3 down, only 2 to go ...

This week has gone well so far, I have had 3 days of 40 MIU and with only 2 treatments left on the high-dose regiment, I am hoping my white blood cells stay high enough to make the last 2 days "maximum" days. It has been my experience that all feels well until late in the evening of day 3 of high dose cycle and then the real "funkyness" begins to settle in. Now I am obliged to simply wait and see what happens.

Go White Blood Cells Go!
On Monday, my friend Keri came with me for the first 1/2 of my Chemo treatment. It was wonderful to see her and we caught up on many things. Most of all, I got to hear all about her 1st Triathlon, which she completed just a little under a month ago. I am very happy to report that she has definately been bit by the "Triathlon" bug! She is already looking for her next race!

Go Kerry Go!

In other Triathlon news, my friend Nancy is getting ready to do her first 1/2 Ironman Distance race this weekend at EagleMan. Send her all the GOOD VIBES that you can!

Go Nancy Go!!!

Work Outs this week (thus far):

MON: Day Off - TUES: 2 miles walking - WED: 2 miles walking

I got two beautiful bouquets of flowers today. One from a friend from work (THANKS Don!) and one from my Mom & Dad. I feel very blessed to have so many people who love me and care about me.

Living STRONG and bringing in the final days of "high-dose" treatment, one day at a time.
