    Default Jim's Update

    ((((((Hugs to All)))))) ~

    Jimís x-ray from last Tuesday reveals that cancer is possibly spreading throughout his lungs.

    He waited 3 weeks after his last round of chemo, expecting to start Keytruda, and was told that the chemo hadnít helped him. He now qualifies for a test study, where his biopsy tissue will be examined and a drug to target his specific cancer will be utilized. This is IF: he gets into the study; he has enough tissue from his biopsy (may need another one, which extends the length of time for testing/treatment); cancer doesnít kill him before the results come back.

    His oncologist had to have known that Jim needed to fail these useless chemo drugs to qualify for this testing and targeted drug treatment. She should have told him this up front.

    I wonder how many Stage IV lung cancer patients have done well on those two chemo drugs. Iíll bet not many, if any.

    We are quite upset/angry about the wasted time, and Jim suffering side effects from those chemo drugs now.

    Jim will see his oncologist on Tuesday to opt into the testing program, and sheís going to get an earful from Jim.

    We endeavor to keep a positive attitude, to trust and believe in the best and right outcome. But this has been disheartening to say the least. Itís hard to hold your chin up, when so much is pressing down on the top of your head.

    We thank you all for your continued love, prayers, support, and compassion.

    Love & Light,

    Rose
