June 2, 2019 – Update

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.
