hi everybody i'm done with 2 weeks of radiation and so far i still have most taste buds knock on wood LOL I'm doing pretty good other than that MD Anderson has been real abdnmient about getting me in for fluids 3 days a week before chemo and then after i also have a nurse coming in day after chemo for 5 days of fluids along with kytreol which is a great nausea meds that works very well so hopefully the chemo won't be as bad this time i'm doing pretty good so far though about 7 i start to feel like my body is giving up on me and says hey time for rest the doctors are extremely happy with how everything is responding to treatment.So yes i'm very positive at this point.Thank you for all the thoughts and prayers

    You're working your way to the half way
    mark (which I found to be a great marker to hit!). Can't believe you still have taste buds...just goes to show that, like everyone on here says..."everybody is different".

    Sounds like they're taking VERY good care of you...being hydrated is SO important to feel half way alive during treatment.

    I remember when you first came here, and now, you're SO positive, so upbeat...an inspiration to all those on your bus!!

    checking you out
    Hi Matt,

    Good job, very seriously, enjoy what you eat, keep knocking on wood. One of the next mile stones is the half way point and you are almost there.

    Let the doctors and nurses know if anything changes, they will most likely have something to help you.

    You sound positive, stay positive, be happy, relax and keep drinking water.

    Good luck partner,

    Matt

    WTG Matt..
    Glad it's going well....

    The hydration is key, and a positive attitude.

    Nothing will put you in the hospital faster than de-hydration.

    Keep on trucking, almost on the downside of the hill.

    Best,
    John
