It's been a busy 4 weeks of travel and medical adventures. First chemo, then the Lung Cancer Leadership Conference in Atlanta. I got back from that trip in time to go to Phoenix to speak at a Foundation Medicine annual meeting, then vacationed in the southwest with family. Got home, had my pre-chemo blood tests, and discovered that I have kidney damage and high blood pressure from chemo. I spent 8 days in the hospital as a result.
I'm now home and on a cancer treatment break while I adjust to a fistful of new blood pressure drugs and wait to see how much my kidneys will recover. I'm trying hard not to be anxious about my situation. Next week I see my local oncologist and nephrologist, and we shall see what we shall see.
