latest update

We got home from Houston just a little while ago. Donnie had scans Monday and saw the dr today. It wasn't good . The only good news is that the clots in his lungs look like they may be breaking up. The bad news is that the chemo he has been taking isn't working. His lymph nodes are growing again. They didn't do chemo today since it isn't working. They are referring him to a different group of doctors there at MD Anderson. They call them the phase 1 doctors. They try all the experimental and clinical trials. They should call by the end of the week to make an appointment hopefully next week. I don't even know what else to say except
Keep praying
love to all

Don't give up! Be strong for Donnie and although his cancer is very different from my husband, I do know that patients switch treatments once another one fails. It's happened to us five times now, so even though I know things might not look good at the moment, keep the faith! A positive attitude, even though it's very difficult to maintain at times, can work wonders for any cancer patient. Prayer and support from family and friends are also at the top of the list. Stay strong...connect with me at anytime if I can be of any help.
God Bless You Both!
