Hey everyone, sorry I haven't been on in a while. I just wanted to let you all know how Jason is doing. He had his 3rd chemo treatment Wednesday & everything went fine....still no bad side effects. (thank goodness) He is gonna start getting Avastin w/ his next treatement which will be Wednesday. He had a follow-up appointment w/ his oncologist this past Wednesday & when he examined him he said he could tell that the tumor is shrinking! YAY! I can tell such a big difference in him too. He is able to eat much more now, he has more energy (even w/ the chemo) & he just "looks" better.....not the gray color he was when he was first diagnosed, so it's obvious that something is working. He is scheduled for a CT Scan on 6/4 to actually "see" the progress. Please continue to keep him in your prayers. Hope all of you are doing well!

    Good

    That is good news and especially that he is eating better.  It's easier to fight when you have more energy.  Thanks for your update.

    Glad to hear from you

    So glad to hear Jason is doing good on the chemo.  He shouldn't have any side effects from avastin..   My husband had it for 5 months last year with his chemo and no side effects.  

    Hugs George & Diane

    Hi!

     

    Hi Kris,

    I'm so glad to hear that Jason isn't experiencing side effects at this point.  And getting his appetite back is a positive step in the right direction.  :)

    And I know that you’re taking really great care of Jason, but don’t forget to take care of yourself too.  Make sure that you get enough rest.

    All my best,

    Cyn
