Home

Back home from the cancer doc. Sandi's blood work shows that most things are somewhat stable though she is low in a couple of areas. Nothing they want to intervene with at this point. The pain she is having as well as the swelling is caused by the cancer doing very bad things. I expected as much. They don't want to waste time on imaging now to figure out what it is doing in her skull.

So, the decision has been made to admit her Friday for the next five day round of chemo. She will, most likely, be admitted sometime mid to late afternoon.

After this next round of chemo, most likely in two to three weeks, they will do another PET Scan to reassess her cancers. Once we have that information, we all will have a better handle on things going forward. And so it goes....

Horrible thing. And you know we are on the precipice of better care for the next gens.

I know. Those advances can not come soon enough.
