HAPPY SUNDAY EVERYONE!
I had my 5th round of chemo last week. It went well. They added extra steroids because some people have a hypersensitivity reaction to the drug I was started on. I had no reaction and the side effects so far have been mild. I have been told though that the side effects will be cumulative as the treatments continue and we have to keep on top of the neuropathy that I am feeling in my hands and feet and this is going to get worse. I have had a form of this since my accident in 2001 and it did escalate some during the first rounds. I may not be able to tolerate the full 12 weeks, but I am hoping to do them all. Round 6 this Tuesday.
Last week I told you I had an ultrasound and the radiologist told me my tumor has shrunk “a bit”. Well, the Nurse Practioner told me Tuesday that the tumor has shrunk 33%!!!!! To me, that is more than a bit and a reason to celebrate!!!!!
Also, Daughter #1, the daughter that takes me to my treatments stubbed her big toe at home last week and broke it good. She is now in a boot for at least 3 weeks and trying to work light duty but is in a lot of pain. Please keep her in your prayers for a speedy recovery.
We also had a sad moment this week. My son Kris has been gone for over 5 years. After his death Son #2 drove his truck until it had a mechanical failure to large to overcome. That was almost 3 years ago and we had been trying to work with the bank the whole time to get a clear title or payoff so we could donate the truck to a non-profit group that fixes and resells vehicles but kept getting the runaround. A couple of weeks ago we did another search and were amazed that the lien had been removed from the title. After contacting the DMV we found that yes the title was really clear, we just needed to transfer the title to Mr. Dollycas’s name, pay the fee, of course, and we could get a new title and donate the truck. On Thursday, the non-profit tow truck arrived and hauled Kris’ truck away. I had tears in my eyes as I will no longer have that reminder in the driveway but realize that even after all this time the pain is still so raw.
