Slow Death

My appointment at Memorial Cancer Clinic went well. Dax, John, Sharon and the others were their usual friendly and caring selves. No white coats or excessive formality, which makes it easier to relax.


It looks like I’m responding well to the drug regime. I’ll be getting a PET scan in a few weeks to check progress. No CRP test is necessary because my other cancer markers are looking good since I started chemo (e.g. my LDH is back to normal). Round four is tomorrow.


My goal in all this ill treatment is good health, which as Kinky Friedman points out, “is merely the slowest possible rate at which to die.”

  1. Great news!! I like the “slow death” quote. Isn’t that what we’re all aiming for? You and Susan are in our prayers.
