Infusion 12 of “who knows”

I really want to scream!

My 12th chemo infusion was supposed to be the last, to be immediately followed by a few weeks of radiation to eliminate what was left of the 3 tumors in my liver. And then I would be monitored.

That was until my oncologist announced that he wanted the radiation to be followed by another 6 months of the same chemo.  To maximize the chances of eliminating those damn tumors. He calls this the “whack ’em all” approach.

So, while there is still hope that I be put into long term remission, I am really discouraged at the thought of 12 more chemo sessions.

I was so looking forward to get a break from chemo.

On a more positive note, my mother is doing better.

  4. Jiao! I agree that news sucks. Right now I am looking outside the office window. The wind is blowing strongly moving the branches of these palm trees. They sway. They have just become still, just now.

  5. Hello Philippe,
    Que tu es impressionnant, quel courage.
    Je suis content de lire que ta maman va mieux, triste de lire qu’on te conseille 6. Mois de traitement supplémentaire.
    Mais l’objectif est fort attrayant
    Je suis en pensée avec toi
    Gaut
