an egg, a coot, a bald eagle… Well, I never thought that I would be a candidate for Telly Savalas look-a-like (Who loves ya baby?) I guess I need to buy some lollipops…
Last week the Chemo Hair got the razor (actually an electric shaver). I just didn’t care for that look. So, I’m wearing a lot of different hats now. We’ve got the Stetson, the Panama, the Harley Durag, the black Durag, a beanie, an oversized beanie – haven’t made my mind up which looks the least stupid.
Don’t expect any photos any time soon (as least with no head covering.)
I haven’t posted anything in a while – since there’s really nothing to report. The last two weeks have been relatively uneventful (that’s a good thing!) I have had some discomfort in my abdomen, due to injections that may be an allergic reaction. Later today I’m back into the Hospital for a week of Treatment No. 4. A meeting with the Dr on Thursday shared this little bit of info – she’s planning on increasing the intensity of the Chemo (to be able to achieve REMISSION). This is the first time this has been mentioned. I’m a bit insecure about increasing the intensity though.
I haven’t really had any major side effects to the Chemo – Yes; the hair loss and constipation…but no nausea, vomiting, etc. So, I’m not looking forward to experiencing anything else. However; I guess the means justify the end. IF, I experience anything major – we’re going back to the original dosage and I’ll risk that the result will be the same.
I won’t know the results now until it’s all over in November. I wish I had some other indication between then and now, but not to be…
The Goalpost has moved; GOAL = REMISSION!
