First, thanks all for the thoughts and insight on the Avastin trial. I picked up some information from the doc's office yesterday that I need to get through that today in addition to all the links and articles people have sent. I do appreciate it. I'm going to sit down this morning, digest it all, and write all my questions down.
The doc called last night, must have been between 8:30 and 9:00 but I had taken two simply sleep to kick the jet lag to the curb, and was out. Sammi still woke me though - hope I didn't sound like a total idiot but I told him I was sleeping and asked that he call back today which he said he will. He just wanted to make sure I got the info.
I chopped my hair off yesterday. I had been letting it grow out since last June and, for me, it got pretty long, but now it's back to normal - very short. Figure it will be easier that way. I may actually buzz it though next month. How about a #1?
I'm having a Muga (don't have the form in front of me for correct spelling), test on my heart tomorrow. They want a clear image, and to make sure everything is good, in case I decide to do the trial. One of the rare side effects is heart trouble.
On Friday, I go back into the hospital for an outpatient procedure to put a port in my chest (lower neck area - not sure exactly where). It goes under the skin and gives them easy access for blood tests and the chemo so I don't have to get pricked every other week. This process grosses me out more than the lumpectomy. It reminds me of those "ports" on people in the Matrix, just a bit freaky.
