The most common question I get nowadays is, "Alex, how are you doing?" And even though I wrote about this in a previous blog, I realize there are many folks who just want to know how my treatment is going, and if it's making a difference in pushing back my cancer. So, I am not going to bore you with all the details, but here is the short and skinny about my current status:
On Wednesday, November 15, I undergo a CT Scan and Brain MRI to determine if the treatment - a clinical procedure combined with a FDA approved one - is having an affect on my cancer. I'm hoping and praying for positive results: either my advanced Stage IV cancer is spreading or the treatment is punching it back into the ropes.
Also, I'd like to extend my sincere appreciation to those who've supported us through transportation to the infusion center, visitation during my chemo recovery weekends, and food delivery. Through your selfless giving of transportation, time, and food, you have helped raise our spirits during this challenging time. Please know that we love you very much and we're eternally grateful for all the generosity bestowed upon us.
Throughout the remaining time of this treatment, which goes thru May 2018, we're still in need of transportation and sitting with me at the infusion center. However, since my body is handling the treatment better than expected, we've decided to cancel the food delivery and visitation. There are just too many others who need it more than me. Besides, the one side affect that I don't have is lack of eating, so I do not need any encouragement in that area ;-)
Again, thank you to those who have supported us during this time.
