Well, it is time to begin another journey. It is hard to believe the Yervoy trial will begin on Friday! I feel like I was just there, deciding to enroll in it. I am going to have faith that this was the best decision for me...even if I do get the placebo!
My schedule for the next couple of days is a tad bit busy.
Tomorrow: Fly to New York.
Friday: 12:15 meeting with The Wizard to make sure I am healthy enough to begin treatment. I also need to talk to him about this new knot on the top of my shoulder, located directly under my scar. Fluid? Lymph node? Regardless of what it is, it is very painful. Very painful.
1:00 Ultrasound to see what is going on with the mysterious thyroid nodule. Pray it is nothing serious.
2:00 day one in the "Chemo Suite." The infusion lasts 90 minutes, and then I am observed for an hour afterwards. It will be a long day.
As you read this post, I am asking you to send good juju to my new friend Julie. She has her full lymph node dissection tomorrow morning in New York. Her surgeon is actually my surgeon, Dr. Glinda! I know she will take special care of Julie, but pray her nodes are negative for melanoma and that she has a speedy recovery. People keep reminding me that prayers work, and I am seeing evidence of that.
I am a bit nervous tonight...anxious.
Let's get the show on the road & kick some melanoma ass!
