No news till Wednesday

We just got back from meeting our new oncologist, Shuchi Pandya, a woman who seemed competent and personable, and has one of the qualities I admire in our previous oncologist, Roger Lange: not seeming pressed for time, no matter how many questions you ask. (We have been told that Dr. Lange, who we have been seeing since 1996, is on indefinite personal leave for a health problem. Good luck to him.)

The biopsy is not back yet, but Dr. Pandya expects it Wednesday for a meeting a group of doctors (including the surgeon who removed Deb's GIST in 2003, and another surgeon who specializes in liver surgery) is having at noon. We expect to hear from Dr. Pandya late Wednesday afternoon.
