Back to cancer work 04/30/14

Well I had a 5 week break and decided that was good enough for me to get going again. Last week I had a CT scan and the results were as good as they could have been. In my unfortunate case The tumors are not supposed to shrink anymore. All 8 tumors held steady with no changes and I have had a build up of scar tissue over one in my sternum. Undertermined if that is good or bad at the moment. I feel relatively good considering but I also stopped taking every pill and medication they gave me. SO I cleaned myself out. Now that I am starting out again the symptoms are also more prominent but not as bad as before. I feel like hell but if I slow down then the cancer wins.
So What have I been doing? I have been at every Beloit Snappers home game this year. I’ve gone on a small road trip to South Bend to see Braden Shipley pitch (and he was awesome). I also saw and met Clint Frazier in South Bend as well. Super nice guy and takes time with every fan. Pretty awesome and grounded for a kid if you ask me. Past that Nothing much has been happening. Laying low really. I have received more TTMS and IP autos so bare with me in finding all the photos of them.

On Break 04/05/14

Well I am on a 3 week break. The CT showed that nothing grew at all. It just is holding steady which is exactly what we want. So hopefully nothing changes over the next 3 weeks and I can just enjoy it. When my 3 weeks are up I will have another CT scan and possibly a week or two off after that assuming it is good. So what have I been doing? Well not much really. My father and I went to the last Brewers exhibition game at Miller Park and had a great time. I’ve also went to the Beloit Snappers home opener the other day. I’ve also hit up the gym a bit trying to lose all of the water weight I’ve gained from the steroids and chemotherapy. So far so good. I have been dealing with some symptoms of chemo withdrawal. It has been pretty up and down. Stomach issues, head aches, and body aches. I’m holding it together though. As for my mental issues they are still there a prevalent, but not as bad because I’m not taking any rounds of chemo. Anxiety and PTSD have been the lone pain in my ass. My memory and hands have been pretty good. So all in all I can’t argue too much.
