Last treatment for this cycle of treatments. #3 in cycle #7 then I get a week off before i begin treatment #1 of cycle #8

IMG_2344Used an infusion pump this time which is new for me and I must say I like it much better than the old drip method. Seems to flow the drug much more evenly and I feel much better after.

Blood pressure is right on the edge of acceptability for treatment and continues to be a concern. Taking Blood pressure meds but pressure still high.

Blood sugar was also too high (279) but this was self inflicted because I ate a high carb lunch of pizza right before coming in for treatment which was a  BIG mistake! I know better! As a result, the trial guidelines state that I must now check my blood sugar 4 times a day until I get three consecutive readings of 125 or less just to be sure that there is no problem developing. But I gotta say that that was the best pizza I’ve had in a long time, it was worth it! 🙂

So far I am pleased with this experimental drug, there are little or no side effects and it seems to be beating back the enemy pretty well so far.
