studying up

Tomorrow morning, we get up at 5AM again, as we did last Friday, to head over to NCI for Mom's 9AM appointment with Dr. Fine and/or his team. Today, I'll be reading up on the second-line techniques I've learned about, and if Dr. Fine doesn't mention them himself, I'll bring them up during the consultation. The ideal treatment(s) will be painless and minimally invasive, if they involve surgery at all. I'm mentally prepared to hear that, given the cancer's progress, surgery will not be an option. However, if something like that fiber-optic laser surgery is possible, I'll welcome its inclusion in our list of viable options.

UPDATE, 2:49PM: This is not welcome news.
