Well, had my second dose of Irinotecan, and lo! Seeing shrinkage of tumors! Getting radiation on the gum tumor, and that seems to be working as well. Happy happy joy joy...

Jerry,

It is good to hear that the new chemo regimen is working. Also I hope that the radiation is reducing the pain in your jaw. Thanks for the update. May the news continue to be good and the side effects be as minor as they can.

Best Regards,

HOORAY!!! We were wondering how things were going for you and so glad to read this news.

Hope that radiation knocks that tumor out the gum without causing you too much grief for it. You will remain in our prayers and thoughts - tear it up Dude!

Love you all, and your positiveness. Glad I have good news to share. And next week, I and my brother will be flying down to Tennessee to have a family reunion with my other brother and my two sisters. Bizarre. We all grew up in Washington State, and I'm the only one left here. The rest have gone "sproing"...
