I am doing good and enjoying life without all DR's!!

I am on a monthly regimen now, it feels like I have been paroled!!

Only have to go in 2 days in the month....oh, glorious freedom.....

anyways, I wanted to say that I am feeling good....still have stomach issues, but I am getting used to it!

Thank you as always for all your prayers. I see the doctor on August 2 so all should be well. No ct scan until the end of August. I don't dread it as much since they finally figured out the correct amount of premeds!!

Hope you are enjoying these long summer days.....

My results

This is a fast post, and I am sorry, but honestly, I am exhausted. I saw my oncologist yesterday and my CT was stable. No improvement, but not any worse. So I get to stay on the current treatment plan.
2 days of doctor's appointments, 100 mile trips each day, has wore me out. But I wanted to let you know....we are so thankful.

I will talk to you all again soon.

Dr.1, Dr. 2, Dr. 3....that was my day!

Well, really not seeing all those doctors but their wonderful tests. Started the day with a fasting lab - 6 glorius tubes....then my every 2 months CT scan, followed by my every month eye exam. I am pooped!!
Great news though....my oncologist uped my pre-meds for the CT scan and I had no ill after effects. Hallelujah! I am a happy camper about that.
My eyes are doing great, even with all the meds I am on. That is a blessing. We also found out our insurance will pay for half of my new contacts...so again a blessing.
So tomorrow I will get the results of the CT scan and blood work. We are so hoping and praying for positive news...if it is, I only will have to see the oncologist ONCE a MONTH...people, that is almost like winning the lottery to me!
And go figure this....my stomach issues seem to have gotten better. We don't know what caused it or why it is going away???

I will let you know about the CT scan....appreciate your prayers.
