Hoping to Escape Soon
Had snow flurries here in Bend twice last week and almost got myself stuck in the snow on a trip up into the mountains Monday, so am really hoping I can get out of here pretty soon before I am marooned here for the winter.
Completed the 5th round of chemo on September 27th and I guess the cumulative affect of all that poison in my system finally caught up to me. My oncologist said the goal in fighting this disease into remission is to get in between four and six rounds of chemo, so the fact that I managed five rounds before running into pain and leg weakness he felt was good enough. I now wait a few weeks for the drugs to get out of my system and then begin taking Revlimid for my maintenance therapy. I can’t lie, the side affects of this drug do scare me, but I guess I have little choice in the matter, will have to wait and see. So I will have to stay here a bit longer as the doc will start me off with as light a dose as possible and then monitor my response for a couple of weeks.
In the meantime, I continue my attempts to figure out how to use these acrylics. The image at the top of the post took me a little longer to complete than I like but I ended up kind of pleased with the outcome. You can right click on the image to see a larger version since there is a lot of detail in this painting.
