Yeah, we talked about options like ‘reducing strength’ of dosage or even taking a ‘break’ of a week. Bottom line is that any break we give to me we give to cancer.
I learned that white blood cells can be boosted during chemo to help in the fight. Red blood cells on the other hand ‘can’ be boosted but at risk of also benefiting the bad guy, cancer … sooo instead blood transfusion was used … and my ‘numbers’ to begin Round 2 definitely benefit me.
Does Round 2 ‘feel’ any different? … well, the smell of Megan cooking vegetarian chili from scratch won and I’m actually eating a bowl … it took over two weeks before I tried solid food during Round 1.
Also yes … I grow increasingly grateful for your prayers, kind thoughts, and caring thoughts as I share My Lung Cancer Odyssey.
"God bless us, every one"
