March 8, 2020


Two more days until I lurch into my 50s. 


Wish the MRI results weren't such a mixed result - read - disappointing: Tumor at T4 is stable
(maybe the last 9 months of chemo worked?) but the tumor at C2 is slightly bigger.  UVa (Dr. Purow) and NIH (Dr. Gilbert) have weighed in.  Thinking I'll try an indefinite course of Avastin after a month off to hopefully come around some.  My poor nails and skin are a mess from the Lapatinib and Temodar.  And I just feel lousy.


PS The Race for Hope on May 3 2020 is the twenty-year anniversary of my first surgery at GW.  Let's have the best year ever for Team Carol Welsh Super Survivor!
