Biopsy complete

The biopsy went by without any problems. I was more awake than any other biopsy or other procedures I've had with Versed/Fentonil. Thus, I watched the whole thing as he guided the needle into my chest. Very weird.

We'll discuss results at a meeting with my new oncologist, Dr. Chen, on Thursday.

Monday through Wednesday, Christine will be getting an IV treatment for migraine at home. It is supposed to work well for those who have been stuck in a constant migraine. It is typically inpatient, which is why they have tried many other things first. But it can be administered at home with a little training from the home health care nurse.

Christine and I are taking a weekend away, so I'm keeping this brief.
