Phase II

Andrew had his biopsy last Friday at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center  (MSK, for short).  Everything went very well, no problems, although he does have a rather large incision on his neck -- yikes!  He's been feeling pretty good lately, considering.  Just a bit tired, but with this massive heat wave coming through, we're all tired!

The surgeon told us the biopsy results would take 7-10 days to come back, but we just heard from MSK that they want us to come in tomorrow for an appt. with Dr. Z.  I'm glad -- i asked if he could expedite things, and obviously he could.  So tomorrow we get to find out what the second half of this madness will look like.  I forgot to mention that Dr Z gave Andrew another bone marrow biopsy on our first visit (his favorite!), so we'll get those results, plus the results from the new node.  Hopefully Dr. Z will now know which chemo cocktail is most likely to put this sucker in remission.  Should be a busy few months -- keep your fingers crossed for us!  :)
