Topic: Half Way There!!!
Hi everyone. Sorry for such a long time between posts, funny how you get busy sometimes and forget to do some things... A little catching up:
Finished Chemo on the 13th of April and they wanted to wait 3-4 weeks to start radiation. Did the study on Friday the 27th of April (side note, where I was supposed to go the CT machine took a crap, had to go to another location but got it done!) so they could map everything and did my mold, started the radiation on Monday the 7th. Today was my 13th treatment of 25, so I'm officially 54% done!
I am taking 1650 MG of Xeloda 2x per day and on day 1 and 2 I didn't take any anti-nausea meds, didn't feel that great... Afternoon of Tuesday day 2 I took Zofran, it worked, and now I take a Zofran every morning with my Xeloda. I don't take it at night and it hasn't bothered me, but if it does, i have no hesitation to taking it. Since the Zofran, haven't had an issue since.
I have been a bit more tired of late, naps here and there. Other than the tiredness, no nausea, vomiting, or anything else. I've kept up with the gym too but not sure how much of it I will be able to do over the next 2 weeks...
Headed to NY on 7/3 for my father-in-law's granddaughter's wedding on the 4th in the Hamptons (the Hampton's will be in the Hamptons... heheheh), wife's bday is the 6th, we'll be in NYC and have 4 tickets to Wicked at the Gershwin theater... Might as well make a vacation out of it, right??? Best wishes to everyone out there fighting the fight!

Attitude is everything, you have to keep it positive! And take it one day at a time, it's all anyone can do with this disease...
