Extended Phase, Month 1
My first week of double-dose chemo went well. I did not experience any ill effects.
The follow-up blood results also showed that the chemo did not significantly knock down my blood cell counts.
The only thing that has changed from my regular regimen of nutritious eating and healthy living is that I’ve continued riding a bicycle regularly. It is quickly improving my endurance, stamina and energy level.
Tina and I will spend Christmas day traveling to Chicago. We will spend the next day having a last hurrah in the city. The next day will be my final visit to Rush University Medical Center before we transfer treatments for the next year to Birmingham.
