The trial has begun! I feel much satisfaction knowing that I’m on a drug that has the potential to work in both body and brain. Will it work in mine? Yes! How long? Forever!
I’m pretty certain my expectations are a tad high. I’m fine with that. Isn’t there some kind of saying about shooting for the moon and accepting landing on a star? That’s what I’m doing.
BTW my nails are this great purple/grey color…it’s hard to see. 🙂
Enjoy your week G!
now that you mention it – i see the thumb 🙂
Best wishes, Kim! (I’m Michael’s mom)
Just so you know…You’re Michael is fantastic!
That is wonderful Kim!!!!!
It really is!
Great to hear! What are side effects like? I hope the drug is easy on you and tough on the cancer.
Best of luck!
I’m holding out a week before I make any bold (aka: public) statements about my side effects. I hate eating my own words…or worse, throwing them up. 🙂
Kim, watching how you do and hope things go well. We are all in this together. In fact, I recently had coffee from someone visiting San Diego from Portland. He is in the same boat as all of us. You may want to hook up (no, not that way :0) with him. Here is his blog: http://dannscancerchronicles.blogspot.com/

Thanks for commenting and passing along the info.
Also, I’m going to read your blog tomorrow! Care if I add a link to it on my links page?
Kim, please feel free to share and add a link. The more exposure we all get for our challenges, the better.
Thanks. Take care.
Hey Kim – sending out a big shout out to you!! Let’s hear it for Chugai!! From what I’ve heard you will have more energy than you did on Xalkori. I expect great things for you on this. Fingers crossed, mom will start the same trial in a couple of weeks.
Chugai, Roche, Genetech who ever they are! The whole selling drugs to different companies is so confusing!
I wish your mom well on this new drug. 🙂
Best hopes for a great response, Kim!
Thank you Janet. 🙂
