Quick Update On The Cancer Fight

My wife is doing well with her therapy. She finished the radiation portion of her clinical trial a little while ago and has her last chemo infusion in about 10 days. The side-effects have been quite mild (at least relative to our expectations), but they could still flare up after the next infusion.

In the meantime, her PT is going reasonably well. Her lymphedema has been under good control (less than 2% in the arm) and her range of motion is quite good.

After the last treatment it'll shift to the "watchful waiting" portion ... a part that I suspect may be quite challenging in its own right (the "doing something" aspect of radiation and chemo offers its own type of comfort).
