Understanding the enemy

‘When there is dust rising in a high column, it is the sign of chariots advancing; when the dust is low, and spread over a wide area, it betokens the approach of infantry. When it branches out in different directions, it shows that parties have been sent to collect firewood. A few clouds of dust moving to and fro signify that the army is encamping.’ Sun Tzu, The Art of War.

My enemy, despite heavy artillery (lorlatinib plus carboplatin and pemetrexed) continues to advance. Hence the need for another approach. On Tuesday I have yet another CT scan in preparation for the upcoming clinical trial–it will be interesting to see if the fact that I am feeling better is supported by radiographic evidence. Either way, I think it is time to surprise cancer, which has grown both in size and cockiness.

7.1 cm is not my friend. Nor is lymphangitic carcinomatosis.

  1. Yes,Linnea Surprise as Sun Tzu would suggest, is always a good option:
    “Open confrontation will trigger
    over-powering resistance. Thus the key
    to victory is the ability to use surprise tactics.”
    You have new weapons coming and the most amazing “General” leading the fight and…Your amazing focus and resolve and the love and support of many!

  2. Read Lao Tzu – xxx
