My condolences to you and your family.
I'm very sorry to hear the news. If there is anythign i can do your you or your wife let me know.
BFCM- I hope you're holding up ok.. you're in my thoughts.
I had some blood work done this morning, and a follow up PET scan this afternoon. I won't know the results of the scan 'til Monday and the blood work showed that my white count (WBC) is almost non-existant, which means I get to sit around the house by myself this weekend and give my self shots of Neupogen tomorrow and Sunday!
Sorry to hear about the WBC. Stay inside - there's too many germs out there! I don't remember much about NY (only one visit); but out here it's turning into allergy season and sinus infections are running rampant and amok about our house.
Condolences reference your Mom Tyler. My mother has smoked since she was, well, an embryo I think. Worries me a lot. Im sorry to hear that.
Last Friday, in addition to blood work, I also had another PET (Positron Emission Tomography) scan.
My white count was (and still is) in the dirt.....for this I inject myself daily with Neupogen, to stimulate WBC production, and have more blood work scheduled for Thursday AM.
The "preliminary" report on the PET scan shows "significant" reduction of the mass in my abdomen.........what exactly this means, I do not know, other than it looks like I will only get 4 more rounds of MAb's and chemo.
Unfortunately, the way things go with cancer treatments, I feel worse after each successive round....................... but hopefully, the end of October will be the last of treatments for now.
