I have heard back from Dr. Gimelfarb. The cancer in my parotids and left adrenal gland is GONE! All that’s left is a little bit at the base of my left lung (about 18% of the original tumor). This is great news for being halfway through killing off all those fuckers. Apologies, but I do not have images of it. I forgot to ask for a disc yesterday. I will get one on Monday and share that with you while I’m at chemo.
Adrienne asked why I refer to the lead pig as such. That’s just what it’s called. I did find out that pig iron is crude iron that comes out of a smelting furnace, often to be poured into a mold or formed as a block. Such material is used to create shielding containers like our friend, lead pig.
And now you know.

Way to kill the fuckers Deb. And I personally think you should knit the pig a pig coozie cover for your next scan. I would do it for you but yeah…I go in straight lines. Period.
