Good Night

Taking the clinical trial drugs at 10:00PM is so much more convenient that taking them at 10:00AM. I don't have to drag them back and forth to work in an insulated ice pack, which is nice. They can just stay in the fridge at home.

Perhaps more importantly, when I get to work, I can have a cup of coffee to jumpstart my mental processes. When I was taking the pills at 10:00AM, I couldn't have anything but water. Water doesn't jumpstart anything except maybe a trip to the rest room.

Tomorrow I am having a CT Scan. We'll see how well the clinical trial drug is working.

I also got a letter from UNC asking me to come back for a followup after my CyberKnife radiation surgery. I made an appointment to see Dr Morris at the end of this month. I am looking forward to telling him about how the tumor in the psoas shrank so significantly and then later how my psoas tightened up so that I could not start up straight.
