Today’s checkup went well. Tomorrow I start the next cycle of Xeloda at a reduced dose. My doctor said we will start with one week on, one week off and increase to two weeks only if necessary. I had bloodwork done today which should be in by Friday. I had an extra week off the Xeloda so we will see if that effected the tumor marker. Also no scans this month. I was glad to hear this because it will be nice to enjoy the holidays without that extra stress.
I am on the train today, near Baltimore at the moment, on my way to Virginia for a work related computer training. I rarely travel alone these days so it’s a bit strange. I also packed a big bag of medications just in case. Hoping not to need most of them.
