She still has her wit and incisive mind, even if it only emerges sporadically. She asked Kaplan how likely hair loss was, and he answered, 95%. She then asked if that meant it would leave a 5% patch or just sparse hairs. He laughed, and said nope you lose it all.

Meagan starts a new chemo Tuesday
At 11:45am tomorrow she has an appointment at the cancer treatment center. She will be on Abraxane. The total time she is in will be a couple hours. Total IV infusion time is about 45 minutes. Expected side effects: fatigue (on top of what she is feeling from meds and radiation), hair loss, possible nausea, possible tingling fingers, likely no chemo brain.
