I just got an email from my job wanting to know if I would in fact be returning to work on the 22nd. It seemed doubtful that I would feel good enough to return back to work as I read the email. I have to admit that I was in a feeling of depression at the time, because I really do miss my friends at work.
I should at least finish this round and another prior to returning to work. I just need more time to heal and to go through more chemo. No stressing, just healing. It was a hard decision to make because I was looking forward to being back at work and being around my friends. I had my intravenous chemo today as I had started the Etoposide just last night.
My chemo doctor found a large mass in my intestine today and we will be getting a CAT scan to find out what it is and what is causing these abdominal blockages. The size of this mass is about the size of a grapefruit. It could just be waste this is stuck in my intestine, but what ever it is, it feels like a rock and my oncologist is concerned enough. We might be able to rid myself of the knot through drugs or surgery. We just don't know right now.
I went home shortly after chemo and crashed for the rest of the day.
