Thank you so much to everyone who has donated to the Walk Ahead of Cancer fundraising page! I honestly can’t believe the amount of money that has been collected through the website, it really is humbling. If you want to support the cause, the website is still accepting donations until the end of the month:
I really wish I could attend the walk in person, but given everything that is going on, I really need to stay close to home.
Speaking of what is going on right now, my liver was pretty messed from the Ippy and I wasn’t able to get my last infusion. They put me on a pretty big dose of prednisone, 80 mg a day for the first week, and I’m in my second week now (60 mg a day), with almost no side effects. I went from being extremely fatigued to almost now not being able to sleep. Just trying to stay active to offset some of the side effects of it. As you can see in the chart below, the numbers are going down which is good, the high side of normal for each of the values is:
AST < 41, ALT < 63, ALK Phos < 110
Overall I’m feeling REALLY good right now. They do say that one of the side effects of prednisone is euphoria, so maybe that explains it :). Hopefully tomorrow I’ll be able to post some pictures from the walk!
