Great News!!

I was notified today that I have finally been approved to start the study/test drug for my lung cancer.  This was a great finish to about 3 weeks of frustration just waiting for final approval. 

Apparently, some of the tests done previously are now "out of the window" - meaning that I need to have the tests again.  So...tomorrow I go in for blood and other tests and a new chest CT.  Per Debb (RN), they are trying to get me going on the drug on Thursday.  We'll see...  I have waited so long that I won't be surprised if they can't get me going until Friday or even Monday.

Most importantly, I am pretty sure that they now have all the necessary approvals.  So...here we go...
