This round of chemo has really done me in, and it hasn't been pretty. I'll spare you the gory details. I had blood work done on Thursday and saw the oncologist yesterday. My blood work reflected how I've been feeling. The doctor said I have stage two adverse reactions, so I have to take a yasumi (break) from the drug for two weeks. If my blood tests are better then, I will be able to start taking the drug again, but at a lower dose.
On a good note, I finished the eight weeks of physical therapy, and while my wrist isn't totally back to normal, it's getting closer. I will continue to do my rihabiri exercises on my own. I'll see the wrist doctor and have another set of x-rays in a couple of weeks. I think stitching has been good for rehabilitating my wrist!
It is strawberry season in Shizuoka. I was surprised to see this strawberry running in the Shizuoka marathon last weekend.
