Today we go in for another CT scan to see how Chad is handling the chemo and whether or not the cancer is responding. We'll get the results tomorrow. Weeeee!

When the surgeon first came out to tell me Chad had cancer, he told me Chad probably wouldn’t live two months. This is because of the bad shape he was in going into the hospital. Once he was out of the hospital they told us that if he started and continued with chemo, the probable timeframe was 9 months. Well, all of this was back in March. Here it is July and he is going strong. 

Last week Chad had the end of his 4th round of chemo treatments and things are going well. Each round is a month long and at this last meeting his oncologist began talking about how, in another couple of months, he will get to take a vacation from chemo because he is doing so good. We have tweaked the medicines he takes each day and have gotten better at managing his nausea and other side effects of the cancer/chemo. He has even gained back a little over 10 pounds from his lowest weight. Overall he is doing great and as you can probably tell from the photos, he is feeling much better than he was.

I’ll try to get some more updates posted when we know more.

Chemo Day went well yesterday and Chad seems to be handling it well. He's only having issues with fatigue and light-headedness. 

Tomorrow we go to get the pump removed. It'll be a good day.

I had sooooo much fun at the Gathering of the Guilds this weekend. Next weekend is the Craftsy Wonderland.

Oh summer, how I love thee.

I got the most amazing knitting book over the weekend. I may finally be brave enough to knit a sweater as opposed to just lace.
