Melanoma Monday??

So I'm watching the local channel 8 news last night, and they say it's "Melanoma Monday" and did this story on skin care pertaining to the Texas heat and summer coming.   What the what???   How did I not know about this?   I should have been leading the parade or riding in a convertible corvette or on top of a firetruck.   I've sent more friends of mine (well, actually their wives have sent them) to the dermatologist than Lindsey Lohan has lawyers........and I get no love on Melanoma Monday?   

Oh well........but I do have a quick update on the half dosage of Sylatron....

Last Friday was my second round of the half dosage, and I have to say that it's tolerable.   By Saturday afternoon/evening I can feel my hands aching, and a slight headache, but nothing too terrible.  And most of the weekend I'm pretty tired, but if this is what the half dosage has in store for the next 2 years plus, I can handle it.   Plus I've just come to the conclusion that I'm mentally ready, and this is a marathon, not a sprint, and I'm in for the long haul.    

I go back in for bloodwork next week, and am hoping the white blood cell count and liver function continues to improve from 2 weeks ago........if that is the case then I'm set!

Have a great week everyone!!!!!!!!!!
