Taking a Chance

This is my Vidaza week, five daily injections with a dose of Zofran to prevent nausea. The problem with Zofran is that it has side effects, like most any drug do. The most bothersome side effect for me is constipation. Who needs that? I have enough problems.

So I requested that I skip the drug and see how it goes. Guess what? No nausea.

I saw my neurologist yesterday for a follow-up and he was pleased with my "progress." My nerves are okay, but my right hand, arm and shoulder have a way to go before they return to normal. I've been doing some exercises and hope to return to yoga on Saturday, in my opinion, the best way to straighten myself out.
