Just coming up out of the chemo crash and well into the recovery stage at day 9. While the side effects of the second cycle were more or less the same as the first, the biggest difference seems to be how I'm feeling at day 9 compared to last cycle at the same point. It's a noticeable improvement. I'm feeling better at day 9 of this cycle than I did at any time during the first cycle. Actually at this point I feel better than I felt at any time since my initial diagnosis. With the chemo, you go down and then back up. Meanwhile, the cancer goes down, but doesn't come back up before you hit it again. So this time back up really feels better than the last one. I really hope that means the chemo is killing the cancer. Sure feels that way. It's just very encouraging and I wanted to share that with everyone.
