8 more RT to go. But last week rad-Onc really demanded that I return to chemo immediately. Docs consulted & I will get just carboplatin weekly starting tomorrow. I had both in 2010 antolerate rated well so hopeful for that again. Rad said if he thought I would live just 3 months he would not put me through the whole brain radiation. That sounds good to me.
I have bloating in abdomen. Not sure what it is. Maybe combo of acities and fat. I never had abdominal fat. I'll see rad Wed and gyn-Onc a week later. I'm taking lasix which seems to be helping some. My appetite is good and my weary self walked 1.4 miles today. Now to the couch!
getting business done- cars retitled to both of us, preparing AFLAC claim long overdo, purging paper and ridiculous amount of stuff. Slowly chipping away.
worst thing is saying goodbye to loved ones. I have lots of German family that I want to video chat with soon. I get tearful just thinking about this.
i will continue sharing good bad & ugly. I am virtually pain free. Just take Aleve for low bak pain & sleep with aid of Ativan.
Blessings to all, Mary Ann
