Diary Entry


After 6 months of “partial remission,” and almost five years of “progression-free survival,” I’ve learned just how partial “partial remission” can be. One of the several pulmonary nodules from the original cancer diagnosis, the “spiculated” one, has become a “hot” spot. Surgery (robotic) to remove the lesion is scheduled for January 18 at NYU hospital. After that, who knows what the story will be? I’m sad not to be going to the women’s march in D.C. That story is scary enough.
