The Silver Lining

It’s been a good couple of days but today I go back for chemotherapy.

I’m getting a new drug added in so we’ll have to see how I react to this new drug. It’s called Avastin, and one of the side effects is that I could end up with a perforation in my colon, but there’s only a 1% chance of that.

The way that my luck is going, I’ll probably be in that 1%, but all we can do is wait and see what happens.

The reason for me getting Avastin is that it enhances the effectiveness of the other drugs I’m getting and it helps to prolong my lifespan.

The silver lining, and one of the good things about where my weight is headed, is that I’m able to fit into my old shirts. I can wear my old XXL shirts and they even fit me a little loose.

Gotta see the good in the bad.
