I didn’t realize it had been so long since my last update! So much has happened and I have definitely seen God working everything out and I’m so very grateful. I went to my old doctor for my first immune therapy treatment as I felt more comfortable doing it there. However, my doctor had already moved on and my PA was gone as well, so I ended up seeing the PA that I don’t have a lot of trust in. I also ended up seeing the tech that has made me cry more than once and was shocked to see her at the clinic again. It confirmed in my mind that it truly was time to move on.
I asked around a lot here and found out that there was a doctor that was well thought of and made an appointment with him. My son went with me and we both liked him a lot. Once thing I really liked was he took the time to get to know me. He asked about my hobbies and, when I told him that I crocheted and did cross stitch, he immediately became concerned about the neuropathy in my hands and asked it was keeping me from my hobbies as he wants me to enjoy my life. This was never brought up with the other doctor’s office and it really touched me as it IS important!
I’ve had 2 treatments in my town and have been very happy with how it went. The fact that I can be home 15-20 minutes after my treatment is huge! Before it would take us about 2 hours to get home and that was really wearing on me. My treatment is only about 30 minutes so I’m gone about an hour as I see the doctor or PA and then with the prep work it’s about that long. I’m so happy it’s not an all day thing anymore! So far, the only hard side effect is how exhausted I am. I’m tired ALL THE TIME! I’m not complaining, though, as it’s so much better than the chemo! My hair is coming back, I had eyebrows and eyelashes and I’m very happy about that! 🙂
I will write more later and talk about more than my health….I promise! I have some cute crafty things to share and some other things I’ve been working on. Thank you so much for your prayers and concern. Knowing I’m being prayed for keeps me going!
