For those of you keeping score at home…round 3 of chemo concluded today without any issues. My blood counts were good and I continue to both respond and tolerate treatment pretty well. I haven’t slept yet since yesterday due to the beauty and curse of my favorite (said nobody ever) steroid decadron but sleeping is overrated at times. I’ll get caught up in the next couple of days. I go in for my Neulasta (white cell) booster shot tomorrow but otherwise, that’s a wrap for this month. I hope. Assuming no unforeseen or unmanageable side effects.
I know I can expect a few unpredictable days over the next couple of weeks but that’s OK. It’s par for the course and part of the plan. If the effects of this round are anything like those of the first two rounds (which isn’t a guarantee due to the cumulative effects of the drugs) I should be able to race the HEADstrong 5K this weekend in Ridley Park PA. If you are looking for a great little race benefiting a great cause, and run by one of the most amazing organizations on the planet, come join us. Details HERE.
