After a month off, oral chemo starts again today for 5 days, followed by 23 days off. This will continue for 6 months. This is the same drug I was on during the radiation treatment, albeit at a much higher dose. The side effects seem to be mostly nausea which they treat prophylactically with anti-nausea meds. I didn't have any side-effects before so hopefully that continues.
After 25 years of working at the same company Dave was the victim of a corporate restructuring and thus has some unplanned time off. He was not surprised and is actually quite thankful to have some time to spend with me and the kids as well as some time to explore some hobbies and other opportunities. The timing works quite well as I now have my own personal chauffeur. :) As a result we have removed the dog walks and meal drop offs for the foreseeable future. Thank you again for all of your help.
Hope you are all well.
