Today I have my check up after my five week vacation from the cancer center. I received a very warm welcome by both my phlebotomist and the receptionist. Both recognized that I have not been around for a while. I am hoping that 5 weeks will turn to three months very soon.
The point of this check up is to take a look at how I am doing now that I am in maintenance mode chemo and where my M-spike and other counts are at. We want an M-spike of 0.0! The last 6 tests have come back 0.2, 0.2, 0.2, 0.2, 0.2, 0.1 respectively. Not bad given I started at 3.0 and the target is a big fat ZERO!
On a side note, a heat wave is hitting Michigan! We hit 40 degrees yesterday…watch out. The climate change is starting to motivate me to take my health back by dominating running again. It’s been a challenge to find the time and motivation to exercise with kid #3 added to the mix.
By the way, I will be speaking in Frankenmuth (MI) this Saturday for those in the area! Feb 19th, 7:30-9:00AM, Zehnder’s of Frankenmuth – South entrance. Topic: Dominating Cancer through Faith, Cost $6.00 plus tip (breakfast). PLEASE RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org as seating is limited.
