The CT scan was unremarkable, but Nelson’s liver function lab values and tumor markers continue to rise. “Sort of” good news was the response of one of my friends when I described the situation. Nelson could not receive chemo again today because of his lab values, and more physician consults are in our near future. Not exactly the holiday gift we were hoping for, but “The Emperor of All Maladies” is in charge. It seems as though a glass of wine at the end of the day is more fitting for the precarious nature of this holiday season than my usual “shoe xanax.” The SC hopes this doesn’t suggest decompensation!
