My PetCt scan went well this morning. Mari spent the night last night so she could take me. It’s always better for D to be able to walk with Little J to school on scan days. It was also good to be able to take an Ativan and not worry about driving home. The Ativan relaxes me and helps me with the nausea caused by the various dyes and radioactive liquids I’m injected with.
My parents arrive on Sunday to stay in the house they’ll be renting for the coming year so that they can come and stay as often as they want.
I get my results on Monday, and we’ll be talking about a new treatment plan.
We are all still pretty stunned that Doxil is not available in spite of the fact that many cancer patients, including me, desperately need it.
Dennis and my mom have been in touch with Congresspeople all week about this. Dennis even spoke with Diane Feinstein’s Chief of Staff. I may not be able to get it for this round of treatment but will definitely need it in the future. It is insane that pharmaceutical companies and their lobbyists are coming between me and my fight to survive.
I’m happy to have so many people on my side, praying and fighting with me.
