January 24th...Round Three
I started chemo treatments again today. My next treatment will be next Thursday, then a week off, then two more cycles. The treatment isn't as long as the others because it is given with more frequency.
I saw the Doctor yesterday. He paid a real compliment...said I didn't look sick! I've put on about 80% of the weight I originally lost. Color is good and no pain. The chemo will cause the usual side effects so I will probably of having a couple months of good days and bad days.
One thing I forgot to say. I don't feel sick. The only time I feel sick is when I'm on the chemo treatments. Funny thing/observation... it's the cure that is making me sick, not the sickness!
Keep me in your thoughts and prayers...Thanks to all...

Bill, you're an inspiration! Let's hope that this course of chemo is the final one, and that in a few years this will just be another chapter in your history. Best wishes winging your way.

Bill that sounds like good news! It sounds like your doctors and you, and the powers that be, are taking control of things.

We're certainly thinking of you, Bill. I had to have radiation about 20 years ago, and I'm sure there's been advances in medicine since then. I beat it then, you can beat it now!!

Bill, You will be in my prayers; my 42 year-old daughter (only child) recently received chemo and radiation for breast cancer.You are correct in saying that there will be good and bad days. I am encouraged that you have been able to gain weight, as that will be a plus for you. Be strong and let the Lord take care of all the rest.

Bill, My brother is a radiation oncologist. It sounds like you are the type patient he would love to be able to treat and get to know. I can't imagine going through what you are going through with such a great attitude, nor being in my brother's shoes. Too bad he put his money into a new Steinway, think of all the banjos he could have bought.
