Ok so here I am at Stanford. Waiting for my oncologist with the news. This is my first scan results on the Votrient. Thinking about the Tom Petty song.. The waiting is the hardest part..

    So the rest of the story. I am off of the Votrient again. My liver Biliruben is high. So off of the drugs and get blood tests weekly. As my oncologist said it is good to kill my liver. Time for a drink. Ron

    Well, good news is that there

    Well, good news is that there is shrinkage (in this case), boo hoo on high billiruben but that is ok. You will take a little break and be back on schedule, at perhaps a lesser dose?  We are glad to hear it!  May this trend continue... all the best to you.. Lay off the beer!  Have the shot of whiskey instead! ;)

    I'm so happy to hear your

    I'm so happy to hear your scan results. Sorry about the bilirubin though. Hopefully a short break and you'll be back on track! My husband has his first ct scan since Votrient on the 29th - hoping he joins you in the shrinkage (that word makes me want to giggle!) club.

    Giggle away..!

    Thanks for the kind words and the laughter..!!  I was so happy to hear the shrinkage.. I was just hoping for stability.. but I read the report and all the bad stuff shruk.. and no new stuff showed up...  I was pumped...  Then I got the other news and I felt a bit dejected, but NOT down...  My Onc did not want to talk about what if today... instead she said, hey most likely go back on the Votrient at 200 mg and see how it goes..  I may ask to try the 400 mg though...   The other good part is the break will allow the other side effects to go away... In the end.. much better results than I hoped for.. and it sure could easily of been worse.!

    No beer for me until the IOM... Oh yes my next Onc appointment is the day before I jump on the airplane.. gotta love the irony in that...!!

    OK, so my next search will be to see if there is a better diet to help my Liver...

    Oh my I almost forgot..  I did this Parody on the Paul Simon song...  There must be.. 50 ways to love your liver...  :)

    Be Well All..!!!!!!!!

    Three dogs, liver, and cheese...

    There's these three dogs sitting at a bar, a chihuahua golden retriever, and a shepherd.

    A girl dog walks in, and said "The one who can use liver and cheese in a sentence and make me laugh I will marry."

    The golden retriever goes first. "I don't like liver and cheese."

    "Not clever enough."

    Then the shepherd goes next. "I like liver and cheese."

    "Not clever enough."

    Now the Chihuahua, "Oh liver her alone cheese mine!"

     

    WAY TO GO RON!!!

    You guys are a riot!

    Thanks for the laughs!  Of course the over acheiver in me is feeling inferior cuz I can't tell a joke worth a hoot.  Love that you guys can though - keep 'em coming!  Keep the good news coming too - shrinkage is a favorite thing in our house - at least some kinds of shrinkage ...

    The timing, of course, is critical!  (Not referring to comic timing.)

    Gary,

    You didn't disappoint me!

    Way to Ron!  I'm bouncing in my chair over your positive news on the shrinkage! It was worth waiting to hear.

    Best to you!
