I did a blood test yesterday and my hemoglobin is 12.4

twelve point four

no wonder I have been feeling so good (and away from the computer). I'll start my trial, one of the Genentech studies, next Wednesday.

And I also gained weight, I am 40 kilos (almost 90 pounds).

Which of the studies are you trying? Are they both phase 1?

I haven't been 90lbs since the 6th grade :-P

We recently created a sarcoma online networking group since sarcomas are so rare. The goal is to build up a network for patients, families, friends, researchers, doctors, etc that is like a private Facebook and information sharing group for sarcoma.

If you'd like to check it out it is

FYI - It is totally free and is not some kind of money making scam. Those of us who built it are involved with the Rein in Sarcoma foundation.

Kathy I am starting GDC-0941, the PI3-kinase one. I did not write about it yet because I don't want to jinx it.
