Today, I had my fourth chemotherapy dose which was the second of my “double dose”. So far, I actually feel pretty good tonight. My hemoglobin was now up to 11.1 which is still low, but my insurance approved iron shots and I got one today. My nurse practitioner said this should help me improve building my blood. Getting blood really helped me a great deal. I feel like a vampire now. Hah!
My daughter and I were watching the Olympics tonight and I was laughing and she said it was good to see me happy. The nurse practitioner also said I was smiling today. I had a tumor marker draw today, but those results will be run tomorrow so they told me I would find out more on how I am doing next week when I see the doctor. He had to go to another office today, so I did not see him.
I have been drinking a lot of fluids today. My Odwalla super green food, apple juice, water and etc. I am staying on my same regime of vitamins and mineral and I even swam for just a bit tonight. Was pretty tired though. I am planning on getting through this round easier than last time. Besides, “My cancer is leaving my body, my cancer is leaving my body, my cancer is leaving my body”.
