Happy 4th of July

Just wanted to stop in and say hi. I have been feeling good. Just the stomach issue remains. I have learned to live around it! I have a CT scan on the Tuesday after the 4th.....I hate those. This time the doctor is having me come back to the office to see what is bothering me that makes me so sick. Prayerfully, the test will go well and my results will also be good. My CA went down about 100 more points...so that is a blessing. I will let you know next week....until then have a wonderful holiday weekend and Be safe!

Some answers sorta...

Yesterday I would have been typing a different post. I mentioned that I have been having stomach issues. After talking to the doctor's office yesterday, they were going to send me to a gastronal internist to check for an ulcer. I was not happy.

Today the doctor's nurse called and told me that another patient on the same trial drug as me is experiencing the same stomach issues. They call me a trail blazer! Hallelujah. Not that we have the issues, but now they don't think it is an ulcer. I will see them next week and they will discuss what we can do to alleviate the side effects.

Repeat after me....YEAH!

I am a little frustrated....

sorry, I think I need to vent. Nothing major really. Just that when I try to do something "extra" it about takes me out. I hate that. I think about how I used to go and do.....and work a full time job. That girl is gone.
Oh don't get me wrong. I am thankful I am here at all and that I generally feel good. But I miss the days where I could do so much. It takes me so much longer to do what I used to do before I went to a full days job....
So, I am a little furstrated.....I hope you understand.

Just me touching base...

I am feeling pretty good. Getting some things done around the house that have been waiting on me....I just am still having stomach issues. My doctor is starting me on a probiotic to see if that will help. Otherwise, it is going to be a issue the whole time I am on this chemo.
Kinda keeps me near the house more, which keeps me from shopping, so, I guess it has its benefits!!
