Re: [MOL] Laurie Poole



Thank you so much for your quick reply!  My husband & his dad will be
meeting with his Oncologist within the hour this morning, so we hope to know
more.  This is one of two different doctors on his case; basically a 2nd
opinion.  I've read a great deal about drugs to deal with the side affects
of Chemo.  Did your dad have any?  What was the worst part of the chemo for
him?
Thanks again,
Laurie
