He is finding it difficult to eat more than 3,000 calories when he can’t
have a lot of fat or sugar. He is managing to get to 3,000 most days and has gained ¾ of a pound in one week. He would like to gain more but we will take it. He is moving around more but still needs help making his food as he gets tired if he is standing up and moving around too long. Every day, he seems to get just a bit better but it is going slow but steady.
With the finding of the more aggressive adenocarcinoma in the lymph nodes that were removed, Jeremy will undergo more chemotherapy.
Next Wednesday, he is having a port surgically installed in his chest and
then the Oncologist here will start him on FOLFOX chemotherapy treatment the week after that. He will have 3-6 months of chemotherapy and then be reevaluated.
He is not looking forward to the next several months but knows it must be
done to give him a fighting chance. Both doctors have told him that this is not a cure but a quality of life procedure. That is a nice way of saying, there is no telling when it will rear its ugly head again one day but Jeremy plans on enjoying each day as he gets it and will do this and any other needed treatment to be around for his family as long as he can.
