Hello everyone! So today is Amazon’s Prime Day, or their version of Black Friday in July. It is to celebrate their 20th anniversary as a company, and they have a variety of sales for it. Some are good, some are bad, and all of the good ones are selling out within seconds. So, yesterday, I was a bit adventurous with eating and I had some Chicken Fries from Burger King for dinner, along with some McDonalds fries. Surprisingly, the fries went better than the Chicken Fries. The chicken was a bit too… flavorful for me – the typically mild, yet tasty, spices on the chicken fries made it rather unpleasant to eat, as my mouth is not used to having that much flavor, as I haven’t really had anything flavorful since May 27th, aka the day before chemo started. So, I got my last blood results from the NYC oncologist today so I can bring them to the local oncologist today. They decided to fax a bit more than that, though, so I have some records to look through, yay! More things that will get lodged in my memory.
So, back from the local oncologist and I read the records from my NYC oncologist – in his report from the first visit, he thought it was NK Cell Leukemia, and he even had ruled out a NK-T Cell Leukemia, and was thinking of other possibilities – but as we now know, it is Chronic NK Cell LGL Lymphoma with T-Cell involvement (aka )Chronic NK Cell LGL T-Cell Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma). So, the local oncologist liked my numbers – my weight is the same as it was last time I was at his office, so that is good. I asked him about my spleen, and he said he could lie to me and say it has shrunk, but truthfully, it will not shrink much in the course of two weeks – so it’ll take a little while longer for the spleen to shrink. Boo. So, I see him again on Thursday, July 30th – as I have another doctor’s appointment that day, so combining the two into one day will be efficient.
