[cancer] Off to the doctor

I have two appointments today. One with a liver surgeon, the other with an oncologist. These are at UCSF in San Francisco, pursuant to formalizing the second opinion regarding my metastatic cancer and the associated treatment plan. I'll also be getting the results of Monday's CT scan.

Neither calendula_witch nor I slept any kind of decently this past night. Stress has been disrupting my sleep cycle for about two weeks, and we won't even talk about what it does to my lower GI.

Next Monday is the appointment with my oncologist at OHSU, my "home" hospital. That's when I expect the chemo to be prescribed and scheduled, unless something unusual and unexpected arises out of today's consultations.
