the camel's nose under the tent

we are still awaiting the results of the super test which will compare the genetic fingerprints of my tumor to the tumors of 65,000 other women and indicate whether or not chemo would be appropriate.

i must be doing well though as the oncologist is clearly not worried--she, chad and i spent most of the meeting discussing her very bright ADD sixth-grader and where he should go to school ( we recommended The Field School).

however, chad did attempt to ask her questions about post-menopausal symptoms (due to the tamoxifen which will soak up any remaining estrogen my body tries to make) and the doctor and I both looked at him like the chair had spoken.

i know he was just trying to help, but he should know by now not to try to enter the pink tent.
