Stable, shrinking, and storms! Anti-pd1 dose 19

This post was written on Aug 14th during my infusion. I didn’t get it polished to post at the time. That night was Parent Information Night at school. Joey ended up in the PICU the next day! Add recovery from that, some time the site was down and life in general and Anti-pd1 dose 20 is only 3 days away! I am on every 12 week scans now, which is a welcome break, so this post includes the results of those scans.

Today was my appointment for scan results and my next dose of anti-pd1. It was a long morning of waiting. I was quite nervous about my scans this go round. Lots of my friends are encountering major potholes and detours on their melanoma journeys and it caused me some fear that my lately smooth road might get bumpy. I am thankful for my success on this trial but heartbroken for those who I love who are struggling. Cancer is a horrid disease. Thankfully my oncologist told me I was his only patient who received good news morning. That certainly put the wait time into perspective.

So, things are good in Marthaville! My tumors continue shrinking and remain stable. So I continue pressing on! We had a fantastic storm while I was at the cancer center including some loud thunder claps and a good power brown out.

My post infusion 30cc flush. (Other trial folks and I have noticed that this is delivered differently depending on our center. This syringe is added to my medication bag to make sure I get every drop!
