Superfluous Matter

Kim came home yesterday and things have been going well. She'll probably get a lumbar puncture again next week, then some more scans and then we'll see what's next. The doctor continues to be pleased and impressed with how well Kim handles the chemotherapy treatments.

Today we made chili for supper which is always good and generates lots of yummy freezer leftovers.


Sorry for the lack of updates lately, nothing really conclusive has been happening. Kim's been getting her lumbar punctures and is pretty tired from it all but otherwise mostly OK. She's had some back pain again along with some neuropathy in her arms but the doctor prescribed some low dose morphine and that combined with a hot magic bag seems to be helping.

She had a CT scan last Friday to check the progress of the DHAP and it does appear to be working to reduce the size of the tumours in her lungs to some extent. So, she is going to be admitted to the hospital tomorrow to begin her second round.

This past weekend Kim and I went to John's house for Rib-o-rama XI and it was lots of fun. Great weather and great food and I had a chance to catch up with a few people I hadn't seen in a while. We also went to Chris and John's to play Ticket to Ride with them+Rob (although Kim had a nap instead).

All Done

Kim was released today from the hospital from her first round of DHAP. It went pretty well but she's really really tired. I suspect she'll sleep the next few days. Additionally she's getting two lumbar punctures a week to put chemotherapy directly into her spine. While she was in the hospital she got another MRI so we'll probably get some results from that this week.
