Hi Keep Pounding Rob team!
It has been a busy week so far. Here is the latest update:
Rob had his PET scan and bone marrow biopsy this week. These tests, along with labs, will determine if the cancer is still active.
We hope to learn the results next week, and will post an update as soon as we have more information.
Rob’s cardiologist appointment this week went well. The heart medicine is helping slow the heart down considerably. We haven’t had any readings in the 130’s and 140’s as had become the norm prior to starting the heart medicine
Unfortunately, it’s also lowering his already low blood pressure (they think from the chemo). However, since it has helped his heart so much, we are going to stick with this medicine for now. We are monitoring his blood pressure closely, along with his dizziness.
If the low blood pressure symptoms get worse we will let the cardiologist know. In the meantime, we are thankful his heart rate has finally returned to normal!
At the bookstore, Rob made it not only on the up escalator, but the down one too!! This is a major milestone, especially after many weeks of much unsteadiness and dizziness.
Thank you, Keep Pounding Rob team, for being there for every milestone, challenge and scare along the way. We are so thankful to have each of you on our side!!
