April 6 - on since Nov 11

5 three week cycles so far,  Even cycles I get scans, bloodtests,exam.  Odd cycles I get bloodtests and exam. Discussions about breathing, coughing, pain, appetite, visual trails in my sight, and any oddities I have been feeling.  This week nothing really new. Dr E is happy that I have managed to keep some of the weight that I gained on the cruise.  My appetite has been good. He is also happy that my liver function has improved.  It had been getting slightly worse during recent weeks. With improvement this week, no need to consider adjusting the criotinib dosage.

My physical condition puts some limits on what we can handle. But we are making the most of what we can.  During upcoming weeks/months, we will visit our son and his wife to see their new home, we will make a trip to Joliet to see family, we'll try to get over to see Julie, we will attend a family wedding on Dominica and we will visit NY and do a cruise of New England and Canada.

Our challenge is to keep ourselves well enough to handle all the travel. Good Luck to us.
