6-Week Follow-up


Dr H read this!

Yesterday, I met with my radiation oncologist, Dr Holland (Dr H) at OHSU.  First order of business is always to talk about the book I’m reading while I wait for his arrival.  Each and every time he has read my book – I’m impressed.  Next time I see him I’ll intentionally bring a Stephanie Plum book.  That would make for an interesting appointment!

I’m scheduled to get a follow-up MRI at the end of May.  I am confident that what ever it shows Dr H will have a plan.  We lightly discussed next steps, just lightly.  I see no need to dive into any direction when it will depend on the images.  He has options identified; that works for me.

We talked numbers at this appointment.  I’m usually a numbers gal but not when it comes to grays, number of mets, etc…  I put an abrupt end to this subject.  Not soon enough though.  The numbers went whirling around my head last night; inappropriately at 3:30 am.

Today is dedicated to resting, sleeping, and reading the second half of my book!  A wonderful Thursday it will be.

  1. Kimmy, I will be having another craniotomy Tuesday. I ask you and all your readers to say a prayer for me.

    I love that I learned something totally new and unexpected today!
    One gray is the absorption of one joule of energy, in the form of ionizing radiation, per kilogram of matter.
    I had no idea!! Thanks for the education and I hope your grays were high (if that is a good thing) or at least right where they are supposed to be to keep that damn cancer crap away!
