I wish there were more to share, but had a blood draw today and the results came back all within the expected ranges. So that was good. We met with Dr. R at Group Health, the new young doctor who has come up from Tacoma. She seems very capable, but my daughter (bless her heart!) has been doing yoeman's work in pulling the strings in the system and my next round of chemotherapy, which starts next week, will be done at Seattle Cancer Care. This is good news because I will be under the care of lung cancer specialists. Once this next round (which is three weeks of paclitaxel once a week, then one week off) is over, I will have CT scans to see if there has been any effect on the tumors in my mediastinum and in my lungs.
Fingers and toes crossed. I still have hair, but it is wispier and thinner than before. We will see if I can make it to my Defiance High School reunion on July 31 without a wig. Might as well give up on trying to impress anyone these days.
