So another four day decadron (Dexamethason) cycle is behind me. This was the 3rd round of a prescribed 4 that we are using to handle the mild flare up of a few of my chronic lymphocytic leukemia symptoms. The cycle went pretty much as predicted with many of the usual side effects and as usual I didn’t get too much sleep.
I am happy to report that the treatments are working really well. And today, I feel completely reborn and back to normal. Everything came together for me last night with a gorgeous cleansing and therapeutic run after work that seemed to slam the door on this cycle and remind me, and the CLL, that I am in control. Life is good.
We’ll do one more of these cycles in two weeks and then be done. Hopefully for a long time.
