Doctor's visit

This afternoon I went for blood work and then to see my cancer doctor at the hospital. It went very smoothly - only one poke for the blood work! Yeah! The doctor said they would lessen the dose of chemo drugs a little so that hopefully I won't have a problem with infection again and the pain won't be so severe. They are certainly working hard to eliminate all negative factors of the chemo. My blood levels were back up today so we can go ahead with chemo on Thursday morning at 9:30 a.m.
I am feeling very good and that is such a blessing! I have energy and I'm eating well. I am enjoying this good week and pray that this next chemo treatment won't be as harsh as the first round.
I'm loving the sunshine and can't wait to be able to sit outside on my deck!


  1. That's great news, Sandra. I'm so glad that all went well with bloodwork this morning. A pleasant happening compared to the trip to Emerge!!
    What a great team of people you have working on your behalf and for your health. That must give you a great sense of comfort and relief.
    I'd love to come and visit you this week, but I picked up a nasty cold when I was in Edmonton, so I think I'll steer clear of you (in person only!!!) until it's gone. Bummer...especially since you're feeling so well...
    I'll certainly keep in touch with phone calls and blog entries:). Blessings on the week!


  2. I will be praying all goes well tomorrow...what an inspiration you are!!!

  3. Hi Sandra,
    It is so nice you've had a good week.
    You will be in our thoughts, our prayers tomorrow.
