Anything Goes Linky #169, Treatment Update, And Features
Grab code from right side bar please.
Welcome to the party! I am so glad you are here. It's been a long week. I accepted a two week substitute teaching position for 4th grade. This being the first week of school, there was a lot of energy in the classroom. Next week should be a little easier. It's been so many years since I taught full time, I forgot how exhausting it can be. I am happy to be back to work though, it makes me feel like my life is finally returning to normal, since the breast cancer diagnosis.
If you would like a quick update on my treatment, and test results, keep reading, if not, go ahead and skip to our great features, and linky party. This week I received my lab results back. As I mentioned last week, they found abnormal cells in my blood work, earlier in the month. After testing my vitamin levels, and thyroid, they can't find any explanation for the abnormal cells. At this time they are writing it off as a "flook". I was not aware doctors used terminology like "flook" to explain medical conditions. I can't say I am feeling completely relaxed by the explanation. They did say they would retest my blood when I come back in, to see if there has been any changes. I guess if they are not worried, I will try not to worry. I do have some good news, I am being put on a new medication to take along side the Tamoxifen. The new prescription should help counteract the nasty side effects of the Tamoxifen. They said to give the new medicine a try for one month. If I don't feel better, and the reoccurring infection I am getting doesn't go away, they will most likely take me off of the Tamoxifen, and try a different treatment plan.
Thank you all for your continued support, and words of encouragement. I feel like I have a huge extended family of support, and well, I guess I do :)
