17 Jan 2nd round of chemo
Carol started her second round of chemo last week. She had two drugs last week, this week will be just one then a week off before the third round. At that time the oncologist will assess if another scan is needed to verify the chemo is working.
Carol is doing really well, maintaining her energy and good spirits, and a healthy appetite too! The highly debilitating effects of the first treatment seem to actually have been from the pain meds or possibly the anti-nausea meds. So the subsequent rounds have not been as difficult. The pain that initially drove Carol to the doctor in September and the ER in November is gone! And her voice is making its own recovery as well!
