Trudy did not even open her eyes when I approached. I think she has gotten used to all the attention and does not regret her choice. I bet she will be back next year to build another nest, next to the Jimmy Fund Building on Binney St. According to our calculations the eggs will hatch next week. I hope it happens on the 2nd of June when I return to DFCI. I MUST take a photo of Trudy and the poults (yes, that's how you call the young turkeys) leaving.
Next week will also be an important one for me. I will have a CT scan to find out if pi-3 kinase is working. We (Dr. Maya, Dr. Morgan and me) suspect that it is not. All indicates that the tumors have grown quite a bit. Dr. Bertagnolli, my surgeon, will also be looking at the scans... aghhhhhhh
By the way, my lips are back to normal. I skipped a few doses and then resumed taking the GDC-0941 pills. Most likely the drug did not cause the dryness and cuts since it did not happen again.
