On Monday, Lisa visited her daycare for a little while and setup a time to visit again on Tuesday. I dropped her off at 10:30 and planned to let her stay for just a couple hours or up until nap time. When the time came for me to pick her up she wanted to stay and nap and then continue to play with her ol' friends. Maranda and I picked her up at 3:40 PM. She had a lot of fun, she said, and would like to go back again.
Lisa's next treatment is another CAT and PET scan scheduled for Friday, 1/16. Those images will help direct the next steps. If the cancer is 'stable' then we'll go straight into the vaccine study followed by bone marrow transplant. If the disease is progressive then she'll continue chemotherapy as she waits for an opportunity to enter into the MIBG BMT study. Let's hope for the former.
Since Lisa's apheresis on Friday, where her own marrow was collected and those tubes were removed from her leg, she has been remarkably more energetic and hungry. What a difference. It's really nice to see her like this
