Week 6 – Nearing a Milestone

I am in my final week of irradiation and chemotherapy. My last treatment is on Halloween. Then we head to Chicago to start the next part of the journey. I still feel good. Medically, there is nothing interesting or new to report. I have some hair loss, minor fatigue, minimal weight loss and weakness in my knees, probably from deconditioning.

Change of Plans

I was a little premature announcing that we would be working with Angel Flight for travel to Chicago. Volunteer pilots flying small planes have restrictions and complexities that prevent it from being a viable option for us. Too many pieces would have to fall into place for each leg of the trip.

They did suggest another option for us – Corporate Angel Network (CAN). CAN is an organization that helps arrange transport via corporations who use larger, private jets. Atlanta to Chicago is a pretty common route for companies to make business trips so we have pretty good chances of being able to tag along from time to time. It should save a little money and help avoid exposure to a cabin full of germ-carriers. We’ll see what happens.

Thank you

Friends and family continue to reach out to me for all kinds of support. I appreciate it.

The Photo

The photo for this post is of me lying with my head on my cat, Mila. It looks like my radiation has lit up her eyes.
