By the time this post appears, we will be on the way to Texas Oncology at Medical City Dallas Hospital. Sandi has an appointment to do blood work, have her port flushed, and see the doctor. Today, we are supposed to get the results of the PET Scan.
Best case scenario is that the spinal tumor that was
radiated all of July has shrunk and the others in various places
have not grown very much. In that case, they may or may not
restart chemo today.
Worst case scenario is the radiation did not work AND other sites
have also exploded in growth. They would restart chemo with that
too though it most likely would be a more experimental type of
Her chemo options are increasingly limited as her body build up a
tolerance and then the chemo stops working.
So, we just don't know. We both are worried and upset though she
handles all this far better than I do.
Between all that and the financial stress as everything is past
due and we are facing cutoff of power and such in a week or so the
stress around here is pretty damn grim.
So, if you have a moment this morning, please keep a good thought in mind for us. Thank you.
