Lynn is planning to provide a more personal update when she feels well enough. I will try to update you on our recent situation.
Sadly the trial proved ineffective. While on this trial the cancer has grown within the liver and in the lymph nodes. The many gains we achieved from May thru October, 2013 have now been overshadowed by the current reality. Lynn is in a similar situation as she was last May. While not as challenging – we do know we will get chemo this time around – her conditions are very similar.
We are switching to a new chemo regimen. Our 2 Oncologists from Fox Chase and Lehigh Valley have been wonderful. They have reached out to each other to make sure their plan for Lynn was consistent. We truly appreciate these 2 specialists talking with each other specifically about Lynn’s care. We are grateful to both of them.
This new regimen requires Lynn to be on a 48 hour infusion based on one of the chemo drugs. So she gets all other meds during the infusion and then she leaves with a pump that delivers the one chemo over 48 hours.
This is new territory for all of us. We are optimistic. If we can get back to where we were just 3 months ago, we will reach out to Johns Hopkins regarding chemo-embolization to reduce the liver tumors.
Please keep Lynn in your thoughts. We could use some help at this point.
