Didn’t sleep very well last night. Woke up about 12:30 AM and was just wired (from the dexamethasone) but wired is better than jittery that I felt during the first Cycle. Went to work. We’ll see how long I last.
Made it through the day. Then went to go see Margot and Neal.
Margot worked on the tightness in my neck, shoulders and back. She has truly magic hands.
Neal expanded upon our conversation of last week. I told him that I seemed to withstand the onslaught of the Chemo better this Cycle 2 with fewer side effects. I asked how well in line my neck was after last weeks adjustment. Neil said it was pretty good and spent time dialing it in even closer for my Chemo next week.
He compared the adjustments he’s dong for me with those a chiropractor would do for a boxer about to enter a fight. He said the athlete needs to be ready for his fight and said I need to be ready for the fight that i am in.
Makes sense to me.
