First week of Radiation and Chemo

I’m done with my first week of chemo and I only have 3 more days of radiation. The chemo hasn’t been bad at all. I haven’t had any problems other than Friday when I got queasy and I think that was because I ate to much at lunch. As far as the radiation goes I feel great before I go in then about an hour after I get really tired. So I tend to take a nap in the afternoons and I really don’t like to take naps. I keep waiting for all of my hair to fall out but nothing yet. I’m hoping it will stay that way but you never know. I guess everyone reacts different to the radiation and chemo. The biggest side effect I’m having is from the steroids they have me on. I’m having a hard time sleeping and pushing away from the dinner table. If you put something in front of me I’ll probable eat it. I’ll probably weigh 500 pounds when I’m done with all this. I’ve also noticed my joints are starting to ache also. The doc told me that might happen though. I’ve tapered down quite a bit on the roids so hopefully that will help.

As we near the golf tournament it just amazes me how much support there is out there. People are unbelievable about giving. The people in this community are the best around and I’ll never forget. People I see on a regular basis, people I have not seen in years and people that I’ve never met have done so much and I want to thank you all.

I guess that’s about it for now so I’m gonna sign off. Here’s to hoping you all have a GREAT weekend.

Much Love, Robert
