H had a scan on Monday which shows progression in her lungs and a new growth on her liver.  Liver metastases are the cause of death in many cancer patients, but H is not very concerned because she thinks the lung mets are more threatening (this is not comforting).  Her consultant I think was more troubled by it, but didn't want to argue with H.

On Wednesday H started on daily Pazopanib tablets.  There's a reasonable hope that the drug will slow down the disease for a few months.

She's spent a lot of time asleep in the last couple of weeks.  This is the effect in some combination of the morphine, chronic paclitaxel poisoning, and the disease.  We don't know whether pazopanib will be better than paclitaxel in this respect.
