This should be the shortest update yet. I am just updating you on my treatment from last thursday (Oct 3rd)
For those that do not want to read more: I feel great after the last treatment.
The rest of the story: I came up to Salt City on Wednesday Oct 2. The drive is starting to get to me even though the Leafs are starting to change. This makes the drive a little bit nicer. It is still 3:30 hours of me thinking to myself. Never a good idea when you are not sure how long you are going to live. I did not have anyone come up with me this time. My Mom flew in on Thursday Morning.
We had breakfast at the Park Restaurant before heading up to treatment. (that is my product placement for this update)
The Doctor was again very excited about how things have been going for Hodgkin's patients. He was also excited about the CT scan results.
My schedule for the future will be pretty set at every other thursday in SLC with CT tests every couple of times. This also runs into Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. Not to excited about that.
There was a little discussion on how fast we would need to move to the BMT at the end of treatment. This is something that has been brought up a lot lately. In my head and with friends. The PD1 might be too successful and this has really forced me to think about my next step.
The short answer is I do not know what I am really going to do.
I have not really thought about it a lot lately. But it is something I need to think about. I will save that for the next update….two weeks away.
And Yes I am still think of doing it...and still thinking of not doing it.
In an effort to keep this short. 5 days after the drug I feel great.
Had a fancy dinner with my mom last night and we went very ritzy and stayed at Grand America hotel in SLC. (Hey if the drug company is paying for it why not?)
Otherwise my week was rather good. Lots of fun, including Moab Pride events, sea kayaking the river, last weekend up big cottonwood canyon with friends, and finishing the SGRE brochure.
Very much feel like my rather amazing life is turning towards the even better, yeah I am going to say it. “I am winning!” Much Love!
