here are the results in a nutshell ---

the tumors have stayed essentially the same so i am going on the second drug starting today.

i will do bloodwork on the 17th to see if my liver is maintaining the drugs. if it is, i have my next treatment on the 23rd. if not, i go on steroids and all treatment stops.

once my liver rebounds, i would go back on the treatment i have been on which for some patients has maintained tumors for 2-4 years.

so i am thankful that the tumors have not grown, that is definitely good news.

i would be lying to say that i am not disappointed this treatment hasn't shrunk the tumors, and i am not looking forward to going on the second drug.

but that is where we are so that is what i will do.

thanks for all the love and good thoughts and mojo.

anywhere i fight, you fight.

and we definitely have more fighting to do.


  1. I've been thinking of you all day. I'm sorry it wasn't better news. ((Hugs))

  2. You continue to amaze us with your fight and strength. We wish the news was better but grateful for nothing worse. Love and prayers staying with you. xoxo
