CT scan results and chemo again…

Well, got the results of my CT scan today. It was good news. The cancer is where we thought it would be. It is still in the abdominal cavity and has NOT spread to any major organ. This is great news and I thank you all for the prayers on this one.

So we are back to the battle as of today. My second series of chemo treatments started today. I seem to be doing well right now. No fast side affects as of right now, but with new drugs in the mix, we will wait and see what this week holds for me, physically. It was a bit of a mental health day today. The last few weeks of surgery recovery has been nice. No doctors, no appointments, etc. It was a bit of an escape, but we need to get back at it.

I was also released to go back to work tomorrow. I have been itching to get back to work, but when I got the release today it hit me, back to the grind. I am excited to get back and feel part of a team again and get the brain working again. The time off was good, and I could get used to it. I thought about writing a book and retiring early off the proceeds. The working title was going to be “The Cancer Diet – Losing Pounds by Losing Body Organs”. Didn’t think that would fly though.

Anyway, doing well and just wanted to hit you all with a quick update.

I refuse to lose!!
