My Jeff’s brain looks better.
It appears cancer has spread to Jeff’s lungs. He has fluid and inflammation in his lungs which is likely being caused by the ducts that drain by themselves being clogged by cancer.
Jeff’s bone mets are significantly worse.
Jeff is no longer responding to treatment, the Zytiga/Prednisone.
Dr. Kwon called in Dr. Orme, Jeff’s medical oncologist, and together they were trying to come up with a “chemo cocktail”, but sounds like they are going to treat as a neuroendocrine cancer and Jeff will start Carboplatin chemotherapy.
PSA is too high at 65.4.
In the PET scan bones aren’t supposed to show up. Jeff’s entire skeleton basically showed up. The bone mets are everywhere.
Jeff will have radiation on his knees which may or may not help with his chronic mobility issues and leg weakness.
Last round for brain radiation is this afternoon.
I recently posted that my poor Jeff lost his beloved puppy, Mattie, to pneumonia. Mattie needed to gain her little wings so when Jeff gains his, she’ll be there to walk the heavens with him.
Meanwhile, our daughter managed to find an available 16 week old, female, English Bulldog. We went and picked up Maggie and she’s already with Jeff. Maggie has helped fill the gaping hole in Jeff’s heart.
