Back with a vengeance

Well it took about a week or so to really feel better. I'm almost there now. Between the bronchitis and another infection I've been pretty blah the past week. Nausea also has set in a bit more than I have been experiencing, adding to my desire to just sleep and rest when possible.

But most of those two obstacles are gone and I'm back with a vengeance now. My blood numbers are holding their own (I'll find out for sure this afternoon at Dr. Z's) and my weight actually went up from last week.

On a good note, just two more radiation treatments and I'm through with that phase of my treatment. A few weeks to go for chemo. I've been scheduled for a PET scan on Dec. 12 and today I've been asked to find out from Dr. Z who my surgeon will be.

This all means things are moving forward, thankfully. And now that I'm gaining weight again after a couple of weeks of reducing, I guess I'm back on the path I was before the bronchitis struck.

Meanwhile, I feel as if I helped Dr. Z out medically last week when I stopped by on Friday to discuss my condition and noted that there was a report on CNN and elsewhere that iPods and iPhones could be hazardous to your health. Seems the ear buds and some internal components could kill you -- or at least poison you -- if you ingest them. So don't chew on the wires to your ear buds or nibble on internal parts. Apple, meantime, was fined harshly for these issues.

I'll update after my doctor's appointment this afternoon with Dr. Z.

Oh, Keith, you have no idea how great it is to hear that you are doing better and that you're blogging again :).

Keep fighting the good fight, brother.

As for the iPod iPhones...I knew they were an evil ploy by Apple. Down with them, I say. I like my pc better too :D.

Hi missy, glad to bring you a smile. You've brought me so many! Thanks. I will continue the fight and I will win. You'll see.
