We got the results of Bill's first CT scan since being on the miracle drug Ibrutinib.  There is scant evidence of any lymph nodes left.  The doctor and nurses are thrilled and of course so are we.  I have been a nervous wreck!  This new target drug for relapsed B cell lymphoma is such a hope.  Although it has only been released from clinical trials for Mantle Cell, I have read that they can use it for other B Cells if needed. 

Thank you all for being such a support, Becky

Hello Bill and Becky:

Very happy to hear that you, Bill, are doing so well on the miracle drug, Lbrutnib.

I have not read about it, but have been out of the loop for awhile, due to having  cardiac surgery (two valves replaced) and a HACKED computer.  What a combo.

I wish you nothing but happy days from now on.
