We meet with Kaplan at 3 today. She was scheduled to start chemo, but wants to wait until tomorrow. He's fine with that. She wants to talk about what to expect from a side effect perspective. She is feeling particularly beat up and isn't anxious at all to start. Understandable. She's still feeling quite mentally foggy, is very tired, and pretty upset about the weight gain from the steroids. This is such a long haul, with unrelenting occurrences of tumors and related debilitating treatments - and it's really getting to her. She knows there is no choice but to move forward with treatments but I can tell the difference in her mental outlook. Thank goodness she has a therapist visit this morning.
