Day 4

What a difference a day can make. Sheila’s feeling much better, and although she’s still slightly slurring her speech as a result of the painkillers, she’s pretty upbeat.

We talked and decided that we can’t wait for the MD Anderson trial, so assuming USC has everything they need to give us the green light, we’re going to go with them.  Doing so shouldn’t preclude us from going to MDA in the future if the Battle trial is still open. Or they may have something else at that point. It’s not an easy decision, because we think the MDA trial is actually the better one for Sheila, but we can’t afford to wait another two week to start with them. Plus, Dr. B is on vacation for another week, so we don’t have the opportunity to run any of this by her. Bad timing, but she needs her vacations too.

They’re weaning Sheila off the IV pain meds today to pills with the hope that the pills will do the trick and she can get out of the hospital tomorrow. If that’s the case then we’ll hopefully get started at USC later this week.
