Now that I am all caught up I can give you the great news I have gotten this morning!
My dad gained blood all on his own! His count went from about a 9.2 to a 10.3 in one week's time with no transfusions! This is a great sign!!! This is most likely the most blood he's had in quiet some time.
We are so thankful that we tested positive for the Herceptin drug and that he can receive it again today! We have heard great things about this drug!
I actually just got a call from my dad about 15 minutes ago and we talked just like normal even though he is receiving chemo! It is great to know that besides being a bit uncomfortable, he isn't in a great deal of pain. We are just "zapping" those cancer cells out of there, he will always say!
Still no nausea, tingling fingers, etc as side effects from the chemo. He is starting to lose his hair a little bit, but we will take a minor appearance flaw over physical sickness anyday! We thank god that this is his only symptom!!
I hope I keep having good news!!! We are so blessed!
*Chemo is Monday of next week instead of Tuesday.
