Furthermore, I still have residual effects from the O (oncovin) in R-CHOP (my chemo regimen) that are causing weird tingling/vibrating feelings in my legs and feet. Dr. Henry encouraged me to go ahead and do whatever feels good and right. Don't look for things to get nervous about (HA! easy enough for him to say) and if you are ready to expand your family, go ahead and do so. I don't need to wait a certain period of time in remission since there is no telling if or when the lymphoma will resurface. He does not believe that pregnancy would cause a recurrence (which I was afraid of), but he said if that were to happen, there are multiple options for treating me during the 2nd and 3rd trimesters. This is if we were to even conceive at all, which I in no way believe is a foregone conclusion.
Big breath. Definitely feeling reassured after meeting with him and hearing only good things. This afternoon it is arts and crafts here at our house. Judah and I took an egg carton and shoe box to make his first diorama of The Very Hungry Caterpillar (I swear, it was his idea). Will post pictures of the finished product. Paint is drying so we can add the finishing touches.
Next scan will be a CT in June. Will probably start to panic about that May 1.
