What the hell was I thinking scheduling a trip to Mayo during xmas week?
Oh well, nobody says that tumors ever took a week off.
Tomorrow I will get my standard regimen of blood work, abdominal MRI and straight dope from the doctor. I really have no idea what to expect. As you all know, I have been feeling quite a bit better these past weeks after getting on Demser. That is not to say that everything is perfect and of course there are more than a few things that I am worried about.
But … the tumors were essentially, statistically, static in July and I can only hope that they are still doing that. It’s hard not to attribute bumps and pains to the cancer, but I do my best to realize that even with a disease like this a person can still just get a boring old sore back once in a while.
So off we go to Rochester tonight. First a wonderful evening with Maggie, her sister, and her folks. Later this week my son Drew’s 21st birthday, the first fully-attended Enright xmas in a few years, and then back to Rochester for all the same with the entire Hepper clan.
Good news or bad, I’ll be back here to fill you all in, but probably not until next week.
Cheers and joy and follow this song to YouTube
