Monday, (MLK Day) was day 90 for the steroids.  That was the last day I took steroids.  Since then, my body has been going through withdrawal.  I've been having all day headaches, and my head hurts.  The headache is really painful early in the morning.  The early morning one has been like an Interferon headache.  My neck has also been hurting as well.  These headaches have not been fun.

Check up with Oncologist

  I saw my oncologist this morning.  My bp was good, and since December 26, I have gained 9 pounds.  I have until February 24, to loose that weight.  I was doing really good staying within a 4 pound range while on the steroids.  I have had more energy the last three weeks, compared to how I was the previous 6 -7 weeks before then. 
   I will be done with the steroids on Monday!  Yeah!  I was originally scheduled to see my lung doctor on Monday, but that appointment has been cancelled and rescheduled twice.  I am now scheduled to see him on Monday, February 24. Will see if that stays or gets rescheduled.  My oncologist is allowing my lung doctor to schedule my next CT scan. 
   I am scheduled to see my oncologist 8 days before my birthday.  So, if this scan comes back clean, then I will go a year after July's visit before I see my oncologist.  After next month's port flush and blood work, I will start going about 6 weeks in between port flushes.  I don't do that now, but will start doing that.

Happy 2014

New Year's Day, 2014.  I spent last night with my single's group from church.  We rented the same place as we did last year.  A certain restaurant catered the meal, had dancing, devotional, and a lot of fun.  Here are some pics from our New Year's Eve party.
