Another week with lots going on.
We did get some rain and it cooled off--ahhh! Someone above me is putting out seed for the birds and it ends up all over my patio. Have to sweep a lot and lay my chair sideways to keep seed off of it. Free seed?
My right eye had been a bit red for a few days. Thought I had scratched it or something--but by Tuesday night it was wildly red and I knew I had pinkeye!
Leah took me to the walk-in clinic so I could get eyedrops. Needed to have taken them for 24 hours in order to see my oncologist, Dr. Kobrossy, on Wednesday.
Got the replacement for my new laptop that wouldn't keep a charge and this one is working fine so far.
Dr. Kobrossy with Leah. Well, he was even more positive than he was last time. The bloodwork he had done was for genetic testing and he said that I am a perfect candidate for immunotherapy. And he thinks the immunotherapy would work great on me. I wouldn't even have to do the surgery after the tumors had shrunk to freeze or burn the areas.
BUT--insurance won't allow it until you have tried chemo. So, I am starting chemo on October 1st. Weekly. Three weeks of the milder stuff and then the fourth week is another cocktail that's stronger. In two or three months we'll do a scan. If my platelets drop or if I have a diffiuclt time with side effects he will switch me over to immunotherapy (in a heartbeat, sounded like). So, I am hoping to get switched over in the next couple months.
Dagan, Leah, and Leah's brother, Aaron, made trips in a borrowed truck and hauled up huge boxes to my lawn. They emptied them, collected the styrofoam & cardboard in big bags, hauled them in, and got the parts all put together. Afterwards they hauled all the trash away and rode off into the sunset. Not really, but it was after dinnertime.
