No news on the second biopsy but it will be next week so then we’ll know the exact diagnosis. B is doing well and trying to adjust to this new normal of craziness. We had to drive to Sacramento twice and out everyday for something or other.
He started the chemo yesterday because either way this is the drug he would start with. It’s 5 days every 28 days and seems to be well tolerated. So that’s a start.
We’ve had a few lunches out coming back from Sacto since it’s easier to get a bite instead of coming home starving. Nothing fancy, a burrito at our favorite local place and the other day I had a In and Out burger and he had fries and a shake. One thing for sure is he needs to up his caloric intake. He’s already underweight( has always been) but I don’t want it to decrease anymore.
I’ve made 2 Vitamix smoothies and WOW it was amazing. I did one with a knob of ginger and there wasn’t a stringy thing left. I think it will be a great addition. Right now it’s on the counter but I try not to keep much on the counters so I’ll have to see where it’s home is. Since I’ll be using it daily the counter seems like an obvious choice but I’ll see.
While he’s at infusion today, I’m going to the gym for 30 minutes. I wasn’t feeling great yesterday so I didn’t go. that would have been my normal Thursday workout.
I get my labs next week so we’ll see how that goes too. I guess it’s really insane the two of us with a blood cancer. yes, I’ve tried to think what could it be and all I can say is it’s the luck of the draw. We’ve never been exposed to any chemicals or worked with hazardous stuff. So , we’ll never know really.
Tonight is pizza night and we’ll order out. It’s just too much to think about making too much stuff right now.
