I was out of the office yesterday and didn't get a chance to reply. I wanted to send you a real email so I couldn't reply from my iphone.
I am glad you are feeling well so far. I want to tell you that I left our visit Wednesday feeling very optimistic about how you are going to do through chemotherapy. At our visit I could sense a remarkable transformation happening during our conversation. I could see that once you made the decision to proceed with chemotherapy, there was no second guessing and you went forward full steam ahead. I could feel a palpable difference in how you are approaching your cancer, with your fear replaced with fortitude, your hesitation replaced by determination. When I saw you later in the infusion room you were like a different person, ready to take this on and not willing to let the treatment get in your way.
It was inspiring to see you channeling your concerns into positive actions and thoughts. That is a very healthy mechanism to deal with the cancer and the treatments, one you should feel proud of as a role model to others.
I hope you continue to feel well. The side effects you reported are within the range of what we can see. Continue to exercise and take care of yourself, and I think you well get through this like a champ. If you have any problems or concerns, feel free to email or call.
