(Mostly) Good News!

Wow, has it really been a month since the last update?  Sorry about that.  Long story short, chemo has been taking a tougher toll on me and I haven't really felt like talking about it too much. Fatigue lasts longer and is more extreme and this heart arrhythmia has really been bothering me.  That's the bad news.

The great news is that I had my 2-month PET scan yesterday and the results are outstanding. The lymphoma is almost completely gone except for one little bit in a node in my neck which will probably be gone next week. That means only two more months of chemo instead of four. I am extremely thankful for this because even though this is considered a "mild" form of chemo, it still SUCKS.

It's still going to be a long two months but it's no four months. Looking forward to getting back in shape for the summer.

Hair has slowly been coming out the past couple of weeks but still hanging in there. No bald monkee pics to share yet.
