Thanks everyone! New update. My Oncologist really wants to do another cycle of chemo before starting radiation. She's hopeful that will help arrest the spread of the cancer from my neck to my knees. So, the current plan is that I will do chemo this morning at 8 am as was originally scheduled. I will then go for a radiation consult this afternoon.
In 7 to 10 days after chemo, they want to do a series of radiation on my lower spine first to alleviate the pain there as it is the major source of breakthrough pain. They believe that should only take a few radiation treatments to accomplish. They will then move on to radiating rhe spots in my brain. They'll do new scans to check on how this is working before determining what course(s) of action to take next.
Thanks all for your support!
I'm lucky enough to live where there are a ton of concert venues. I go to the big arenas in Philadelphia, and Camden, sometimes to Madison Square Garden or Radio City in NY, and the arena in DC, as well as a few clubs in Philadelphia and the Stone Pony in Asbury Park (where Springsteen got his start). I get email alerts from Ticketmaster and Live Nation, plus some of the clubs, and just mark my calendar for when the tickets go on sale.
There are some bands I will see every chance I get, while others I enjoyed seeing once but found they didn't blow me away enough to go see again. I'm actually flying to Chicago in early December to see VNV Nation, who I saw a few years ago and have been waiting to see again--they've mostly been touring in Europe. They are playing in Philadelphia, but in November when I will be out of the country. I had some rewards miles so the trip isn't costing much, and it's an excuse to make a short visit to Chicago.
I've got a couple of work friends, too, that I go to concerts with all over the country. One friend is in Minneapolis and the other is in DC, so we take turns going to concerts all three places. We also went together to see The Who in Denver a couple years ago.
