I keep forgetting to mention our upcoming trip to the Mayo Clinic. I don't like it when The Adventures of Cancer Girl has to go back to being all about cancer. I just watched an episode of House where Hugh Laurie was faking a deadly brain tumor so he could get his hands on some good drugs. Instead of thinking Dr. House was evil, I thought, "Wow, that would be the greatest thing EVER! I'd love to be able to say, 'Ha! You all thought I had a horrible disease, but I was only FAKING! I TOTALLY don't have cancer! HA! HA! HA!'"
Wouldn't that be cool? All those trips to "the Mayo Clinic"? They were really to Vegas. That jug of "pee" I hauled everywhere I went? It was liquor.
We leave on Sunday (WCB will be with my parents, or as she calls them, Me-Ma and Be-Pa). I get blood drawn and turn in the Pee Pod first thing Monday morning, and then we meet with Dr. H in the afternoon. Hopefully we'll be able to leave right after that and be back Monday night. I don't expect any horrible news, because I feel really good, but you never know.
Speaking of the Mayo Clinic, here's a link to some really cool news. Mayo just opened a clinical trial for myeloma patients using ... the measles virus. Cooooooool.
