Just Say No

I made it through today drug-free. No immodium, Prilosec, Vicadin, or anything. Probably not the smartest thing I've ever done, but wanted to see where I was. It went really well, I'm obviously healing up from the chemo and radiation pretty well. We'll see how the weekend goes :)

Better and Better

I've been off treatment now for about a week and a half. Every day I feel stronger and more myself. I'm not taking near the amount of medication I had been taking.

I'm now in the phase of waiting for the surgery. Surgery will happen some time in late February. I'll be in the hospital for 5-7 days, then some recovery time at home until I'm able to get back to work. The amount of time depends on how long it takes me to recover, so I'm eating better, trying to get into shape a little bit, and just get healthier. Hopefully that will make recovery all that much easier.

I'll post the actual surgery date as soon as I know it. But for now, I'm just happy to be feeling normal again.
