I had an MRI of my head at Homolka on Wednesday. This is the worst slide of over a hundred, so comparable to the others already posted:
This is one of very few slides where you (or any other untrained eye, like myself) can even tell that I ever had an operation. Of course, I’ll have to wait until my consultation with Dr. Klener on Tuesday for the official analysis, but it looks good to me: no obvious baseballs, grapefruit or watermelon in any of the slides and the swelling has unswollen.
I’m meeting a Chinese doctor who practices Chinese medicine, of all things, on Monday afternoon. We’ll see what he has to say. I have a CT scan of my chest next Friday (the 16th), which should reveal any progress or regress of my remaining seven tumors. This will decide whether or not I will have a fourth chemo cycle, although I have no idea what the deciding criteria are.
On the whole, I’m feeling very well despite the time-consuming responsibilities and obligations of mikeFEST!™ (already in progress). I had a great week with Christine and am really glad she made it out. Between chemo, entertaining a house guest, and running a 12-day festival, I haven’t had much time to write. Thanks again for your comments, advice, and most of all your presents... uh, I mean presence ;-) Here's a picture of Christine in the hospital:
