Thank you Last Week for finally coming to an end! The final day did end on an upward note.
My difficulties with OHSU and my written testimony got completely straightened out. Apparently it was a big-fat-misunderstanding a new employee had between editing employee documents and patient documents. OK. Like my lovely Blue Q socks say, “screwing up is part of the program.” It does happen; even to the best of us.
The stress caused by when am I going to move to the trial? is finally over. I’m going to OHSU tomorrow to get my I’s dotted and my T’s crossed to get things going on the trial. My anticipated start date is Tuesday, February 25th. The official trial title is: A Phase 1/2 Study of the ALK Inhibitor CH5424802/RO5424802 in Patients with ALK-Rearranged Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Previously Treated with Crizotinib. I’m happy to get on a treatment that might actually stop my pesky growing brain spots. (Criz, don’t get me wrong, you were great for those 29-months!)
Now, it is time to eat enormous amounts of grapefruit during this drug-hiatus!
