This week's schedule

After a week off from Chemo, I start Cycle Two tomorrow. Tuesday and Friday are my treatment days this week. We'll also meet with my doctor, Dr Phan (who we really like), tomorrow to review the results of my latest blood work.  A key marker he's looking at is kidney function. Improved kidney function means that the chemo is working.  Last time we met with him, my kidneys showed some improvement. So chemo is working.

We also meet with the kidney doctor on Friday. Just a follow up, to also review my labs.  Pretty straight forward.

Also, looking ahead, I have a consultation appointment on June 6 at the City of Hope. This is to discuss undergoing a bone marrow transplant process. But I wouldn't be getting bone marrow from a donor. They take my marrow out, clean it, and put it back.
