Hi all:

Basketcase wife checking in. Charlie had his second of seven treatments of erbitux and taxotere today. It went well. Doc. said his blood work looked pretty darn good. Checked with gastro on way out as his appetite is not great right now and he gave him another prescription of something to take witht he nexium. Also, onc. said he didn't think the lump on his back was as tall as before and when Charlie asked him about the end of the 7 weeks what then, he said if we're getting a good response we do another round of 7 weeks. So all in all it was a great day. Thanks for the prayers and continued ones and we remember all of y'all in ours daily.

Jan and Charlie
