yet another cancer update

So many sighs…

Okay here’s the deal:

The cancer has taken up residence in the linings of most of my organs. It’s in the lining of the heart, lungs, kidneys, liver, and all throughout the GI tract. Abraxane has failed, and so now we are on to a new treatment: Enhertu. Enhertu is kinda famous right now. It has been in the news a lot due to a really favorable trial in which Enhertu increased survival rates, and also showed regression of cancer in like 50% of the participants. It was also shown to help those with her-2 low breast cancer, which I have, and was just approved by the FDA on Friday as a treatment option. So I’m starting that on Thursday. The side effects sound kind of rough. I’m going to get heavy pre-meds, including steroids, which UGH, but if it helps with nausea then I’ll make it work.

I had to cancel our trip to Cancun at the end of the month to make the treatment schedule work. (Every three weeks).

That’s all for now. I’m tired and cranky. This is total bullshit.
