More upcoming tests, general updates

First, thanks again to everyone who has helped with my fundraiser. Day to day life has been a bit more manageable, but I still have a ways to go on my dental treatment.

The last week has been pretty busy. I had my Photopheresis treatment on Wednesday and Thursday, and I had an appointment with a new doctor on Friday for my choking issues.

Photopheresis went well, and the bloodwork that was done prior looks good. I am low on a few things, which is a result of poor diet and lack of muscle.

My Fiday appointment was basically a consultation. I had an endoscopy a few weeks ago, and a biopsy was taken of some scar tissue in my esophagus. I have 2 tests scheduled for June. One is a esophageal manometry. The tube will be left in for 24 hours to also test my acid levels. I am not looking forward to all this, but I am sick of choking on everything!

My contact lenses are working out quite well. Although I think some adjustments need done, overall I am very happy. It’s amazing to be able to go outside without having to close my eyes and rely on drops every few minutes. I no longer feel like I have a foreign body on my eyes, and they are much less painful.

I have been put on steroids for the next couple weeks. Although I hate steroids, they do help with a lot of things. My breathing has been better, and I have a lot of energy. I will take advantage of this to rebuild some strength.

This week I have my 6 month follow up with my cancer doctor, and I have an appointment to have my contact lenses checked.
