So, it is the last blog post of the year. Tomorrow is New Years Eve and I hope all of you have a good day. Went to local oncologsist today and he likes my hemoglobin – it is at 10.2 (was 10.5 last time) and he is also worried about how I feel on Thursdays and Fridays. So, hopefully tomorrow goes well – I am a bit annoyed that I will end the year with vomiting and start the new year with vomiting. Hopefully it won’t be a sign of how the year will be. So, have a good New Years and I will talk to all of you next year (AKA Monday).

Happy Monday! So, Thursday was… difficult – four instances of vomiting. Friday, only one instance, yay? Couldn’t keep food down until 10:30 PM, though. My uncle came over around 10 PM after going to my extended family’s Christmas party – and brought the gifts we received. We celebrated Christmas on the 26th – my mom made cinnamon buns (which she only does on Christmas) and they were so good – got every present I asked for (which wasn’t a lot, only like three things). I collect radios and my mom got me an old RCA Victor radio (not functioning, or else it would have been VERY expensive) – I also got some video games I asked for (Good way to distract myself), so that is nice. The rest of the weekend went well. Called NYC oncologist today and he does *not* want me to switch to intramuscular methotrexate – as there are no studies into the efficacy of it and it works a different way from the oral methotrexate – but due to the side effects I am still having, he wants to see me on the 6th instead of the 13th. Hopefully this week is the last week of taking pills. I want anything other than pills at this point.

Hope all of you have a good week and I will talk to you on Wednesday (Thursday is New Years Eve. Booooo. Chemo ruins all of the holidays at the end of this year, doesn’t it).

Happy Wednesday! So, not much has happened in the last few days. Friday is Christmas – so since I never have good Fridays, my immediate family is delaying Christmas until Saturday – yay! I hope tomorrow goes well, because it has to. On Monday, I will report how I do – and next Wednesday, I go to the local oncologist again. I hope all of you are well and that all of you have an excellent Christmas (Or Kwanzaa) and I will talk to all of you on Monday!

Happy Monday! So, Thursday went mildly better than normal (Yay!) but Friday was the worst so far – then I was doing okay by Saturday. I would prefer being back on prednisone with the disgusting tasting pill every morning at this point – sadly enough. So, on Saturday, my dad, my brother, and Rebel went to the dog park – Rebel had fun. Sunday, Rebel got bathed. He enjoyed this weekend. So, talk to all of you on Wednesday!

Happy Wednesday! Hope everyone is well! So, today I went to the local oncologist. He had results from NYC – on November 30th, my Hemoglobin was 9.5 and on today it was 10.5 – I like improvement. Hopefully it keeps going up and then i’ll just be off the methotrexate in a few months. I hope tomorrow goes well. It must, I have had too long not feeling well to have the streak continue – so tomorrow will be great. So, I will talk to all of you on Monday and tell you how good and easy Thursday was!

Hello everyone! Happy Monday! So, Thursday turned out similar to recent Thursdays. Friday was a bit worse than normal – vomited twice, which was unpleasant. Sat around most of Saturday and on Sunday, the dog trainer came – we went to the park we went to last month, and I did *not* have a seizure this time, yay! I like days where I don’t have seizures. Since Rebel is sort of houndish, the dog trainer had us do an exercise where we had him find people who were holding treats – he didn’t really care when he had to find one of us, but when everyone but me was gone (I was just sitting because I was pretty tired, even after just walking for ten minutes) he wanted to find the people who had gone away. He found them rather quickly. Today was okay. On Wednesday, I see the local oncologist. Talk to all of you on Wednesday!

Hello everyone! Happy Wednesday! So, nothing much has happened – NYC oncologist still doesn’t have bloodwork from last Monday up, which sucks. I plan on trying what I tried last night to help with tomorrow and I think it will work – thinking positively will help. Dog trainer comes this weekend, so that should be nice. I hope all of you have a good weekend and I will talk to all of you on Monday!

Hello everyone! Happy Monday! Hopefully all of you are well. Thursday turned out how it has in previous weeks. Boo. Friday was a bit worse than normal, but Saturday was a normal Saturday, woohoo! NYC oncologist’s office has had issues with their patient portal all week, so they should have the results up tomorrow. So, hopefully all of you had a great weekend – and for those of you who celebrate Hanukkah, Happy Hanukkah!

Talk to all of you on Wednesday!

Hello everyone! It is Wednesday! Hope all of you are doing well today. On Monday, my oncologist suggested I take a lorazepam tonight, so I think I will try that tonight. Hopefully tomorrow goes well and the dog trainer comes on Sunday. I am a bit nervous about tomorrow, but I think it will go well. Talk to all of you on Monday, let’s hope I am good tomorrow and this weekend.

Happy Monday! So, had the new usual on Thursday. Had Thanksgiving on Saturday and my uncle came over, which was nice – had no issues with the food, which was very nice. Rebel enjoyed meeting my uncle. On Sunday, my brother, my dad and I took Rebel to a dog park, which he enjoyed. Today we went to my oncologist in NYC and he very much likes my numbers – he wants to see me again in a month and if my numbers continue to look good, he wants to see me every 6-8 weeks. So, talk to you on Wednesday!
