Maggie is back in Houston for her next treatment at MD Anderson. We met the volunteer pilot, Chris, at 7:15AM this morning at the Georgetown Airport. Nice guy. He wasn’t concerned at all about the weather which, as I drove away, was slightly breezy and not a drop of rain but very cloudy. This was his first mission as a Grace Flight pilot. How lucky is he, to get to share it with Maggie? I’m certain after this experience he’ll be a frequent flyer!
Maggie is feeling much better now from her Irish illness, as am I. She’s been taking the strong antibiotic Levaquin as a precaution since Saturday. Maybe it’s helped or not, but other than the obligatory post-illness hacks and coughs, she’s doing fine.
The schedule at MD Anderson is more of the same: blood tests, a very brief doctors visit, premeds (to prevent an infusion reaction), R1507 (the special sauce), then chemo. I’d expect her to finish up around 8PM and then head over to Dr. Lisa’s apartment to sleep the best she can before heading back to me tomorrow.
