Cycle 4.

Cycle 4 has begun, with predictable results. Feeling a little under the weather but nothing I am not familiar with.

A couple of unknowns have come up:

1. My SED rate. which had dropped precipitously from the 90s to the 20s (Good), has risen into the 30s. There is no rationale for the climb and we will have to wait for my next PET scan in a couple of weeks to confirm that it is nothing ominous.

2. I have developed a pain in my chest when I take a deep breath, my excellent Doctor's and Nurses are monitoring this development so I am not unduly worried, I am taking Warfarin so I am somewhat insulated from pulmonary edema which if you recall the clot in my shoulder is something that could occur.

So a few clouds in an otherwise clear sky, nothing to worry about now, lets hope they blow away.

Hoping for the best and that you'll be feeling more energetic come turkey day.

It was great seeing you the other day. I hope the ride home was uneventful!

Round 4 -- fight! Almost there, hang in there. With a bit of luck, this cycle will go as smooth as greased glass.

Hope you and the family are having a nice holiday.
