Wanted to bring you up to speed regarding the status of my health
I did receive my initial chemo treatment on Friday August the 19 th;
Things seemed to go relatively well....however I crashed the following Monday and began having some issues related to maintaining my blood pressure and heart rate. There were several harrowing days of these episodes where my bp and heart rate were out of control.
Unfortunately this necessitated another trip to Jersey Shore Medical Center where I was readmitted through the er on the 28th of August for AFib.
I remained hospitalized until Sat the 10th of September/During my stay I received pacemaker which now managed the "downward spirial" of my heart
During this time I also received a port which will make administration on chemo easier. Unfortunately, these procedures necessitated that I "miss"my scheduled chemo treatment.
So I have been home since Sat/. Today is Monday and I really had a good day.
I do have a scheduled consult with my oncologist and will most likely resume chemo this week
Just want to add that I have. been overwhelmed with the outpouring of love and support that I have received from all of you
I realize that I am only going to be able to do this journey with all of your help
Thanks in advance....
