As promised, a report from Friday. It was a bit rougher than usual; I got ill during my treatment, and apparently I looked “horrible” most of the evening. However, on the upside, they put me on a new anti-nausea drug, and although my sense of taste is still diminished, I feel far better than I have many weekends. Also, the weekend brought some great news: for the first time in my college career, I managed to make the Dean’s List! Yes, I was surprised as well.
As I mentioned before, things have become somewhat routine with my chemotherapy, but I’ll try to keep everyone updated. Anyways, best wishes to everyone tomorrow, and I hope that everyone has a great Christmas (or had an excellent Hannukah).

Just a quick note:
I’m in Woodstock right now (where I’m planning on being through the 17th of Janurary, outside of chemo on the 22nd and the 5th), so any correspondence is best sent to my parents address.
Again, I’ll report back on Friday.

I apologize for being remiss in my updates; however, I’ve been in the midst of finals and wrapping up classes. By some odd twist of fate, it appears that this may end up being my best semester of grades ever.
However, I do have good news. My doctor cut back the one drug that was responsible for the tingling in my extremities, and it seems to have worked. Also, my nuetropenia seems to have subsided; while my counts are still getting low before treatment, they aren’t QUITE as low, giving me a little more freedom. However, I still have to be careful.
I’ll try to report back in after Friday, my next treatment. If nothing else, I’ll be happy to report that I’m past the half-way point (hopefully).
