We still haven't don't IVIG, as my hands and feet haven't gotten worse....I even felt some tingling in my fingers today. And some of the numbness in my feet has dissipated in patches. The nurse walked four laps with me in early evening When I finally had enough stamina.
Also got my final round of Rituxan to really kill any remaining cells. This is the "milder" chemo I had a reaction to on day -6. All transfused without incident, other than a queasy stomach.
No real schedule as the days goes by, just depends on the hour and what my body wants to do at that scone. Last week I took a nap from 2-4:30 pm. Today my nap was earlier in the morning. My day usually starts around 5am and ends around 9 pm..

Nick left today and I cried for a solid half hour. Whether you know him or not, send a nice thought to the universe in his honor. What a guy. At my beckon call while I did chemo, my biggest cheerleader for the finish line, constant reminder of why this is all good, errands to trader joes, laundry runs, soup pickup at Saigon sister almost daily, corn bread muffin runs, my gluten free pancakes from trader joes heated every morning.... I miss him already,
Folks arrive tonight. Hoping for a few more days of mild while the body heals. Will be good to have someone here to get me my favorite soup everyday!!
