CANCER / HOPE / =^) … Met with Oncology today and my current health assessment: Am healthy in every way except for the effects of radiation and chemo … but am doing well in living with that. There are no detectable indicators of cancer (blood/chest xray/urine/physical exams for tumors, etc.). Comprehensive testing (MRA/PET Scan) will begin in February or March once my body settles down from radiation treatment — which creates false positives.
They had more good news … recently published research links specific DNA markers within my cancer with a potentially fatal weakness identified in the cancer … the tradeoff is that I must continue on with more chemo to get the possible payoff.
I want to see grandbabies and grandpuppies and see if social security gets fixed and to be a pain-in-the-ass factchecker for another 10-20 years.
Sign me up! I told the doctors — but I did have one question: Is it possible to get my chemo in chocolate flavor? … because the regular stuff sucks!!!
