When I first got into the office I received a notification that my blood test results had been posted for me to review.
Based on everything I could tell, it looked like my levels were in range with the exception of my white blood count and couple other levels.
Today was a light meeting day with a couple of meetings mid-morning and another mid-afternoon.
By the early afternoon I received an email from our neuro-oncology nursing staff that I had the green light to start chemo tonight.
My work day came to an odd end with a power surge at the office that killed the power. After the power tried switching back on a couple of times we got word that we had to evacuate due to problems on a different floor. It didn’t appear to be anything serious but they still sent the fire department as a precaution.
I guess that’s what happens when it’s in the upper 90s for the majority of the day.
For the second Monday in a row I had a dinner meeting. This week I grabbed dinner with a couple of friends, Christopher Penn, Chel Wolverton and a colleague of theirs, who also just happen to lead our team at SHIFT.
I wasn’t able to work out tonight due to my dinner meeting. Though I hate to miss workouts, my shins and my left shoulder have been a bit tweaked the last few days so it was good to give my body an extra day to heal up.
As I finish publishing this update I will be taking my anti-nausea medication followed by starting the fourth round of chemo an hour later.
Unless something happens overnight I plan on going into my office tomorrow and then working out when I come home.
Every time I tell people that I continue going into my office and working out during my rounds of chemo they usually shake their heads and ask how I am able to do it.
Well, I am fortunate that my body handles the side effects well but I am also determined that chemo isn’t going to take me down.
When this round wraps up it will put us 1/3 of the way through with chemo. Slowly, but surely, we are making our way through chemo.
