|I love this picture. It is an actual T cell attacking cancer|
Except for Sunday when I felt a little flu like, I have been feeling great. I have a tumor in the temple area that bulges out a little. During chemotherapy that bulge diminished a bit and became softer. After the T-cell infusion the bump enlarged a little but it is still pretty soft. My jaw seems swollen too. I have had an increase in pain as well. When we visited with the doctor yesterday she seemed quite encouraged by the swelling. As she said "I hope that means it is working".
|And now two T cell on the attack.|
I think I have mentioned before how much trouble I have had gaining weight. I had never really tracked my calories until now. It suddenly becomes apparent to me how little I had been eating. Now that I am paying attention and eating more I am doing much better. I gained 8 pounds this week. Pretty impressive. Of course JoLynne is making milk shakes with ingredients like, Ice cream, peanut butter, whole milk, muscle protein powder. 1.5 cups has over 600 calories. Yummy! To bad I can't taste it. I have been exercising about an hour a day so most of the weight gain seems to be muscle. That is nice. I was looking kind of like a POW there for a while. It's nice to get some muscle back.
Thank you again for your prayers and your faith. We miss being home and hope to be there again soon.
