Nov. 5 Surprise, Surprise, Surprise!

Gomer Pyle - Surprise

I’m convinced that I may have the shortest period of remission in recorded history, LOL! As I’d said yesterday, I had to come back in today for labs. Well, turns out the cancer is spiking – so it’s back to the ole drawing board.

I’ve got another mini-vacay at Froedtert while they give me fluids to drop the calcium and run tests to make sure I can tolerate the chemo – which we’ll use to kill the cancer for a bit while we look at options. Doc thinks the CAR-T therapy might be the way to go. That’s the one I’d hoped to get in the first place. 🙂

So with any luck, I’ll be here until Tuesday, get the first round of chemo, then it’s back to probably weekly trips for treatment until I’m approved for the CAR-T. Or whatever we come up with. If nothing else, it makes my insurance decision easier. Here are some fun pics & commentary.

What's all this?

I’ve consolidated my health updates to friends & family from other sites for convenience.

GoFundMe & MyLifeLine were super-easy to use, but I didn’t want folks to feel compelled to donate while reading the latest news.

If you do feel prompted to help, use this link – they take no cut, so all of your gift goes to pay down expenses.

Better yet, why not hire me to do something great for your organization?

Keep me talkin'

I'm saving a ton with Mint Mobile - use this link and we both get a bonus!

I’m going to add a link to expenses here pretty soon.  It’s crazy –
