I haven't felt too bad this weekend. The steroids have definitely helped my breathing. I go back to the doctor tomorrow to check on my progress. It just sort of sunk in that I only have 4 treatments left, that's 8 weeks. We are finally getting to the end of this! And without the bleomycin, I think the next 4 will be much easier.

Yesterday was quite a long day. I was able to have my 8th treatment minus the bleomycin. Thursday and Friday I had a few coughing fits and was short of breath. After treatment, they sent me to have a CT scan of my lungs. My lungs showed some inflammation which may be lung toxicity. I am taking a steroid to help with the breathing. They will probably permanently take me off of the the bleomycin. 

The good news is that I am already breathing better and I only have 4 more treatments to go!

Well, this cold won't really go away. I've had a low grade fever all week and a really bad cough. I went to the doctor today and my white counts were low so I got a shot to boost it. This should mean that I will be able to get my treatment tomorrow. I'm afraid that getting treatment on top of a cold will make for a very unpleasant weekend.

Still have a fever, this sucks!

This is the first holiday weekend that I have had off from treatment. So I decided to  make the most of it. Friday, I attended school mass where Alanna was sworn in as 4th grade class president, yesterday I repainted Alanna's room, and today we went to shark tooth island. Of course, now I'm paying for all of that fun. I have a 100.4 fever. I really hope this doesn't set my next treatment back. Keep  your fingers crossed.

I am definitely starting to feel better today. Thanks to Mom, I had a massage and a facial today! Tomorrow it's back to work.

Alanna has a sinus infection, so she's been at my Dad's. She's coming home tonight and I am so happy!
