So, here’s a surprise, the spine MRI was clear. I hardly believe it, I’m a mix of pleased and skeptical. Not sure if a lumbar puncture is next or we are moving on as no or unconfirmed lepto. Radiation is an option but riskier due to some overlap with previously treated spots and a switch to Enhertu seems almost certain but no official word yet.

In other news, today is national eat whatever you want day. I’m considering the possibilities. DH wants a cheesecake/pecan pie sandwich (he’s diabetic, so no chance).

I feel like a lurker but hope to join the Zoom family soon now that I am no longer working. I just need to test my system (no work computer now) and get through the flurry of appointments as we treat new bone mets in my c-spine/thoracic spine that are behaving badly.

Mae, so pleased with the clear MRI. Hooray!
