Just wanted to see if people were still checking here and let everyone know what's going on. I am home, finally, and it feels good to sleep in my own bed and spend time with my dogs. I have felt a little sick the last few days, and it's probably some combination of the medicine and nerves.
I will start my chemo here in Syracuse on Friday and have set up all of the appointments. All of my follow-up tests are scheduled for December 2nd in Syracuse and then the doctors in Boston will decide the next steps. I am hoping that I don't get too sick from the treatment and I can't wait to climb back into that MRI machine so they can tell me that the tumor has shrunk, the cancer hasn't spread and it's time for surgery.
I continue to get so much support from friends and family that I just don't believe it. I am so lucky to have the people around me that I do and I know I couldn't do this without everybody who has been there for me. I am still blown away by the number of people reading and posting to this blog (keep it up!) and it has been a interesting experience for me. I don't feel like I can say this enough...to all our family, friends and co-workers, thank you so much for all of this support. Everytime I come close to getting down about this someone else reaches in to pick me back up and I can't tell you how much I appreciate it.
I will update sometime this weekend with how the 2nd round of chemo went.
