“Chemo shmeemo. Chemo is no fun because you can’t hug people. Especially old people like Mimi” – Julian
This was Julian’s reaction when I told him Mimi (my mom) starts chemo this Wednesday (Nov 14). They tried to get her into a clinical trial but she didn’t fit the criteria. There was a PARP inhibitor trial but the prior two PARPs she was on didn’t work so chemo was the way to go.
After 3 cycles (9 weeks) of chemo she will have a CT scan. So with accounting for delays she will most likely have a scan at the end of January early February. This chemo cocktail caused a lot of platelet issues last time around. So I’m just sort of accounting for delays due to that.
All the love and support is so deeply appreciated. We are very blessed to have so many wonderful people thinking of us and praying for us.
Thank you all so very much ❤️
