You're doing great!
Husband was diagnosed stage IV, lymph and bone mets, in December 2016. He went through taxotere last spring. In December 2017 his scans showed that the lymph nodes were back to normal size and his bone mets had all but disappeared. Husband ate high protein, low carb during chemo but he also ate way too much peanut butter (lol) and probably drank too much wine, but he deserved the treat!
Husband also decided against the Neulesta injection, instead he talked to his MO about
reducing the dosage of chemo. First reduction was 20% and his WBC was quite high. Next reduction was 10% and that gave him a good balance. He used lots of hand sanitizer, I went through the house with Lysol wipes constantly, and he often worked from home or closed his door at work to avoid sick people. He used a mask at times too when his counts were really low.
By the end of the spring, his energy levels were very low so I helped with mowing the lawn, running up and down the stairs if he needed things and we just took our time. He also tried to use the elipitical daily when he didn't have shortness of breath. He was in good health before the diagnosis so it was hard for both of us to see him "sick".
A couple of things you might want to consider is making sure you're drinking enough water, gatoraide etc. and make sure you're getting enough protein. There are vegan protein drinks and powder that you can incorporate (if you haven't already) and of course the usual combination of brown rice and beans which, when eaten together, creates a complete protein. Since you're eating a few biscuits, I've heard that whole wheat and peanut butter also completes the protein chain.
We're not vegan, but my daughter is, so I've learned a lot about
some very tasty food.
