Sorry for the delayed post dear friends and thank you for your concern. Monday was a big day for me as I had the results of quite a few pending tests with my doctor. The good news is that from a lab standpoint, most everything seems to be improving. It’s slow, but improvement nonetheless. The disappointing and disheartening news is that my scans show no improvement on the size of my tumors. I guess the silver lining is there is no growth and no new growth. After I got my lab and scan results, we headed back to the chemo suites and started round three.
It was an emotional week for many reasons, mostly because I am so tired. The folks at the cancer center warned me of the “chemo cumulative effect” would occur and exhaustion would set it. Boy were they right. I’ve never been so tired in my life. I recently watched highlights from the Boston Marathon and there are moments I feel like those athletes crossing the finish line; wobbly legs, flush face and spent.
I’ve got some life stories that I’ve drafted up that I hope you find interested and inspiring. Unfortunately, it all goes on hold during chemo as my brain can’t work that hard.
Thanks for your love, prayers and good vibes. Even in my lowest moments, they keep me going.
Finally, I want to give a huge thank you to the winery staff. Last week my co-worker brought over a giant basket of goodies. It was over the top and super sweet. I’m touched that you guys would put so much of your hard earned money towards items that make me happy and comfortable. I can’t wait to properly thank you in person. Hugs and lots of love, St. Clair!
