Had a bad day today...disagreement with my partner, F., got crappy news at work, etc, and raging pms on top of it all, but we did get good news at his oncologist appt to get scan results. The second two rounds of carbo/etoposide seem to have shrunk the tumors in his lung and adrenal glands (the first two rounds didn't show results. Aside from a miracle cure, this was the best news we could get. So the oncologist wants to continue with two more rounds (6 in all) to see if the tumors will keep shrinking.
I should feel great, but instead I feel down...I guess it's because F. was having a bad day today and is just discouraged and frustrated with it all. They want him to start chemo tomorrow but he is stalling, annoyed that it is last minute, and probably won't go until next week. I won't fight him on it. I'm just relieved to have dodged the bad news bullet and have bought more time. Hopefully by tomorrow I'll be feeling as happy as I should be. Maybe I should take April's lead and go get a mani/pedi.
