Happy Wednesday! I hope all of you had a great last two weeks (Sorry about the blog not posting last week!).
So, some stuff has gone on. When I went to the oncologist in NYC, he and his fellow were very concerned about the weekly side effects. The fellow asked me a lot of questions about them to get specifics, blah blah blah, that kind of stuff He came back in with the doctor and he said that he wanted to try a medication vacation to see how I do without the pills. I asked that he talk to the doctor down at UVA first to get his approval and make sure it is okay and he was fine with that.
Last week I got a call from his office saying that it was approved and I can take a vacation from the pills. So, I have not taken the pills since June 1st! Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaay! Haven’t had to vomit on Thursday or Friday for almost three weeks now! I went to the local oncologist today to get my blood drawn to see how I am doing and so far, my numbers are doing okay. I see the NYC oncologist again in July, so we’ll see what he thinks then.
So, I will talk to all of you next Wednesday! I hope all of you have a great week!
