Today was kind of a trip. I went in for all of my pre-treatment scans. An ultrasound of the liver showed the tumors to be somewhat small in size and not blocking any of my bile ducts. I’m assuming that “small” and “not blocking” are the operative words. Then I went for a Muga Scan (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MUGA_scan) that entailed taking a small amount of my own blood, infusing it with radioactive material (no flux capacitor this time) and then re-infused the blood into my system. The goal was to check heart function and timing. It was pretty interesting.
Lunch today came from Philippe’s restaurant in L.A. (http://www.philippes.com/). The place is amazing!!! It’s been in business over 100 years and has amazing french dip sandwiches. Did I mention we ate there yesterday, too?
