    Carmon in NM

    A friend is driving me to Albuquerque in the wee hours tomorrow for a full body CT and brain MRI to be followed by my 5th chemo infusion. It's going to be a VERY long day with nearly three hours driving each way and five hours for the infusion. We're hoping so much that the good news will continue with no new mets and the one on my adrenal gland continuing to shrink. Fortunately I'll get the scan results tomorrow too so no long wait and wonder.

    I hate that I'm heading into this one really tired this time but the winter storms and deep snow just really took a lot out of me this last month so what can you do? At least I know I've only got one more infusion after this one, then surgery to remove the adrenal gland and whatever is left of that pesky tumor! So about a week of feeling really awful to get through and then I'll wake up craving a cheeseburger and fries and know I'm starting the bounce back!
