Accepted into a clinical trial.

Having now had 5 different chemo therapies fail and watched my numbers round-trip to where they were almost three years ago, my docs have recommended a clinical trial. Got the news that I was accepted today (been doing tests for a week) so I start Tuesday. Seems a little surreal and somewhat scary since I thought we had a bit more of a pipeline to go through before getting into stuff like this. Ah well — the things you do and put up with to stick around a bit longer for your kiddo.

Can’t help wishing this trial was testing the efficacy of Pomalidomide with cheesecake and a latte instead, tho’.

Trial Information for ACY-241.

Trying to navigate this goddamn disease as best I can while enjoying what time I have left via those relationships, friends, the UFC, gaming, MMJ, diving and helping teach it before this all went down as a PADI Assistant Instructor and a Dive Guide at the Denver Aquarium (well, before my white blood cell count went to shit thanks to the chemo/disease).
