We went to the oncologist yesterday. He said "no treatment until after the holidays". He wants to make sure J's blood infections are completely cleared. Apparently whatever it was they extracted from J's pancreas was a complete anomaly. Most docs have rarely to never seen one like it, which makes prescribing treatment difficult, at best. So here we are, in the dark, again, and the discomfort level remains at orange. Not only that but Jordi's tumor markers are "elevated". And I don't know WTF a tumor marker is! So now I will have to go and Google it. The good news is Jordi's appetite has come back, full force, he's even drinking Ensure, which he disliked, at first. As the wise blogger guru says, "one day at a time".
