I'm doing fairly well. I've been pretty lucky after my first chemo treatment last Wednesday (Read post below, if you like). I didn't have huge nausea problems and the Neulasta headache that I worried about never really happened. I have luckily been able to walk a little each day (a daily goal), but tummy troubles have shortened my regular walks. Other symptoms at the moment are swollen neck glands, general achiness and extremely tired. As my white cells (immune) drop off as the aftereffect of the chemo, my immune system will continue to slide down. Since my first infusion was last Wednesday, this Wednesday will probably be my lowest day, and then I'll start building back up again getting ready for the second infusion. My plan for that is to just stay home and take it kind of easy. The good part of that is that all of you are in such great hands (or if you are CORE staff, you're providing those great hands). I know you'll all do well and will be well taken care of.
For my PLT students, you couldn't be under a better wing, whichever teacher you now have. Communicate if you need anything or are unsure of anything. Biology and Earth Science students, please don't hesitate to ask Mrs. K anything that you're unsure of. She really wants to provide you with a great end of semester, which is coming up fast. Marine Bio kids, please keep Mr. Pierson on track. I have a feeling you'll all have way too much fun. I would really love to Skype in or something like that to any of my classes. I know I'm missing out on the fun.
One last thing, I put a link to the right sidebar with additional info on Follicular Lymphoma, if you want to read more.
Smiles and miss you all!
