Ah – what a fantastic weekend. And would you believe that I slept until – wait for it – wait for it – SIX AM!!!! So, I’m feeling good today – well rested.
We’re back to the cancer scene though. Two hour appointment at the Breast Center. I met with the head doc for ISPY2 on campus. It was a great appointment – I learned a ton. Chemo day one has now been scheduled. Holy moly! Chemo day one will be next week on Wed – 17 Aug 2011. We have to wait until the characterization of my cancer is completed so that my added ISPY2 drug can be selected.
12 weeks of weekly taxol followed by 8 weeks of biweekly adriamycin and cytoxan – with the targeted therapeutic added in during the taxol phase (I think it’s just during the taxol phase).
Tomorrow – ultrasound for the cyst on my ovary. DZ says he feels it’s nothing to worry about. Ok – I’ve heard that before… So, of course I’m worried. But not massively so, I guess.
Wednesday – installation of a port for ease of chemo administration. Okay – I’m a little freaked out about having actual hardware installed, but then I can avoid getting stabbed repeatedly. However, just because I don’t get stabbed through my natural skin, there will be stabbing … just into the port … therefore, there will be jamba juice.
So – signing off for now. If I am lucky, Thurs and Fri will be without appointments.
OH MY GOSH… my child just came in and said – mama – someone left this weird hat on the door…. Oooo – it’s an awesome hat with skulls on it!!!! And it fits!!! Thank you L and J! Bummed I missed you tho – I was probably down the street…
