Off Track....

We have been traveling for the past month. It was a mix of work and pleasure, and a lot of visiting family. (I'll share more about the trip in a few posts over the next week.)

 It was a good trip, but since we have returned, I have been feeling off track. I just feel like we had just started to get a rhythm going before we left, and then the trip threw it all off. Focusing has been hard - with all the laundry to do, things to put away, and exhaustion that comes with being on the road for so long. I think I just need to start in and try and get back into the routine and rhythm and try and get back to "normal" (whatever that is).

I think some of the problem is that I am not seeing as much progress as I would like with my treatment. While things seem to be pretty much stable, I don't feel like there is any improvement in the size of the lymph nodes in my neck. I was hoping that after 2 months on treatment there would at least be some sign that they were starting to go down, and while the other symptoms seem to be stabilized and I do feel more like myself, I'm just disappointed that things are going slowly.

I have a appointment with Dr. Ramakrishnan this week, and oncology appointment next week, and I'll be making sure to get in to do my Tong Ren, and add in some Tui Na. I'm also researching hydrogen peroxide therapy to see if it is something I want to add to my plan and try and kick start my healing a little bit.

More to come on the trip soon, but here is a little sneak peek at some photos....
