Waiting for the action to start
Next week I go to Duke on Monday for a series of tests, that should complete all of the requirements for the clinical trial I am hoping to get into. I should know by mid week if I have been approved, which looks likely, and then we proceed on to treatment. My first treatment has been tentatively scheduled for March 4, and I am looking forward to getting started. It may sound odd that I am looking forward to starting chemotherapy, but this cancer isn't going to go away by itself. And the sooner we get the treatments started, the sooner it gets dealt with. Sitting and waiting is not one of my strong suits.
My mental outlook is quite good, although it is difficult to stay totally positive when there is a constant ache/pain in your back and leg. That is distracting. But I know that we have beaten this monster before and I fully intend to do it again. My determination, a world class medical team, your prayers, and the everpresent Hand of God combined to give me victory in my last battle, and this is just another bump in the road.
