Ready for treatment

I had my echo cardiogram today, since the chemo I will be treated with is heart toxic, they need to make sure I have a healthy heart before I begin and I am pleased to report that I was give a clean bill of health in that regard. I have my bone marrow biopsy on Monday and then there is nothing standing in the way of treatment starting next week.

Frankly I can't wait, I know its only be two weeks since initial diagnosis but you know what they say about a watched pot.

I keep receiving messages of support and encouragement from work which always cheers me up, one specific message was particularly touching and made me feel much better. I will not reveal the source in order to protect his/her otherwise impeccable reputation as a grouch. :-)

It's the weekend, and I am looking forward to it, two days when I don't have to be stuck with a needle and when I don't have to sit by the phone waiting for the next diagnostic. Small victories.

Here's to Monday and a complete prognosis.

Yes alright, was probably the exception that proves the rule. Normal service will be resumed next week!
