Round Two

I’m back in Houston for my second round of PRRT. I flew in this afternoon and had an MRI. I’ll get the results of the MRI in the next day or two which may give me an early indication of how effective this therapy is after only the first of four treatments. The tech was nice enough to leave my IV in from the MRI so hopefully I’ll have one less needle-stick in the morning.

Tomorrow is the actual infusion of the radioactive therapy along with the amino acids to protect my kidneys. It’s the exact same process as last time, with follow-up scans on Thursday and Friday, then flying back home Saturday. Because this is a much shorter trip Kathy stayed home to help save some money. I’ll be in the treatment room all day tomorrow with one of the other patients I met on my first trip. We ran into each other at the hotel, and will have lots to talk about as we sit there for five hours.

Thankfully Houston is a little cooler (still about 90) and a lot less humid than it was in August. My interesting travel story is that the TSA opened my suitcase to inspect it, I guess in San Jose, then LOCKED it shut with the built-in lock. I haven’t ever carried that key, so I had to get a locksmith to open my suitcase for me here in Houston. I’ll be sure to find the key and keep it with me from now on.

I’ll post more after my therapy. Take care.
