Hi to all my wonderful clients!

So many of you have asked how I am managing my non-Hodgkins Lymphoma since I was diagnosed just over a year ago, and I wanted to provide an update.

First, let me thank you all for the patience and understanding you have shown me this past year. It has been challenging learning to cope with the fatigue, the depressed feelings, the worry, and then getting Covid. You have all been truly amazing through all of this and I am so fortunate to have you in my life. Your support has helped me more than I can ever express.

I continue to see my fantastic doctor regularly. This means regular CT scans, blood tests, and some infusions. This past summer my medications were adjusted and this has made a tremendous difference as a lot of the fatigue was due to medication. In the past month, I have more energy and feel I am back to my silly, cheerful self. My most recent CT scan showed some increase in my lymph node size (not good), but not significant enough to cause worry. My doctor is on top of everything, so with his guidance, I am very positive about my future.

This past year was a learning year for me and had me make many adjustments. I apologize if I had to cancel an appointment or reschedule you as I found my way back to “normal”. But I feel I am back on track and will do my utmost to provide you with the best service you have come to expect.

Again, I cannot thank you enough for all your love and support. Having such great clients and friends means so much to me and my family.

Feel free to reach out to me at any time and I will do my best to accommodate your service needs.

With lots of love,

Nikki
