+9 It’s a Beautiful Day!

Sept. 13, 2013 Day #9

Numbers continue to rise, Leuk 2.2, up from 0.66 yesterday!! We are moving to the closer to the normal range now, which is 4.0 – 10.0. They may rise above, 10.0 then settle back down, so they still closely monitor everything. All my other stats, are still very good. So, Liver, Kidneys, etc… have been handling the stress of the Chemo.

UP to 2.2 today

On the hair loss, front I just took a shower and left more in there than on my head. I’m sure after they get my numbers up enough and I’m out of ISO they will give me another shave to even it out. I am looking rather refugee right now, but not complaining, it’ll will grow back.

Yes, I’ve lost weight, it’s pretty obvious. I do plan on gaining some of it back with healthy home cooked meals once I return. But, I’m sticking with my natural diet that I implemented when I found out I was sick. No processed foods, lots of fruit and Veggie, grass fed or organic meat (when Possible). I am even going to continue gluten free, as much as possible, it just makes me feel good. I will eat cheese and eggs again, thank goodness, I’ve really missed those. I’ve learned a lot and I don’t plan on taking this gift and not feeding my body what it needs. Yes, I will allow a cheat now in then, (I have a snicker’s bar in the fridge with my name on it waiting for me to celebrate when I get out of ISO) but for the most part I want to keep up healthy lifestyle and grow from it. Then when I add PT, I know I’ll be growing good strong muscles.
When I return their will be foods I must avoid, like soft cheeses, anything not pasteurized, sushi, undercooked anything, and the list will go on. But, I’m ready.
