Its better. A lot better actually. Last week was pretty rough. The chemo symptoms were lingering and didnt want to go away in the usual time. Then Kath got a sinus infection last Thursday that was really knocking her back physically and emotionally. She usually gets them this time of year with all the weather changes and the furnace coming on for the season. But of course the combo of the chemo and the sinus infection made it pretty difficult. So anti-biotics and some goop to shoot up her nose. Of course the anti-biotics are moving through her guts like a Montreal hockey riot, so a return to the cramps and the WC is once again her favorite room. But then today was better. Her normal voice again, and back to a decent amount of energy. Enough to go to Wellfit and enough to go on a short dog walk tonight in the almost English fog.
But the best news was the positive reaction from the chemo doc this morning and the blood work. I dont think we will ever see him “excited” or “happy” or use words like “cured” … but he did say it was “positive” that Kathleen was “clinically responding” to the drugs. We will put that in the win column. There was some concern her platelets would be too low, but they were good too. So all is a go for her normal treatment on Friday. Feeling better heading into Chemo day is huge for Kathleen. Of course for me too.
