On our way back from Dr. G. My blood counts continue to look good. Platelets all the way up to 97.
We discussed hitting the disease with maintenance earlier than the 100 day mark which is the norm. Today is day 50.
He hit me with a few options including a clinical trial at Penn which could be promising. There is a new drug called an HDAC inhibitor.
So far, he has not been able to amend the Penn T Cell trial. The board said no to his request. I am not strong enough anyway to do it now and they have fulfilled their requirement. The trial starts up again in June I think so we will see what happens.
We will see where my myeloma markers are when they come back in a few days and I also want to speak with Dr. J (and Dr. Jeff) before making a decision on which route to go. We will probably decide sometime next week.
One more thing … I drove for the first time since Thanksgiving maybe? I drove Helene into town to her favorite place … Starbucks!
