Back to Dominating the Cancer Center

Today I have my check up after my five week vacation from the cancer center. I received a very warm welcome by both my phlebotomist and the receptionist. Both recognized that I have not been around for a while. I am hoping that 5 weeks will turn to three months very soon.

The point of this check up is to take a look at how I am doing now that I am in maintenance mode chemo and where my M-spike and other counts are at. We want an M-spike of 0.0! The last 6 tests have come back 0.2, 0.2, 0.2, 0.2, 0.2, 0.1 respectively. Not bad given I started at 3.0 and the target is a big fat ZERO!

On a side note, a heat wave is hitting Michigan! We hit 40 degrees yesterday...watch out. The climate change is starting to motivate me to take my health back by dominating running again. It's been a challenge to find the time and motivation to exercise with kid #3 added to the mix.

By the way, I will be speaking in Frankenmuth (MI) this Saturday for those in the area! Feb 19th, 7:30-9:00AM, Zehnder’s of Frankenmuth – South entrance. Topic: Dominating Cancer through Faith, Cost $6.00 plus tip (breakfast). PLEASE RSVP to fcm.muth@gmail.com as seating is limited.

Praying for that big fat zero!! Wish we lived in your neck of the woods (well only to hear you speak...prefer our NC weather for sure!)to stop by as you share your story. Keep dominating!
