My Bags are packed I'm ready to go...Cause I'm leaving on A Jet Plane, don't know when I'll be back again ---- O Baby I hate to goooooooooooooooooo!!! OK OK so, I'm off on my next big adventure to NCI = National Cancer Institute. I start my full treatment this time around....funners??? This should be what my subsequent trips should be like. I'll fly out to NCI on a Sunday see the DR and have treatment on Monday and Tuesday then fly home on the Wednesday. I will receive two treatments here locally. so my cycle will be three weeks of treatment and one week of rest.

There's no place like home!! There's no place like home!!

Well I'm home again. I was accepted into the Study group and I was randomized to get the actual Vaccine that they are working on. (Nice thing about being in the 2nd or 3rd round of the study---you KNOW what you are getting and there is no placebo involved).

Wednestday 02 June 2010 NCI Update

Well the testing is all done and the results are back----I've been accepted into the Study program-------and was Randomized (I call itthe coin toss) to the actual drug that they are "studying". THE VACCINE!!! So on Friday I get my first dose of the Study drug then I return in three weeks on the 28 June 2010 for the next dose of it. From then on I'll be only flying out here once every four weeks for a check-up to see how I'm doing and start the next cycle...the weather here is HOT!!!!!! Since they have Roxanne's name she was the one that got booked for the next flight out.

Roxanne has been a big help get me to the various parts of the hospital to the appointed places on time and actually hearing stuff that I didn't always hear correctly.

Keep-Her has been a real champ thru it all. just lays there and snoozes between stops. Lots of people have enjoyed seeing her at the clinic.

Jann the very HOT n TIRED Overcomer
