Hi Lori and friends...Thanks so much for asking about me and for all your prayers. It means so much to me...
I went on Thursday Feb 14th to start the study. In order to be part of the study I had to have a physical,
Blood work, an EKG, CAT scan, and a Bone scan. I met with my Onc first and got some bad news. The cancer
has spread to my lungs and my Lymph nodes. I was really shocked...and surprised. I started the study as
planned. The study Onc & my regular Onc said that the study drugs could help the lungs and lymph nodes
in addition to the bones. So we are going to try that for 2 months and redo the tests to see if there
is any improvement. If not we will try something different.
With this treatment I get an infusion every 2 weeks and I take a chemo pill every day. So far the side
affects havent been too bad...headache, nausea, diahrea and some aches and pains. Hopefully it
wont get any worse.
I will ask for your continued thoughts and prayers....
Love and hugs,
Sometimes it is a slender thread, Sometimes a strong,
stout rope; She clings to one end, I the other;
She calls it friendship; I call it hope....
