Journal entry by Meghan McGinnis

It’s official. I am giving up cancer for lent. It’s going to happen. I have less than 40 days so I better get started.

We traveled to Duke today, leaving bright and early me and Brittany hit the road and met mom around 9:30 to get the day started. I got to lay eyes on Harold’s spawn today and man it was one ugly sight. Unfortunately it had progressed to a tumor 4cm x 4cm and pressing on my kidney which in turn is causing it not to work properly and why the lymphedema and other swelling we thought we had tackled 3 weeks ago have come back. Also we took me off the Xeloda pill and have switched me back to the takehome pump   chemo that I will have for 40 hours to see how I tolerate the liquid chemo. Nausea and zero appetite were not what my doctor wanted to hear so he thinks this will be much easier on me. He also remains confident thought we can get ahead of this and be able to maintain a somewhat healthy life!

Short and quick update but after a 11 hour day the bed is calling ❤️
