Hi Everybody,

I just want to share some good news. Entering my 2nd round of chemo I found out yesterday that I gained 4 pounds! Since chemo began I have been able to eat normally. This is the first time I've gained weight for several months (over which time I lost 45 pounds). I just wanted to share some good news for a change.

Thanks all.

Congradulation, It's so important not to lose while on chemo. It helps keep your strength up!
