Update 30: November 12

Melody Raines

It's Monday and I didn't get chemo today. I'm taking a break for a few weeks. Last week I had my regularly scheduled MUGA--snappy name for a heart test. This test measures my ejection fraction (Ef), the ratio of blood going into my heart to blood coming out of it. Every three months, a nurse injects a radioactive dye into my arm before I take a ten-minute nap under a high-tech camera. In my February MUGA nap, I had an Ef of 61%. In my next two naps, I had an Ef of 54%. Last week I had an Ef of 49%. I don't know what a passing score is, but I failed my heart test. I'll take another one on November 29. If I pass it, I'll start chemo again in December. For now, I'm taking a lot of naps.
 
Thanks for sticking with me.
