Slight complications

Thursday evening, I felt chilly even though we keep the air conditioning at 78. I also felt quite drowsy. I went to the bedroom and, the next thing I knew, I had slept two hours! After I checked my emails, I shut down the computer and went right back to bed. I slept from 11:00 pm to about 7:45 am!

This morning, I awoke to feeling sluggish and with a temperature of 101.6. While these symptoms are a bit uncomfortable, they are no where near what I experienced after the first infusion. If I have a bit of a rough ride after each infusion, but we can get this darn thing into remission, then that's a price I am very willing to pay.

I will be very interested in how long it takes for this to subside this time. I just want to be in top shape Wednesday so I can get the third infusion behind me.

Today's weight: 163!


  1. Wish I weighed 163 but I know you must be careful what you wish for. Hope this one is easier for you, I just know you will be well in no time, can't wait to see you guys, good luck. Love N

  2. Keep up the good work and positive attitude!!
    You are in our thoughts!! Take Care, Don & Jan

  3. Hang in there, Bill. All the lousy side effects will be worth it, if this puts the cancer in remission!! Praying for you.
