Update on busy Wednesday 

My Wednesday started at 5am and concluded at about 5pm, which is a load for a cancer patient. 

I have bad news and good news (yes, I hate that phrase too). My oncologist did not have any news for me about the kidney biopsy from last week. He simply has not heard any news as yet, which was a real bummer. 

The good news, came as big surprise to Melinda and I, was Doctor Anderson canceled the Chemo treatment for the day and sent us home. That was a first for me, and since as last weeks bwas a scheduled Chemo as time off means that for the first time I could enjoy back to back weeks without Chemo. I’ll take it! Doctor Anderson said that my overall numbers continue to show inprovment, but that I looked tired. Amen to that. He also mentioned that based on my numbers it’s ok to take some time off because, “we’ve got Melanoma on the run”. That felt good to hear. 

He also scheduled a blood transfusion for today, which I have been wanting to some time because my hemoglobin level is very low and is leading to Amemia and dizziness when I stand which is a leading reason for a couple of recent falls I’ve had. The last transfusion I had was a couple of months ago and was a big help.
