Friday I had an appointment with Dr. Dan. He told me not to give up, because they weren't giving up either. I love that. I also loved that his nurse and most of the nurses in the chemo suite were dressed in their BSU getup to support our team who ran all over NM that night. My friend Linda came with me since everyone else was busy with wedding preparations. It was fun to have her there with me. Her support means so much to me. I like to think of myself as the daughter she never had.
I will continue to have immunotherapy infusions every other week for at least 4 months, likely longer. I met with a new Dr. D gyn/onc yesterday here in Phoenix. My friend Nicole went with me and actually knows Dr. D and thinks she is fabulous as do I. When I return in December and for months after I will have immunotherapy in Phoenix so I don't have to keep going back to Boise.
I'm feeling good about my treatment. I'm really tired of this routine, but am so hopeful that this will extend my life and give me pain relief. I'm still in pain, but sitting on a heating pad or ice and taking continuous pain meds at least helps alleviate the pain a little.
