She was diagnosed with lymphona a few months post-tx. The cancer rate in tx patients does tend to be higher, due to the fact that we are really messing with our immune systems (and another reason why Karen was--is!--so sunscreen-centric!). It's not uncommon.
She had one round of chemo, but that didn't do the trick. So now it's on to round two, which is nastier stuff.
Please pray that she gets better!
And with my own tx....on Monday the three year tests (some of them) begin. An ECHO with cardiology, a visit w/ my endocrinologist, Dr. Hardin, and a visit with the Pulm Rehab people!
