A New Chemo, A New Routine

Well, the new chemo combination is doing something.

I am not sure quite what yet. I was exhausted and cranky all day Saturday, moved to grumbly on Sunday, got my first Vitamin C therapy on Monday, and tired and uncomfortable all day today. The avastin and doxil should be making me a tired for 3-5 days after infusion and the Vit C should be giving me energy. The story of my life with cancer. "If it's not one thing it's another."

I am scheduled for another Vit C session tomorrow and a follow up visit with the nurse practitioner at the oncologist's office. Hopefully, they will tell me all the cramps and associated symptoms I am having would indicate the chemo is just doing it's job. That is what I think anyway and I am sticking to it.

Darling Richie found a wood stove for our main floor this past weekend and has installed it in the living room. The house is pretty toasty for the 18 degrees it is outside and I feel warm and comfy sitting here by the fire. I can't ask for more. Madeline and Charlie are home from school, the doggies are anxiously awaiting their dinner and we just need Richie to complete the picture.

Things are okay.
