You win some you lose some

So today I got a curve balls that life throws at you. I went in for th beginning of my next round of chemo, but instead got a curve.

So I woke up at 6 o'clock and started to drink so that my urine would pass the urine analysis.

Got to the hospital and my pee was looking good for everything to move forward. So at 8:30 I went to have a CT scan. It was the first one since the completion of radiation so my mother and I were excited to see how well radiation had destroyed the cancer inside my lungs.

After the scan I went back to the clinic and got good and bad news. The good news is the the tumors have shrunk quite significantly and may be small enough to be removed by an operation.

The not so good news was that my blood count was not good enough to start the next round of chemo. So I guess you can't win them all.

So round 6 will be put off until next Monday but it was good to hear that the radiation did a very good job and that everything is looking very good.

so all I can say is that you win some and lose some. THAT IS LIFE! Just take the good stuff and keep going.

Until next week....

Shots: 57

Pills: 156

Hey Dave-

We always like the good news. I am so glad you are sharing with all of us. Where is Tri-City Hospital? Why did you go there rather than Childrens'? Have you seen David After Dentist on yahoo. It is worth a few laughs.

Will this push back all your Chemo rounds or will they catch up?

Maybe this has already been answered, but if they remove the tumors, will you still continue with chemo?
