The Mutation I Longed For...





…has eluded me.  Poop.  I learned yesterday that the tumor mutations that are favorable to the targeted medication therapy, (the one-a-day pill) were not present in my tumor.  Which now means that I have to turn to "Plan B", which is traditional chemotherapy.  I am so disappointed.  I was really hoping to have an easier therapy course for my family and me.  So, as I eloquently  outlined my situation to Nathan and Nina…."It’s the same shitty disease, it’s just a different battle now.” 

            Phone messages are out already this morning trying to schedule a doctor’s appointment, IV infusion education session and IV session.  Hopefully we can get this show on the road tomorrow.  I also want to hit the wig shop sometime soon.  Sheeesh…so many ducks to get in a row.

So sorry Lu. I'm thinking about you all the time and sending smooth sailing vibes. Maybe you should try red curly hair this time.
