I'm a bit more fatigued and I'm hoping that will wear off. My hair continues to thin, but no bald spots yet. Additionally, so far, no problems with the hands and feet, an issue that many have to deal with.
The chemo cycle is two weeks on, one week off. I take three pills twice a day (in addition to support drugs as well). I carry around one of those little pill boxes to make sure I always have my drugs with me and don't miss a dose.
I am off all diabetes medication for a week to see how I do using diet and exercise as a control. So far, so good. While I'm not in the "non-diabetic" range, my glucose levels remain in the well-managed area. I will be happy if they stay that way.
I will have blood taken before I start the next cycle. This may (or may not) give us an early indication of how the chemo is working. My next scans will be mid-July, unless there is a need to have them sooner.
I have a friend, Bryant, who has stopped treatment for now. He has been living with Stage IV cancer for the past two years and his body is failing him. Bryant and I met via Caringbridge/email and are now friends in "real life." (He lives in my town.) I am in grief over his situation and I'm still praying for a physical miracle here on earth for him (and me).
