Subject: [cancer] Second opinion time
Security: Public
Tags:cancer, health, personal
Many phone calls today. Case management nurse at the cancer services unit of my carrier. UCSF cancer center to seek the appointment for the second opinion. My doctor's practice at OHSU to have medical records and relevant associated data released to UCSF. I won't know for up to two weeks what happens next (presumably an appointment in San Francisco). But the second opinion is fully in train.

Also, spoke to both my hair stylist and my dentist yesterday about what would happen if I did have a chemo course. Contingency plans are being made.

You don't know me, but I just wanted to say that I read all these posts, Jay. Am thinking all good thoughts for you in the days to come. I know it's so tough to figure all this stuff out.

If chemo has to happen and it appears to be affecting your hair, braid it up tight and cut it off. Store it somewhere B will find it and do something creative with it. Pam eventually just got a buzz cut and pretended to be a Marine. She hollered and I smacked `em.

Or you could donate the braid to Locks of Love. A hairpiece from one fighter to another would be awesome.

Except my hair has been colored. Don't they require completely natural hair?

No idea. It was just the first thing I thought of. I'm sure the site has details. Hm...

You've got my best wishes for this to fizzle into nothing.

You're being so smart about all this, Jay. I know you're freaked, but you're handling it so well. You're gonna kick this f*cker in its ass.
