Treatment #3a

Today was a great day.  No issues during treatment.  Mr Smurf ended up turning from blue to green, if you know what I mean.  The 3rd bag that has given me a little issue had no problem today due to the added steroid injection.  So, today I finished about 2 hours earlier, and I never felt bad at all.  Did not see the vision blurriness like before, but felt maybe a little nausea but nothing I had to take medicine for.  So a great day.  My onc (oncologist) came to see me, and we discussed how things were going.  Because of the tumor being in the bone marrow, he mentioned his thoughts to still have me get evaluated at Vanderbilt.  I may have to have maintenance treatments to help the bone marrow, but he did not give specifics yet as he is waiting on the pet scan in May to see how I responded to chemo.  He mentioned the bone marrow transplant, but that would depend on how things go in May and how remission goes.  He doesn't have enough information yet and the trip to Vanderbilt will help, so that will be more information later.

For now, I feel GREAT, yes I would say if I did not, and there still is ZERO pain in my shoulder.  That gives me great hopes that May will be a great month!!  So thats it for now, 3 days to go, and then cruise into May.

Once again, Mr. Smurf failed      :)

Final round, just a bunch of smiles

It never hurts to ask for prayers, and while you continue to pray for me, I hope that I can ask that you pray for my friends who are dealing with any form of Cancer.  It seems several are getting news and I ask that you pray for my friends, which I leave nameless out of respect.  But you guys have helped me tremendously, I thought I would ask this small favor :)



  1. I just love that big smile! So glad the treatment is going so well with minimal side effects for you. BWs soon! :)

  2. Mr Smurf ended up turning from blue to green, if you know what I mean. What does that mean? Should I ask? lol

    I'm so glad you're doing well. Miss you dearly and I'm sad we didn't get a chance to catch up when I saw you last week. Hugs!
