I said goodbye yesterday at Dr. Luke’s office here to all the wonderful people. Today I had to rush in for another transfusion and got to see the girls at the hospital where I have that done here and got to tell them goodbye. We’re having lots of goodbye dinners this week with friends we met from here and a pool party on Saturday. The people of the Midwest are as nice as people say they are! We will really miss them.
After conferring with a doctor in India, Dr Sen, I decided there was no way with my PSA elevation during The eight weeks after my first treatment(500%) and my scans Showing all the original metastasis stable and growing and a dozen new spots, That I could rationalize (and she said they would not consider me for) a second treatment.
My blood work at the doctors office yesterday also reconfirmed that I would not be able to start back really soon because my ANC number was still way too low for the infusion.
So we are having a friend fly down on Sunday to help with the drive back which will start on Monday and take it a week( a very slow easy going road trip.)Dr Sen also suggested exactly what my oncologist back in Miami had suggested, as soon as I get my blood work good enough to continue with chemo.
Thanks to all who have been following me on this journey. I’m sorry that Lu 177 didn’t work out for me, but I remember the odds saying 10% don’t do well. I never thought I’d have to be a part of that group but I guess now I realize SOMEONE has to be.
I’m looking forward to our road trip and getting home to my Sparky🥰🥰🥰
P. S. People have come to expect food pics. This was lunch... a nice homemade French dip sandwich with sliced sirloin... horseradish and au jus.
