Three weeks at home!! I think that's a first since May. I have not wanted to go anywhere. Not even the grocery store.
I feel great. The fatigue I had from the PD-1 seems to have
disappeared. Tomorrow I have an appointment with the lympedema clinic
to get a compression sleeve for my arm and hand so I can start
exercising again (impossible lately with the large tumor, and then with
the swelling once the tumor was gone).
For a couple of weeks things have felt quite normal. Making jam,
volunteering at the school, organizing my house, soccer games, piano
practice, church, friends, family dinners. Normal is wonderful. This break has been
very good for my spirits.
Next week we should have a
better idea if this Seattle trial will be an option. Even if it is, we
will need to decide if that is the next step or if we want them to just
freeze those cells for future use. I suppose we will be scanning soon
to see what's happening. I don't have any more palpable tumors, so I
can't really predict how that will go. I don't have any pain, so it
can't be that bad.
Thank you all for your
kindness and encouragement. I'm starting to believe the best way to
learn these two virtues is to be the recipient of them. I should be an expert by now.
