New Suit

Had to buy a new suit today. My old suit is way too big, even across the shoulders. I never knew you lost weight in your shoulders. Oh well. Maybe Anthem will cover part of the cost? I seriously doubt it. I have to fly to Phoenix on the 26th for big meeting, pitching our services to a very large company, thus the new suit. I'm going to have to delay my next chemo treatment to go, but this is a meeting I can't miss.

It's Saturday and I'm feeling better, pretty typical of the treatment cycles. The one thing that keeps getting worse is my energy level, though. I can't seem to get motivated to do much of anything. I'm just tired all the time, and I seem to be moving pretty slowly these days. I feel OLD. After all this crap is done, I'm going to get in decent shape and stay there.

Half Way

Had the 6th of 12 treatments on Monday. As usual it made me sick for 3 days. I wound up having to leave work early on Wednesday. I slept all afternoon and most of the evening, but feel much better now. Nothing new or interesting to report, just muddling through. I haven't lost any more weight, so I think I've pretty much bottomed out at around 175 pounds. That's about 55 pounds less than when all this started. Weight I should have lost a long time ago.
