Oncology Visit

Finally home as they were running way behind due to a mandatory staff meeting that went way over their planned time. Sandi's blood work was good enough that the decision was made to pretty much leave things alone right now. A couple of drug doses have been bumped up a little bit, but they were minor tweaks.

They want to give her further time to recover from all the radiation she has had, including the various scans, so the next Pet Scan is moved back at least a month. Resumption of chemo is therefore also on hold for now. We go back in a month.

Sounds encouraging!

Very positive but not altogether surprising news, since Sandi has long shown herself to be Miracle Woman.

(Stan Lee, are you listening?)

I think it is, Bill. They wanted to run a couple of things to make sure about some stuff. But, all in all, she seems to be relatively stable. Obviously, the cancers could be running wild and we just don't know it yet, but from a blood work perspective, things look pretty good.

That she is, Barry. While she was not wearing it today, she has a t-shirt for the new Wonder Woman movie reboot and has taken to wearing it to the cancer doc. It makes a statement. :)
