On Tuesday the oncologist came into the chemo room to see me – he was actually off work as he is sick. Anyway I told him that I trust him completely to save my life as 800 children are depending on his success – he smiled and said that was a ‘heavy load’ – then he gave me a hug.
He did tell me that I have another CT scan being booked. Depending upon the results – if they are as good as he feels they will be – he may give me 3 months or so off the chemo – and then hit it again full force for another 3 treatments. Apparently data has shown that this method has greater success with people who are responding well – sounds very promising to me :o}}}
One of the ladies who works at Buckerfields told me that she can see how much healthier I look than I did before I was diagnosed. She said that my eyes were always red and she knew I wasn’t well, and now my eyes are bright white – even the edges of my lids look normal. I had noticed it myself – but just thought I was getting old and my eyes were sore from wearing contacts for 45 years.
