We are so blessed to have such an amazing team of doctors, Dr Wolchok, Dr Moryl and Dr Postow at Memorial Sloan Kettering working to make Laura comfortable and ease her distress. Her meteorically fast tumors have out-paced lesser doctors ability to catch up with her new symptoms. Today she has massive weakness in her legs (the physio-therapy team brought in a walker for her), her hugely swollen belly is pushing up on her lungs and she is more agitated than before. The doctors are going to try and drain her belly a little today. And the really good news is she is pain-free and nausea-free for the first time in a long time and that is a huge relief.
We’ve been so lucky to have so many angels around us. Not just Laura’s wonderful family of relatives and friends, but recent acquaintances who’ve taken it upon themselves to help us out. Among the notables are Nita Vyas at Proskauer, the legal team at NYLAG, Dr Shah, Dr Golden, Stephen Rudin and Donna and Ben Rosen. There aren’t words to thank you all enough.
