Yesterday, I went to see the cancer doc to discuss the results of a blood sample taken a couple of weeks ago. I had the results in hand prior to the visit, so I knew that the cancer was increasing at a higher than normal rate now for the second sampling event in a row. While this was very disappointing news, the doctor said that I am doing fine, and (paraphrase) to quit being such a whiney-baby. I am feeling really fine, too. All said, resumption of chemotherapy will likely start sooner rather than later. While no medical person would dare make a prediction, I could see early 2015 as a likely time to resume taking treatments.
Thanks to all for the love, prayers, care, concern and support.
