I was informed yesterday by phone that I do not test for either the BRCA 1 or 2 gene for cancer.
That is good news, as my risk for ovarian cancer is not high and my kid does not have a higher risk for cancer than the general population.
Last Thursday I got my last round of Big Red with Acetone. I have felt OK, not insanely great. Mostly, I am frustrated at meal time (stomach growls, but food offers no comfort or flavor) and wine tastes like nothing at all.
My SXSW week began immediately after this treatment, and I have cut way back on my activities this year, skipping parties and attending no film screenings, except for one. I am conserving my energy for tonight, because I will be in a (we hope) full night club selling raffle tickets for a guitar and t-shirts to raise money for Girls Rock Camp Austin. I will wear the black bob, I think.
I actually have a full music agenda, which you can look at here. Not that my anemic self can last all night, but I have an agenda anyway.
