Just a real quick entry to let everyone know that the oncologist gave us the blessing to have my scans after surgery. We are going to Houston next Tuesday, Nov. 27 for my Wednesday surgery. We plan to come home on Thursday. We will go back on Dec 6 and 7 for my scans, follow-up with the surgeon and plastic surgeon appointment to fill my expander. We fly back…AGAIN…on Dec 10 for our meeting to discuss the scans and the chemo plan.
I have an appointment with an Oklahoma City oncologist on Dec 13. This will be a consult where we show her the MD Anderson oncologist’s recommendations. If all goes well, we will start chemo in early January. Expected hair lost to happen within 3-4 weeks of starting chemo.
By the way, I tried on wigs yesterday. It wasn’t very fun.So, say a little prayer for us as we travel next week and the following week. Huge shout out to the American Airlines Executive Platinum group who, once again, have helped us with filghts on Dec 6 and 7. Shout to to Marek who also helped us with a flight on Dec 10. Shout out to Krisan, Debbie, Linda, Bill, Loretta and Glen who will all play a role in childcare. It is definitely taking a village these days. We are grateful to have such great village people.
