The next hurdle is Tuesday of this week. Another round of immunotherapy. This will be round 3 of 4. A single treatment of immunotherapy includes infusing 2 different drugs via IV over an hour and a 1/2. So, after a good snooze, I’m released to go home. I don’t expect much after after effect since the first 2 treatments were somewhat a non-event. The last treatment is set for the end of June. Soon after that (probably first part of July), I will have another scan to determine what effect, if any, the immunotherapy and the radiation has had on the cancer and, as a result, determine what the strategy and treatment will be going forward. That is the worrisome part.
Physically, I don’t move very quickly (although some would argue that was always the case). I get winded and have to take breaks just doing simple honey-do’s around the house. But I generally feel fine. I have lost about 20 lbs. since April 11 but my weight seems to be coming back up a tad so hopefully my energy will come back with the weight. I just hope this next treatment doesn’t drag me back down.
Spiritually, as strong as ever! I have always said a sign of a Christian is that when bad things happen do you shake your fist at God or find comfort in Him. I am firmly in the latter camp and will always remain there.
Lamentations 3:24 “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in him.”
PS – that is not me in the hurdle picture.
