We return just in time for another round of chemo for me on the same day I have my next scan and an EKG to make sure my heart is holding up to all these meds. I'm hoping the vacation will keep me from getting too anxious about the scan. I'll let you know how THAT pans out.
Anyway, here's what I found on the web this week.
"Doctors need to ascertain which cell subgroups are truly driving the tumor’s growth and metastasis and select drugs that target the critical genes within those cells. It can be a mistake to assume that the largest, most dominant subgroup is the one to be targeted."
I would argue that having a toddler around helps make chemo bearable. It's hard to focus on how terrible you feel when you've got a child demanding that you build train tracks or watch another episode of Curious George with him.
