    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): A new course of chemo has started. First it was the pre-surgery mix, then it was the no-surgical option mix (which did wonderful things for six months), now it's the next version. The doctor says he has three or four more tricks up his sleeve, if not more.

    Oh No (Cancer has spread/Metastasized): The scan after a five week break came back so-so in terms of facts, but very confusing. Some areas are incredibly better, some are the same as before, one is much worse, and there are new spots. How can it be better yet worse?

    Procedure or Surgery (Implant chemotherapy port): Now it's real. There's no removing this, just as there's no removing the cancer.

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): Nerve-based side effects are getting worse, numbness/tingling, will have to take a break and see if they reduce or not.

    Decision Point (Need to have dental work, treatment has to stop.): Had to take a break from active treatment so counts would recover enough to have a bad tooth pulled. It all went well.
