Well folks been some happenings around here in the last week or so. The big item is that I had my G-Tube and Port removed. More of a psychological than physical change. It just felt so damn good to have my body back to where it was before all this started, although much thinner and almost no muscle. It's almost hard to believe that over 7 months have gone by since treatment started. Solid food is coming slowly, but it is coming. Tonight I ate my first piece of chicken (roasted) and some mashed potatoes and corn. Actually got one bite of corn bread down. Lots and lots of water of course :)
My big day is Monday. It's first PET scan day. All my doc's are convinced that nothing will be found, I just wish I could be as sure as they are.
To all of you that are going through treatment or about to start, you can do this. It's a B$tch and there will be days you will ask yourself if you are going to make it, but I'm living proof, along with a whole lot of other folks hanging out here, that you can do it. I only made it because of the help and support I got here and the lesson that you just have to take it one day at a time.
I'll let you know how it goes on Tuesday when I see the doc.
