Janet B Posted April 4, 2013 Share Posted April 4, 2013 Where has everyone been? Hope you are all off having fun and enjoying the slooow arrival of spring! I have been on a cancer whirlwind. Went to Boston on Monday to sign the clinical trial consent and set up all my pretrial testing, only to come home and get a call that the trial at my cancer center had an opening for me. Big decisions to be made, soul searching, pros and cons lists, multiple emails. I am 99% sure I am going to go ahead and do the trial at Yale instead of Boston. They are very similar, both "second generation Tarceva", so the decision really lies with staying with my oncologist of 6 years and not having to travel back and forth to Boston several times a month. (Of course I am also feeling very bad about backing out of a trial I had assured the Dr. I would be in.). Sometimes with treatment you just have to cross your fingers and say a prayer. Today's big excitement was Barker, my bird, got loose! I must say, the wing clipping the pet store gave him did NOTHING! Boy can my bird fly! I have been keeping his cage open when I am in the room to try to help tame him ( he is still afraid of me getting anywhere closer than about an inch away ). I had recorded him chirping on my iPad, and without thinking, I played it, he totally freaked out and flew out of the cage. he flew all around the downstairs and then disappeared for about an hour. I finally found him behind the curtains in the dining room, but he took off again. After a while he got stuck behind the couch and I managed to grab him. he can bite very very hard by the way! I think we set taming back about a month! the best part was Sean, my Golden Retriever, never even got up. He just watched from his bed as if birds fly about our house all the time. barker is sleeping now, he had a big day! Off to clean - my best friend of 43 years is coming for the weekend! I haven't seen her in 5 years as she lives in California. Have a wonderful day! Janet Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
