Another Fork in the Road

Hello, everyone. A quick update:

Since the stem cell transplant yielded only 'mixed' results (perhaps a bit better than the outright flunking described in my last post), we are in the midst of planning next steps. Back to Houston for a one-day flying trip yesterday, and a pow-wow with my Austin doctor this morning. The rollercoaster ride continues. Trite, but true.

I may be staying with hormone therapy, which might still offer some benefit. Maybe, maybe could do this with a targeted therapy drug now in trial for use with breast cancer.

(Am I a wo-man or a mouse? That is the question.)

And then there's chemo....and then there's the need for a better summer with the kids this year vs. last year's, shall we say, medically focused time.
