Well, it's been about a month and a half now since Dawn started her new chemo regiment. Her take on it ... definately a lot easier on her than her first chemo regiment, but a bit more harsh than her second chemo regiment. Her energy levels are still up, but she does fatigue quickly. And the nausea is there, but not near as brutal as her first chemo regiment.
A couple of weeks ago, Dawn gave us a scare. She had a couple of days of extreme lethargy and, on her way to and from her regular doctor's appointment, was litterally running into walls as she was walking. The doc decieded to order up an MRI and a CT scan. The MRI was to see if the cancer had spread to her brain, and the CT scan was to get an overall picture of the cancer within Dawn's body. Thankfully, the MRI showed no cancer (doc said her brain looked great!). This past Tuesday, we had the CT scan read and got some very relieving news!! The CT scan showed no disease progression!! It also showed no disease regression, but we are still counting this as a win!!
Currently, Dawn is cuddled up in a nice warm blanket. She was unplugged from her 48 hr infusion today, and has been resting. Her energy level is low, which is normal for the day she gets unplugged. She is also feeling slight nauseousness, but she says its not too bad.
The pictures that I included were taken at a Christmas party that the company I work for was throwing for the office. Dawn is definately glowing!!!! Much love to all!!
