Cancer update..

These "cancer updates" are never my favorite because a lot of times I have to give you  bad news. And this is exactly the case today, sorry.  I had a PET scan and MRI this past weekend and learned some not so great news... the tumors are growing and spreading. The study trial is no longer working for me, so I have been "kicked off" the trial.  We have a list of options ahead of us in this battle, and after talking with Morgan extensively, we are probably going to have to go with the medicine Eribulin next. It is a new chemo med that has had good results. Soooooooo, there you have it. It is ALWAYS a set-back when a medicine doesn't work, but we are always hoping there is something around the corner that is even better.

I love you guys. I heard from Mom and Dad yesterday, and have been thinking about you all since. I am glad to hear about there is another medicine you can try. I am sorry that the other drug stopped working. Thank you for updating your blog. Sending ALL my love every minute to you and your beautiful family.

Christa and family: We are naturally VERY DISAPPOINTED that there is another path that must now be taken but we will be there on your travels. We are sorry we sew not there when the news broke We shall be coming home on Thursday anxious to be home but this was a tremendously rewarding trip.
