CT Scans

If I were sticking strictly to schedule, I'd have been readmitted to the hospital on Wednesday, the 7th, for my 3rd cycle of treatment, but since, my white blood cell count was low and my oncologist wanted another round of CT scans, I'm now scheduled to go in on Tuesday, the 13th.

The CT scans were done on the 8th and brought good news: the affected lymph node had grown to 4 cm by 3 cm and is now, thanks to treatment, down to about 2 cm by 1 cm—almost normal—and no longer producing detectable amounts of the telltale chemical marker. Yay!

Overall, besides tiring quickly and easily and being super susceptible to infection, I'm feeling pretty good. Hope that holds for a week from now!
