one thing Dad found out

Dad found out, after speaking with the nurse who works with Dr. Boockvar at New York Presbyterian/Weill Cornell, that "one cycle" of Avastin equals two infusions. Earlier, I had written that Mom might be ineligible for the intra-arterial Avastin trial because she's already had so many infusions of Avastin. Happily, this turns out not to be true. She'll have had a total of seven or eight infusions by December 17; for six cycles, she'd have to receive twelve infusions. In other words: if she's ineligible for the trial, it won't be because of the Avastin she's already taken.
