Friday meant a trip to the oncologist for blood work and to talk about the next round of chemotherapy.
One of my doctors came in and quickly read over the blood work numbers and said something like, “not bad”. I laughed and said she was going to have to explain these numbers to me and explain what “not bad” meant. Nancy and I got the first of what will be many tutorials on the blood work related to my chemotherapy. The numbers were “exactly where they were supposed to be”.
A few minutes later my oncologist came in and he seemed pleased with everything. I have stopped using the high powered pain meds and now use simply Tylenol to treat any pain. We decided that the last chemotherapy treatment had gone well and that we should keep to that schedule…so I get my second treatment this coming Monday.
The rest of the day was spent resting and sleeping. I picked up a book to read…made it four pages and fell asleep. Nancy came home from the store and I helped her carry in a few bags of groceries. After the groceries I was wiped out, it was all I could do to keep my eyes open as she shared about her journey to the store. For some reason today has been one of those low energy days.
