Status update

Michael underwent cycle no. 8 (no. 6 post-surgery) of chemo today. That leaves four more to go. It's finally starting to feel like there's a light at the end of the tunnel. Based on side effects, his oncologist has had to adjust dosages, and this cycle he decided to completely forego one of the chemo drugs (so maybe it'll be a not-quite-so-terrible week??). If all goes according to plan and there are no further setbacks or delays, he should be doing his final cycle of chemo the week of Christmas. Which would mean having his PICC line removed just a couple days before Christmas. What a gift that would be! But I'm getting ahead of things. One day at a time. We're getting there.

so, 2/3 done! (if my math is right, who knows)

I hope he has a good week. And you do too. Fingers crossed for Christmas.
