The Stacey Report

November 28, 2006: Catching up with Stacey’s hair

Posted in Uncategorized by ohthatdeb on November 28, 2006

OK, first of all, STOP VOTING! I know, I did leave that there for a while, and I’m glad you’re all paying attention, but various election boards have reported small but persistent clusters of late voters and they’ve traced them back to this site. It’s very flattering, I must say, but these people keep calling me and, really, you gotta knock it off.

Next, we must report that Stacey’s hair is looking quite lovely, growing in thicker by the day (we have good hair genes in this family, I must admit.)

Following up on various tests, scans, and other procedures:

  1. The surgical follow-up mammogram was clear: nothing exciting there (which is good.)
  2. Thyroid: the scans for the thyroid were clear, except for some sort of goiter that is not cancerous and is not a cause for concern. Stacey was not exactly clear on all the details: it’s not cancer. That’s the important thing. She’s going to ask TFDB about it again at the next appointment.
  3. On December 4th, Stacey has an appointment with a dermatologist to check out the place on her back that “lit up” in the PET/CT scans.
  4. Also on December 4th, she will have an echocardiogram to check out her heart function. The hope is that it is back up to a level where she can go back on the Herceptin. Until then, she has been getting just the Zometa (bone glue) but not the Herceptin (hormone decoy suff). Fingers crossed on that one.

    Hi there,

    Thanks for the update–I was getting quite concerned about the continuing exhortation to vote. Especially as I still can’t.

    Happy Thanksgiving to all of you east coasters.

    Yay! Good news indeed!!! Looking forward to the Dec 4 update and sending positive mojo over the fence. (As if Stacey needed any more.) And, btw, as a neighbor, I can report on the hair – it IS coming in nicely and is quite hip. Maybe we should all go short?
