The cells have grown enough.
I should have jumped for joy when they told me. But I knew they would grow (these are my amazing T cells we are talking about). And I knew when they confirmed this that I would be an anxious mess.
Because now I have a decision to make. I am torn between what I think are my best two options: Ipi here in Utah (the drug I did last June with amazing results and horrible side effects), or the TIL trial in Seattle. Luckily, I don't have to decide just yet. The Seattle doctor is trying to work with my insurance company to get the hospital stay approved (good luck with that!). This will give me some time to continue collecting information and maybe to find some peace.
This is going to be a very hard decision to make. It makes my heart race just thinking about it. I will try and write up the dilemma here in a bit.
I know I am very fortunate to have options. And honestly, they are both really good options. But which is best?....
