I sit here, letting fluids and medications flow through the port in my chest. A vitamin B-12 shot in my upper arm was a new experience…I think. Too many stabs and jabs to remember. I have been weak and tired most of this week; uninterested in blogging. I feel better today. But I am very, very tired of the restrictions imposed on me by chemotherapy.

I have a PET scan scheduled for a week or two hence. The results of that test should tell whether the treatments are working as planned.

The vision in my left eye has degraded of late, so I must make an appointment to see my eye doctor. Degradation is a lousy experience.

Enough one-finger typing.

    I’m relieved to see a blog from here today even though it’s brief. Thank you for letting your many friends know how you are doing. Wishing you a comfortable day.

    John I regularly read your blogs and I have been remiss at taking just a few moments to let you know that I think of your often. Please be kind to yourself and take each day as it comes.

    I’m sorry that you’re feeling weary and unwell. Doing the more challenging chemo regimens can be very rough going. It’s a cumulative thing — the effects of each treatment sort of build up rather than being like a roller coaster of up and down between treatments. You’ll probably find that you’re weary and need to rest a lot. I have friends who did really challenging chemo for breast cancer and spent a lot of time mainly lying around or sleeping in a recliner chair for weeks at a time. Be easy on yourself. Take care.

    John, I’m thinking of you as you undergo your treatment today. I’ve missed your blog lately. I hope all of those little units they’re adding are going to the right places and doing their job perfectly! Take care and know that others are rooting for you!

I wish you would tell me what you think about this post...
