Still here...

 ...just not very interested right now.

Surgery on her scalp done and healing well, still
waiting on biopsy results.
Pulmonary testing done, results (as much as I can decipher)
don't appear to be of serious concern.
Next meeting with oncologist might clarify what's ahead.
So much is a waiting game.

Enjoy what ya got while ya got it, right?

That includes friends like all of you.

Condensed version...

 Lots of doctor visits. Lots of tests.

They're stopping all her chemo meds temporarily
because tests are showing signs of heart failure
and pulmonary hypertension. They're adding
some meds to help combat those issues and give
her heart and lungs a chance to re-gain some strength
before going back to chemo.

The good thing is that she says she feels fine.

She goes next week to have the growth on her scalp removed.
We had to postpone the original surgery because all
the new doctors she's seeing said she could only have the
procedure under local anesthetic and the surgeon was
planning on knocking her out. Because of her heart and
lung issues, doing that could be "catastrophic".
The week after that she is scheduled for an entire day of more tests.

I try not to think too much, just take things one day at a time.
Sometimes that works, sometimes not so much.
