. 
I have the next appointment booked for Dec. 9th. That would be the last one....I hope. That will mark almost one year since the surgery and the start of recovery. I have a CT scan booked for Dec. 29th. To see if all the organs are getting smaller.
Blog in 3 weeks.


And yes, that is a stash. Not dirt.
Ahhh, to be 20 again...

Precheck for #7 is done. Nothing has changed from the last time. Red cells are still good but small. I still get tired and am very lazy. Still have to take the iron pills to help with all that. I've put on 5 more pounds since the last visit. It's good but since I'm lazy I ain't working it out. Time to pack on that winter blubber to take me through til spring. But they say once the chemo is done and I stop with the steroids I will loose a bit. Ben is off to Lake Placid for a hockey tourney. I wish him luck. No one really knows how someone will be when they do chemo. If I had known I would do so well, I would have gone. Bookings were made long ago. Next time. All is go for tomorrow.
blog soon,
