Well I am home from Houston. Got home yesterday about noon. Yes, we had to reschedule our return flight because our appointment ran three hours late. Poor planning on my part, I should have given that possibility consideration when I made the reservations. I have to get it off my chest that I was extremely disappointed that my face time with Dr. Cathy Eng was 15 minutes. All the biopsy slides that I ran around collecting were never even opened.
I won't bore you with all the details. Bottom line is that Dr. Eng recommended Carbo/Taxol chemotherapy. This is the same regimen that Winnie (Caroline) had in California for her liver mets. It was quite successful for her and I am certainly excited about the prospect of that kind of success for my pleura mets. Caroline and I have been in email contact and she shared with me regarding her side effects and length of treatment. I spoke with my Rad/Onc today and they are going to get a PET scheduled and a follow-up with my Med/Onc to get the ball rolling. If I said I was looking forward to the chemo you all know that would be a lie, but I will do what is necessary to get to the other side of treatment.
Thanks again for all your concerns, prayers and well wishes.
Blessings to all,
