Post-infusion symptoms worsen

I have not posted in a few days because there really is no news. I feel lousy, my symptoms continue and I so want to have this over and done! I experience sweats and then shivers and my body never quite seems to be at a comfortable temperature. I run a temperature most of the time, despite taking the medications Dr. Hema and Dr. Infekto suggested. After the previous two infusions, the symptoms declined in about a week; well, tomorrow is a week. Let the symptoms subside!

The silver lining is that next week, the 23rd and 24th, is my fourth and final infusion! I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Today's weight 164.5. It sure was fun weighing 174 for a day or so. I hope the lymphoma going to remission will improve my general health, especially my anemia and low iron, and I can get to a physique somewhere above 'scrawny.'


  1. Got a note from Sylvia that you are a little better today. Good to hear. How ya gonna put some meat on those bones?


  2. Glad to hear you are coming out of the misery of this week. The finish line is within sight.
    Keep your spirits up.

  3. Sorry to take so long to figure out how to join in, but know our thoughts and prayers are with y'all. Woodrow and Jennie send their love.
