I am nearing the end of my fifth dose of chemo. Only one more tomorrow morning for this course! Then I wait. I don't know yet what my schedule will be after that. I am sure I will find out tomorrow morning. I suspect I will be coming in on a daily basis for lab work and a quick check by the doctors every day. The chemo is mildly upsetting to my stomach, and, of course, very tiring. I am doing OK, though!

On the medical front, nothing new! All my lab numbers are going up??? I guess this chemo stuff really is agreeing with me this time! Actually, maybe there is a morning/evening thing. Lets hypothesize that my lab numbers will be lower in the morning because of tonight's chemo. Maybe having a day off between allows some recovery. I guess we shall see!!
