Ok, so last post I asked if anyone used MyFitnessPal as an app, let me know if you do. Motivation as friends work out together is proven to work, let's connect if you're working out towards a goal. Health wise, doing good. I talked to a colleague of mine today who has a daughter who has a very rare form/condition of leukemia and she is one of two people who have her condition in the US? I'm all ears when someone is going through the BAM! Of facing cancer and in this case it's very rare. His daughter is facing a bone marrow transfer which is one of the more risky surgeries....and the donor is his younger daughter. Shit, I have it easy by comparison. Do me a huge favor, pray for David and his family, they need it more than I do.

Okay, I received my first Lupron shot on 3/11 and its designed to starve the prostate cancer which for me is now active again. Oh yeah, just like clockwork, ,the side effects are kicking in already. I go back to the DR. On April 8th and I'm sure by then they will be in full swing. Early signs, mood swings? (Maybe its because I lost my aunt/godmother yesterday) hot flashes? Maybe it's because I ate very spicy food today...we'll see. More later, be well and Go Badgers!!!

Monday morning, a shot of Lurpon. Welcome back to hormone treatment. Last time it included a second drug, Casodex but this time it will only be Lupron. As a reminder, prostate cancer's food source is testosterone so the Lupron treatment is designed to shut down the testosterone production in my body. If the food source is taken away, the cancer should be starved and go into remission. Last time the side effects were, well, more than interesting. More on that later, I'm going to kick this cancer again, no doubt about it.
