I had my 5th 8 hour chemotherapy on Tuesday, December 13, which included a bonus round 2 unit blood transfusion. The blood transfusion was a good thing - 4 hours long, but as the chemo deters the growth of new cells it provided a red blood cell boost to carry more oxygen through my system.
I now have more energy, less light headedness and shortness of breath - it was a good thing.
One more session of chemo likely the week of January 9 to be followed by a CAT scan and then a determination of what we can do for next steps. Feeling pretty good and getting into the holiday spirit.
Best wishes to all of you!
