I’m back in Dana-Farber for the next five days of chemo. I didn’t miss this place at all. The cancer markers in my blood have all but gone away- showing that I am at normal human levels. I asked if that means I can stop the chemo treatment early. Of course not. This afternoon I will have another PFT (lung) test. My hair has been falling out slowly over the last few days. It looks like an ape has been using the bar of soap in my shower.

My treatment today included cisplatin, the “P”, and Eposin, the “E” of BEP chemo- neither of which caused any recognizable side effects while at Dana-Farber. There were a bunch of patients who got sick- immediately after eating lunch. I was given a “heavy dose” of Zofran, which may explain why I didn’t feel anything.
Once I got home, I took Bruno for our normal 2-mile walk and started to feel unusually fatigued. I’m not sure if it is because of the drugs or because I woke up at 4 AM. I will go to bed earlier tonight just as a precaution.
