Back at UVa hospital for another week of IL-2. The two weeks in March have given me 4 months of stable disease. Yesterday's scan showed a few mm growth. I got one dose last night and another one this morning and so far not too many bad SEs. I had a small case of the rigors this morming a full four hours after my dose. before it was 1:45 like clockwork when I got rigors. It's been four hours since the second dose and I am doing ok . BP did drop to 92/55 earlier but it is back over 100 now

    Keep at it Thaxter. 

    Keep at it Thaxter.  Hopefully the second time around has less side effects, and more effectiveness. 

    You did it once already, so you know what to expect now.  I am cheering for you to breeze right through it. 

    I'm reminded of a slogan I saw on a US Marines shirt

    "Pain is Just Weakness Leaving the Body"
