On Tuesday the 11th I had a blood sample taken. Yesterday (Wed.), prior to chemo #3, I answered all of Dr. Shipp’s questions before she reviewed my blood results with me. She said, “You’re STILL the poster child of dose dense M-VAC chemo.” WooHoo! It was a subtle change, but I noticed it: she promoted me from Poster Boy to Poster Child!
All of my important numbers are where they need to be. Dr. Shipp explained that if they were not, they would have to supplement with blood transfusions. I’m on track for the 4th and final dose on the 26th.
I still have about 50% of my hair – enough so that I look my age. Based on what happened last time, I should lose a bunch more this coming week. Eileen and I are taking weekly photos of the “stages” to share once the process is complete.
Photo: If Dr. Shipp is serious, I thought I’d find a good childhood photo of me so that she can get busy on that poster. I always felt bad having training wheels, but seeing the photo, the bike looks way too big for me.
